    Members of Montgomery Art Association come from all walks of life and their artworks and creative processes reflect this wonderful variety. In this blog, we invite you to enjoy a selection of pieces that explore the color lime green in art. Enjoy this lovely variety of ideas!

    Sue Fierston, "Coos Bay" (8x10" white line woodcut). Foggy Coos Bay, Oregon, woodcut made with xacto knife on plywood panel, oh did my hand ache afterward!

    Paige Friedeman, "#6 Remix" (a 4ft base tetrahedron sculpture). This piece (part of a sponsored commission by One Montgomery Green) made by myself and artists Mary Del Bianco. It is made of mixed media but mainly incorporates repurposed plastic material that are #6 Polystyrene, which is not recyclable in Montgomery County. It was reshaped and manipulated to represent flowers, insects and other organic shapes from nature to remind us all to appreciate the little things around us and reduce our plastic waste. 

    Paula Eillum, "Sonja’s View" (9x12" pastel on sanded paper). Mexican countryside outside of San Miguel de Allende where I have spent the past 11 winters.  

    Alan Rich, "Gretta" (16x20" acrylic on cradled wood panel). One of a few car portraits I've done.

    Judith Levine, "Outside Klum Park (9x12" watercolour on Fabriano 140l lb cold press paper).

    Dora Patin, “Pom Poms” (8x10" oil on panel). This is my standard poodle, Darcy. This special panel was sold by Trekell for their annual pet portrait competition.

    Jennifer Kahn Barlow, "Potential” (12x16" oil on canvas). Green is the color of beginnings!

    Tena Turner, "Summer Flowers" (15x11" watercolor on Fabriano paper). My best offering, lots of green, and some is lime,, especially some small details in the yellow iris. 

    Martina Sestakova,  "It Might Mean Something" (26x20" watercolors and acrylics on yupo). The title is words out of Mary Oliver's poem, 'Watering the Stones'. I love Oliver's work and really enjoy exploring her words and their perceived meanings through colors, shapes, and textures.

    Rosemary Behizadeh Yue, "Summer Respite" (16x20" acrylic on canvas). Many greens describe cool shadows and lush foliage along a small creek. 

    Jenny Wilson, "Violet Coast" (16x24" acrylic on canvas). An imaginary coastline perhaps in Maine or Cornwall.

    Jennifer Beaudet, “Into the Weeds” (30x40” oil on canvas). Inspired by coastal Rhode Island and my morning runs past the lush marshland.

    Ingrid Lohr Matuszewski, "Clore Road" (20x20" oil on canvas) Madison, VA series. This piece is inspired by childhood memories of Clore Road in Madison County, Virginia where my great-grandfather started Clore Furniture in the 18oo's. This is an abstracted version of the road to the homestead and Clore Furniture.

    Lives in: Gaithersburg MD. After moving to one country to another every four years, I finally moved to Gaithersburg, Maryland.  I grew up in Manila, Philippines and married my husband 40 years ago who is a Swiss. Raised two boys and now a very proud grandmother to a boy. 


    Media and subject: Mixed media. I create anything that comes to mind and abstract it. 

    Why you joined MAA: To meet other artists and non- artists alike. 

    Something fun about you: I love to cook and feed people, I love to socialize, play tennis. I just love to have fun! 

    Artist Biography:  Cecilia Tobler was a personal trainer for twenty plus years retired about twelve years ago. Cecilia lived and moved from one country to another every four years with her family in the last 35 years. Cecilia didn’t intend to be an artist until the family moved to Berlin, Germany.  Her first impressions were that the whole city looked like an art museum. While in Berlin, Cecilia decided to teach herself to paint. Her love for colors and textures inspired her to create big paintings. Cecilia’s work was exhibited twice in Havana, Cuba with two other Cuban, artists.

    Lives in: Rockville, MD

    Media & Subject: Acrylic (including fluorescent and phosphorescent versions) and mixed media. My subjects are primarily sourced from science fiction and fantasy.

    Your experiences as an artist: In reflecting on my public experiences as an artist, I feel that I have had three periods when I actively exhibited my paintings: in my 20s with my father at Sundays in the Park in Boston, at Third Friday events in downtown Salisbury, MD a decade ago, and now with MAA.  My work has been shown in the Creative Expressions receiving and Honorable Mention in the Portrait category; Kensington Library, and the Kensington Paint the Town Show, Colorful Exploration at Glenview Mansion, Oasis Gallery, and the more recent virtual Portrait Show. 

    Why you joined MAA: I joined MAA in March 2019 because I wanted to meet other visual artists in the area and to have the opportunity to exhibit with them and support each other. 

