Lora Boogaard
Hi! My name is Lora Boogaard and my favorite thing to do is teach Art! I taught Art for 10 years at Dutton Christian School, then later on got a job at Walker Senior center where I also taught a few art classes. I believe that everyone has an inner creativity… for some this creativity is still waiting to be discovered! By joining my beginning drawing class I will show you some tricks and we will do some drawing exercises to help you with that. After I show you the basics, you are free to use your newly learned skills to show off that creativity by drawing the nature around us at Millennial Park! I can't wait to be a part of this!

This beautiful artwork is of my niece that love to spend time at the ocean shore in Nayarit Mexico. My nice love to sit on a rock and contemplate the sun rays reflecting through the ocean waves and at the same time my nice love to feel the Fresh breeze on her face.

Title or Location: Not My Taste
In her piece, ?Not My Taste,? Grand Rapids-based collage artist Mary Bamborough provides a glimpse into an alternate reality in which a bird discovers that its latest meal did not live up to its usual culinary standards. The piece also prompts us to wonder, ?Are the bird and foliage gigantic, or are the people miniatures??

Title or Location: Kevin McCallister
I painted this 16x20 acrylic painting on canvas on Christmas Eve eve, 2023. I become really inspired by Christmas movies this same time every year. I've always enjoyed drawing and painting portraits, particularly movie characters. I believe movies connect people, its a universal language. A great movie can bring back so many feelings and memories too.

I painted this right before Christmas in 2022. I am inspired by movies and believe it's a universal language that connects people. I particularly enjoy painting the memorable characters. I've always loved drawing and painting portraits, particularly movie characters that most recognize right away and feel connected too.

Title or Location: Snowshoe Hare
A favorite vacation spot for my husband and I is the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan. In the morning we enjoy having our coffee on the front porch, listening to the peaceful sounds of the surrounding forest and it's wildlife. One morning we spotted a Snowshoe Hare at the edge of the property. It was one of those moments in time that makes me feel the wonders of nature.The Snowshoe Hare was thought to be gone from this area due to the abundance of predators. Seeing one was a truly joyous

Title or Location: Fields and Skies Blewbury Oxfordshire
A friend asked me to create a painting for her to give to her sister as wedding gift. She sent me some some ideas of colour pallettes she liked and I used a photo I had taken of the landscape in Oxfordshire as inspiration. I painted the whole canvas bright pink first and let it dry and then painted on top.

Katy fit right in to the five acre farm and spent each day

Title or Location: Jammin'
This piece, along with a few others was created for use as "merch" to sell at music events. I'm also a singer songwriter so I'm always looking for ways to bring my art and music together. The original idea for this painting was completed on the computer but the idea of a big display banner popped into my mind and I decided to do a large canvas. The canvas is loose, about 36 x 42 inches. Acrylic on 12oz canvas and is currently hanging in my living room here in Gresham, Oregon USA. Thanks for your
