I don't know about you, but doorways have always intrigued me. Liz Dorn is a wonderful artist in the Whittier area and she sure know how to capture the essence of buildings. Here is a a little more info on Liz, in the artist's own words:
"I started painting when I was four years old. My father was an artist, amateur photographer, and draftsman. After he and my mother parted company, I was not given any encouragement by my mother and gave up painting altogether. After returning to junior college about eight years ago, I was required to take art classes. I then remembered how much I had loved painting and drawing so I resumed painting and earned my AA degree in art and haven’t stopped since then. "

"Collaborations" the current show at Casita del Pueblo, is a colorful, high-energy display of the colaborative work of Dennis and Terry McGonagle. I was facinated with the multiple techniques used to apply acrylic paint layers to canvas. Dennis and Terry have worked together to produce works of exquisit texture and color. Very creative! - Vicki Schramm
This show runs through Feb. 10, 2010 - don't miss it!

Local artist, Liz Dorn enjoys painting old houses and buildings with the look of a bygone era.
In the artists own words:
"Show me an old building with peeling paint, lots of texture, brick and stone walls that are falling down, and this is visual poetry to me. I also enjoy painting doorways, arches, and arcades. I completed a Brooklyn Doorway series of five water color paintings. I have used the urban decay theme in some of my paintings and would like to do many more. Realistically, this is what is happening to our large inner cities. What was once grand and beautiful has been neglected and no-one has the means for restoration. The recession has taken away the funds for historic preservation and unless neighborhood grass roots organizations recruit volunteers, a lot of these old structures will be gone forever."
