Exhibiting the Art of  Donna Howard   May 28 through July 28, 2018

Art has always been a part of my life.  As a child I was always doodling and drawing everything in my path - clouds, flowers, family pets, or making caricatures of teachers (usually not a good thing to do!).   However, my dream of becoming an artist got pushed aside.  I still studied art and photography but it wasn't until I retired that I am able to devote most of my time taking various classes and workshops.   I enjoy meeting other artists and learning from everyone!

I derive inspiration from nature and the environment.  Painting frees my imagination and is an important personal expression for me.  I paint with both acrylics and oils depending upon the subject matter and enjoy experimenting with different mediums and surfaces. As a result of this I have branched into abstract. My art involves experiments with various mediums and "happy accidents."    Most of my pieces have a lot of layers and texture.I have exhibited in both Florida and Long Island and belong to several Art Associations in both areas.
