FEATURED ARTIST FOR SEPTEMBER
Watercolors and painted rocks by Marge Shomo will be featured for the month of September. “Have fun, and help people – not necessarily in that order,” is Marge’s goal for the rest of her life. Not only is Marge a watercolor artist, she is also an author of several children’s stories, writing and illustrating them. Marge enjoys reading these stories to her grandchildren’s school classes. And, Marge is an active volunteer for the Red Cross, sometimes traveling to the latest disaster in the USA, helping where she is needed. Taking watercolor classes at several Elder Hostels and from Karen Starn at the Fort Wayne Art Source has opened up another area of Marge’s creativity. Although new at watercolor, her unique style has attracted new patrons. One day, Marge saw a painted rock – and thought, “I can do that!” And she did; do stop by and enjoy our unique “rocky” flower garden. You just might need one for your garden! And how old is our featured artist? Well, you NEVER ask a lady her age, but Marge does not let the fact that she began drawing Social Security several years ago slow her down. For Marge, it is not the years on the calendar, it is the joy for living that counts – and Marge feels young in her heart. Pick up your brush, and come and join Marge in class, you will NOT be as tired, you will NOT be as old as you think you are after being inspired by this delightful senior citizen.
