Our Demonstration Artist was : SHIRLEY MOORE LEAGO

Shirley started out giving us LOTS of good pointers and artsey advice!
Shirley gave us a LOT of good ideas and it was VERY interesting to listen what she said!

Some of Shirley's Artwork

For her demo she used an unfinished painting on which she was currently working. She pointed out why she composed it as she did and how she intended to finish this lower right corner.

One of Shirley's paintings -ITS JUST A TEXAS THANG



Emotional moods set forth with color form and imagination

A word from Shirley Moore Leago about her paintings ~

"I paint to show the beautiful side of life and because I must paint even if I never sold a painting. This is something I have done all my life and if you wanted to get rid of me all you had to do was give me a coloring book and some crayola's."
"I have always loved nature and painting landscapes with wildlife has helped me express that love. I work to capture the luminous and harmonious color God has given us. I do not plan my paintings, but I allow my imagination to take over. If I did know the outcome, what fun would that be? Painting like this allows me to participate in my paintings as if I were there and I could explore the place that I am creating. I find inspiration when I allow the canvas to just happen. As I paint, changing colors, values and compostion the painting develops and even I do not know what the end results will be and I am just as surprised as anyone else to the end results." The artist says, "whatever happens on the canvas was meant to be. "
