FlorABUNDANCE in the Gallery MAY 4th to May 29th, 2011

by Lucille Weber 
Williams Mill Visual Arts Centre Gallery 
May 4th to May 29th, 2011

The snow is melting, 
birds are singing
Lucille's creative sap is flowing.  
The sunny days and warm breezes have her reaching for the spring palette.... 

Vibrant colours and expressive lines
 are being put down
 on the canvasses, boards and paper...

Being an avid gardener ...
she is itching to get her hands dirty in the soil,
for the meantime 
she'll mix up the paint
spread it on the canvas to create a floral impression.

The artist will have a reception on Mother's Day, Sunday May 8th from 1-4 pm.
Bring your Mom for a visit to the Williams Mill and enjoy a cup of tea with Lucille in the Gallery.
