This gallery is for BVAA member Dorothy Downing.
As a late-comer to oil painting, having raised five children and worked full time in my native New England, I finally, after many years, acquired the specific knowledge and supplies to nurture a calling to craft the art of oil painting.
There is so much more to painting that I had ever thought: the values, the composition, color theory, for example. I have explored worked with watercolor then moved exclusively to oils.
I belong to the Franklin Art Association, BVAA, Lyme Art Association, OPA, and the Massachusetts Plein Air Association.
