Recently returning, fellow member, Iby Siemens, has been a porcelain painter for many years. She says, "It is such a great art, especially as they make such wonderful presents, which can be personalized with initials. Last spring, as a volunteer, I taught porcelain painting to some seniors at Manoir Westmount (I am a Rotary member.). They were delighted, realizing that their creations would become heirlooms." Recently Iby has started with acrylics on canvas. A painting that she did entitled "Iby Siemens: Painting 2009" was at the 2009 WASM Art Show at Ogilvy’s Tudor Hall.
Take a look at our Members' Gallery on our WASM Website. If you would like to put a painting or sculpture there, then do send it to Cathy. If you already have one on there and would like to change it to another, then do send me the new one. Veronica Dragnef, our Treasurer and Web Admin, will place it in the gallery.
