Judy Beals has adventured into watercolor, acrylic, encaustic, collage, print- making, and pastels. Her subject matter focuses on the layers of our earth: water, earth, and sky and the spirit and energy that connects them. Janet Juel Cook draws her inspiration from her native North Shore area. Painting in oils, she depicts familiar outdoor scenes of the ocean, beach, still life, landscapes, and children playing by the shore. Patricia Dunbar is a life-long designer, with an interest in typography, drawing, photography, and painting. Pat paints with transparent watercolor as she loves watercolor for the clear colors, the transparency, and the washes that can be built up to create interesting surfaces.
