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!

Marty Wilson's new watercolor paintings will transport you to a Southern California beach! She writes:
'A favorite pasttime of mine is walking on piers that jut out into the ocean at the very edge of the continent. On the pier near Avila Beach I came across this magnificent pelican, He was so stoic and unflappable and allowed me to get close and observe the deep colors, patterns and contrasts of his feathers.'

Donna Larson's new work is stunning. This local artist has always been interested in all kinds of art and have been drawing and painting for as long as she can remember. She has a fine arts degree from Cal State Fullerton specializing in drawing and painting.
In her own words:
"The painting of the Plum Blossoms was inspired by a trip to Schabarum Park in Rowland Heights, Calif. There is a whole orchard of these beatuiful trees that were given to the park by Japan. They bloom January thru Febuary each year. I painted the image on chinese rice paper then mounted it on watercolor paper."
