Blooming Colors by Susan Story
Nature continuously provides us with a display of Blooming Colors. During the months of May and June, we are treated with a rainbow of colors from the beautiful flowers blossoming and awakening our senses with their sweet perfume. This is our usual impression when we think of blooms. I prefer to think of Mother Nature as continually sharing blooming colors as she moves (travels) through the seasons, continually providing me with new painting inspirations and a variety of color palettes. - Susan Story
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties is pleased to host two events with local artist Susan M. Story. She will be exhibiting her landscape pastel paintings during the months of May and June. Susan will also be conducting a workshop on painting wildflowers.
