Lorene Lovell
will demonstrate Soap and Salt Watercolors
Tuesday, October 9, 2012
6:30 PM social 7 PM meeting
at Matthews Community Center
100 McDowell Street East
Matthews, NC 28105

Lorene's painting's capture the true essence of nature; in beaches and mountain landscapes, rural scenes, majestic trees, garden and wildflowers, and often birds. They are portrayed in a straight forward manner that evokes our sensitivities to nature as she shares her emotions and experiences through her art.

Lorene began to paint seriously in 1986, twenty three years after her formal training during college. During those intervening years she raised two lovely daughters and owned and operated an art gallery/bookstore in Montana where she grew up. (She often called it an "Art Mercantile") After living 26 wonderful years in Colorado she now resides in Belmont, North Carolina. Lorene works full time in her studio at Arts On Main in Gastonia, NC with 25 other artist's where they also display their art work.

Ms. Lovell has developed a technique using table salt and diluted liquid dish soap, which often helps in creating the ethereal feeling in her "magical reality" paintings.

Her work is exhibited in many corporate and private collections, as well as galleries in North and South Carolina, Wyoming, Montana, New Mexico and Colorado.

Our meeting is always the second Tuesday of the month and begins with a 6:30 PM social when you can chat with Lorene and preview samples of her works. At 7 PM we'll have brief announcements followed by Lorene's demonstration. After telling us how she came to love this medium, Lorene will take us step by step through supplies and equipment needed and the demo of her extraordinary technique.
