• Jane Mick is an award-winning fine art painter in oil. Texture in her paintings adds dimension and interest. “My painting is titled ‘Paris.’ I love to create art with a creative flare of interest and fun. My website is JaneMick.com.”
• Mardilan Georgio says, “Nature is a strong theme in much of my art, especially in watercolors. The human face and body in motion is a favorite theme for my charcoal work. ‘Laundry Day in Kotor’ is a watercolor of a medieval village in Montenegro off the Adriatic Sea where time has stood still. My webpage is: www.santaclaritaartists.org/mardi-georgio.html.”
• Debra Zednik says, “My painting, ‘Wabash Ave, Chicago,’ is an acrylic with impressionist influence, inspired by light and reflections of people in the street.”
• Olga Kaczmar is a portrait, animal and landscape artist. “I’m thrilled that my watercolor seascape of ‘Nubble Lighthouse in a Storm’ was accepted. I have over 300 art pieces uploaded at: fineartamerica.com/artists/olga+kaczmar.html.”
• Dody Rogers: “Near Tuscany” is Rogers’ oil exhibit. “Traveling to many countries and enjoying California outdoors has given me photo opportunities and oil painting subjects.” See: www.santaclaritaartists.org/dody-rogers.html.
• Mike Farrell will be exhibiting with his pen and ink stipple art titled, “Chimney Sweeps.”
