“I have a strong connection to our environment and specifically animals, and spending time with them always replenishes my spirit and soul. I aspire to capture their emotions in my work. The serious gaze of a hawk, the gentle caring of a mother bear with her cub, a fox pup soaking in a warm morning sunbeam.”

“When I first started, I was surprised how I can transform and shape the paint. By using the free-flowing aspects of it, I am able to blend the colors together creating unique variations in my work. This acrylic painting is about having fun, learning a different art form, experimenting with techniques, and taking the personal challenge to create!”
– Marilyn Rau (Star Prairie, Wis.)

“Painting is my voice, my view and my interpretation of what makes me tick. It’s a progress of continual growth, which sometime fares well and other times pushes me to go beyond my comfort zone.”
– Susan Klem (Star Prairie, Wis.)
