Gaye Garrison "I am attracted to bright colors and the more the merrier. It seemed only natural to show that my love for color takes different creative paths - the thread and pins represent my stitching (I used to be a doll maker) and the crayons and pastels represent my earliest sticks of color and my mature version. Gotta get my hands on lots of colors!"


"Colors" pastel 

Rod Groves  "the first is a somewhat abstracted painting of the artists as a painter, the second an even more abstract treatment of the subject, and the third a non-representational painting inspired by the same subject (very loosely). "