    Why you volunteered to Chair Hospitality: I volunteered to join the MAA board and become the committee chair for hospitality because I liked throwing parties! Bringing good food and drink is all about making any event a party. I recommended Bota Nero in Rockville, MD to cater the Paint the Town Show – MAA’s largest annual show. I thought it was important to have a source of delicious, varied, and safely prepared food for such a large public event.  I think that really raised the fun level of the show and most people really liked the food and sangria.

    Why you want to be the Co-VP of Shows: I enjoy helping to create a variety of art events for our members, increasing their visibility to the public in a way that enhances their ability to sell their work.

    Something fun about you: In addition to being a crazy chemist, throwing in chemical effects to enhance my art, I am also a science fiction and fantasy writer and won 3rd place for a short story submitted to the 2020 Baltimore Science Fiction Society Amateur Writing Contest.

    Artist Biography:  I started doing visual art at the age of 4, learning from my late father, James Marcus Mitchell, co-founder of the Boston Afro-American Artists Association.  When I was in college, my father and I exhibited together at the outdoor Sunday in the Park art shows in Roxbury, the largest African-American section of Boston.

    My love of both science and art made me stay involved in both. Even while getting my B.S. in chemistry at M.I.T. in Cambridge, MA, I painted a sea monster on the wall of my coed fraternity.  After getting my Ph.D. in organic chemistry and retired after 23+ years as a chemistry professor, I now have the opportunity in my new science editor job to be more deeply immersed in the visual arts.  One of my central themes is otherness, representing that which is outside of our normal experience in a way that challenges instinctive rejection of the other, fostering both intellectual and spiritual growth. Otherness fits in well with my love of creating science fiction and fantasy art. My application of fluorescence and phosphorescence in some of my paintings accentuates light-dark interplay and enhances the illusion of depth.

    Members of Montgomery Art Association come from all walks of life and their artworks and creative processes reflect this wonderful variety. In this blog, we invite you to enjoy a selection of pieces that explore REPETITION in art. Enjoy this lovely variety of ideas!

    Angela White, "Transition" (24x30" encaustic on wood cradle). It’s the first painting where I combined repeated patterns with sea/landscape imagery.

    Martina Sestakova, "At This Very Moment" (4x6, watercolor on yupo). I enjoy using lines in my artworks: as a repetitive elements and a pattern aspect. I often think of trunks of trees as lines, of rivers and their twists as lines. Doing the same movement with my brush feels healing and meditative to me. e movement with my brush feels healing and meditative to me.

    Alexandra Treadaway, "Swallowtail's Pleasure" (22" x 11" watercolor). Repetitive background in ‘neutral’ watercolors to show off Swallowtail repeatedly sipping nectar.

    Heather Pattee Medrano, "Abstract Tree" ( 36" x 24" mixed media on canvas). Patterns within the tree, patterns in background, patterns within patterns. 

    Stacy Dean Yochum, "My Dream of Jazz" (22" x 14" collage on paper). I love stripes and dots!

    Peijisan Art, "Vote" (9" x 12" ink and marker on paper). This was my winning design chosen for the Montgomery County "promote the Vote" mural contest that ended up being turned into a banner and posted to encourage voting in the Wheaton, MD area this past Oct-Nov.

    Vicky Surles, "Pumpkin Gourds" (11" x 14" watercolor). So many seasonal orange gourds in a huge box at the farmers market.

    Marti Wells, "Waiting for Godot" (11" x 14" watercolors). I saw these Terns walking on the beach.

    Anne Albright, "Repetition - Pattern - Rhythm" (9" x 12" watercolor and Posco acrylic pens). I created this for a watercolor class project. I love doing my watercolor and pen doodles, so I incorporated those into the painting and added Posco acrylic pens for the white shapes. 

    John Mac Arthur, "Bringing in the Sheep" (14" x 18" acrylic). Making America great may only feed the wolves.

    Rosemary Behizadeh Yue, "Lake Colors" (12" x 12" acrylic on canvas). The water reflection holds a repetitive pattern. 

    Jenny Wilson, "Cherry Blossom" (30" x 40" acrylic on canvas). I am looking forward to spring and the wonder of this beautiful gift from Japan.

    Elissa Leibowitz Poma, "3 Monks in the Rain" (6" x 9" watercolor and ink on paper). When I look for repetition when making urban sketches, I seek out items in threes or fives—but make each one slightly different, for interest.

    Leslie Kraff, "River Road Fences" (16" x 20" oil). 

    Kathy Farrell Tynan, "Oregon Coastal Storm" (30" x 27" soft pastel). I experienced this lovely empty beach while traveling the coast of Oregon. The waves seemed to stretch out as far as the eye could see.

