Oil Painting

Karen Leffel-Massengil
Karen describes her world as having a frame around it. She compulsively chooses boundaries, shapes & colors judging everything that needs to be painted.
From her home in South Florida, Karen experiments with scenes on her paintings. She uses vibrant colors and an impressionistic style to stimulate excitement. Karen also interprets shapes and patterns with watercolors and oils.

Sally Browning Pearson

Watercolor Painting

Sally Pearson
When I saw my first watercolor painting I was hooked. Watercolor possesses the potential for a fresh and lively look. While the watercolor painting is a demanding medium it always presents something new, giving my life delight and purpose.
After years of watercolor painting,  acceptance into many exhibits brought me commercial success bolstering my confidence. Soon the requests for instruction won me over. My students not only proved I could be a good teacher but helped me to advance my own painting skills.
