Duane Heilman

When painting landscapes, still lifes, or portraits, Duane often alters the style of brush work and colors on his pallet to suit the subject. It can vary from fine classical glazing technique to spontaneous impressionism.

Five Poppies by Becky Melcher

Becky Melcher

The beautiful, open skies and the light days gave me the opportunity to study the effects of light on the local landscape. Essentially self-taught, light and tone are the most important elements in a painting for me.

Inktense & Zentangle by Meldra Driscoll

Meldra Driscoll
Zentangle & Inktense methods


Zentangle is a form of art that has been around for thousands of years. The method uses thousands of patterns with repetitive pencil or pen strokes -- I call it “Mindful Tangling.” 
Inktense  is painting with ink. The colors are vibrant and intense if layered, or light and airy if using more water and applying very small amounts of pigment.