    Alan Rich, "#120" (24" x 56" fluid pour on hollow door panel). I used about 12 different colors and some granular gel for texture. Set up on level table and did it all in one session. The colors migrated all on their own without manipulating the panel.

    Lives in: Moved to Cascade, Maryland five years ago after growing up and raising my 6 children in Bethesda.


    Media and subjects: Mixed media with a "double major" in cyanotype and modern botanicals + art quilts

    Why you joined MAA: I am looking for more connection with local artists

    Something fun about you: I am a 6th generation Washingtonian, married my high-school sweetheart and have 6 children and soon-to-be 16 grandchildren. Since first-grade, six has always been my lucky number.

    Social Media:

    Artist Biography:  Lesley Riley never intended to be a full-time, professional artist. She just followed her passion in the small blocks of time she carved out while raising six children. Now, as an internationally known instructor and multi-media artist, Lesley works in botanical printing, mixed and digital media, paint and art quilts. In 1999 she turned her initial passion for fabric, photos, color and the written word into a dream “occupassion” that continues to delight and inspire creatives and art lovers everywhere. Lesley has an extensive background in using color and pattern to create innovative art quilts, fabric collage and most recently modern botanical prints.  Her art has appeared in several books and publications and is collected worldwide.

    Lesley has written several books and articles and has been a guest on several episodes of Quilting Arts TV, profiled on The Quilt Show and is an educator for Golden Artist Colors. In 2008, Lesley developed TAP Transfer Artist Paper for quilters and artists. Her line of botanical inspired fabric, Foliage, is licensed with Northcott Fabrics. As a sought-after workshop instructor, Lesley focuses on motivating, inspiring and empowering her students to take their creative life into their own hands, while encouraging her students to take risks, think outside the box and break rules. Her emphasis is on understanding composition and using techniques and materials to discover and enhance the maker’s own creativity and unique voice.

    Lesley's work has been exhibited in solo and group shows and received the Viewers Choice award at the 2000 Frederick County Art Association Members show.

    Lives in: Potomac, Maryland


    Social Media: Instagram @artgallerybyz

    Media: Mixed

    Why you joined MAA: I was interested in further developing my art practice and making new connections with other artists in Montgomery County. I am a relatively new member and have only recently started participating in some of the MAA offerings. I was super pleased to have my work critiqued by a curator following one of the member shows. It was a great way to learn. I would love to see MAA continue to offer that opportunity. 

    Something fun about you: I’m a published author with of a “how to” book for women who are looking for unique ideas for girls nights out and weekend getaways.  It’s called “The Misadventures of the Hip and Fabulous.”  The book has had a some great reviews. One reviewer shared ”this book is a great motivator to schedule some fun times with friends. Not only are the stories great to read, but a true reminder that life should be about fun interactions. I love the details around each story and how to make it actionable for doing the same. Great read, fun stories, and shows how we can lift up each other in times where everyone wants to talk about the negative.”

    Artist Biography: I am an intuitive abstract painter. Largely self-taught, I use acrylic paint, charcoal, pastels, and oil sticks to put on canvas what I feel through music. I bring to my art studio my life experience and emotions and select music.  Music is as much as a medium as the paints and brushes I used to create. The music informs my color palette.  Influences that you may see threaded through my work include abstract painters like Helen Frankenthaler, Jackson Pollack, and Hiroshi Matsumoto. Equally important to the creative process is the music used for inspiration.  I appreciate a wide range of music to include Billie Holiday, Otis Redding, Andrea Bocelli, Chrissy Hynde, Beck, Iggy Pop, David Byrne, Cake, Beastie Boys, The Rolling Stones, Mac Miller, Lord Huron, Courtney Barnett, Middle Kids, The National, Avett Brothers, Julia Jacklin, Bahamas and Vance Joy to name just a few. 

    Over the last two years, I have exhibited nationally at nationally juried shows, group shows and had my first solo show in August of 2019.  More recently, I have representation at the Sonia Monti Gallery in Paris, France.  Here are a few places that I have shown my work:

    • SK Artspace, Brooklyn, NY - August 2018
    • Fridge DC, Washington DC  - September 2018
    • Artcho , Charlottesville, VA, - October 2018
    • Yellow Barn Gallery, Glen Echo, MD - January, 2019

    Martina Sestakova, Giggles Under the Blanket, Watercolor on Yupo, 4x6”

    Here is Martina’s story behind this piece, "I recall laughing under the blankets when I was a little girl. My brother would be in his bed, under his blanket, and we would talk nonsense and laugh so hard. Such delightful moments. I try to keep this sense of lightness in my life as an adult. It’s just so nice to tuck in and talk in the darkness of the night and feel open and hopeful and loved."

    Pritha Srinivasan, Unforgettable, Watercolor, 14x14”
