When Miss Ginn, our art teacher, asked my fifth grade class to draw likenesses of the student next to us, most of the resulting portraits brought huge guffaws and many guesses. When Miss Ginn held mine up, all the students were quiet for a stunned second, then they said, “It’s Jewel!” The teacher suggested to my mother that I have art lessons. That experience was encouraging and confidence building. I wish I had kept that crayon drawing.
To see more of Flo’s colorful paintings, be sure to stop by her studio during ARTS Obispo’s Open Studios Art Tour the weekend of October 13th & 14th.
