|"Bouquet," Mary Schumacher|
Mary says this about her art, "I started painting soon after my father died, about 20 years ago. He left me all of his art supplies, which were plentiful. At first I didn’t know what to do with all of it, but in going through it, I discovered how intriguing it was—water colors, oils, pastels, etc. It wasn’t long before I was dabbling away, and then taking workshops, and studying with Russ Hamilton in Fort Collins. Watercolor is my favorite medium, but lately I’ve been experimenting with collage, abstractions, spray paint—anything and everything, including cat fur and dryer lint. Not everything turns out beautifully, but it is all great fun"!
