Granbury: Telise Rodelv demo March 12 on Abstracts; Camera Club meeting March 20 on composition

Lake Granbury Art Association

General Meeting, Monday, March 12

7:00 P.M. at the Shanley House

Mark your calendars!



Local Artist Telise Rodelv will give a demonstration on painting Abstracts with the oil/cold wax technic at the next meeting of the Lake Granbury Art Association. The LGAA meets at 7 p.m. Monday March 12 at the Shanley House Center for the Arts Gallery, 224 N Travis Street, right by the Hood County Library. This event is free and is open to the public.

Rodelv began her journey in art as a photographer, but painting with acrylics soon followed. Rodelv was fortunate to be part of “The Torpedo Factory Art Center†located near Washington DC, which is home to the largest number of working artist studios accessible to the public in the United States.  It was where Rodelv was able to learn different forms of art from a wide variety of Artists.  While there, she made custom tiles, painted murals, worked with textiles and painted a vast array of acrylic paintings.

From art to clothing, the mid-century modern style has always been “near and dear†to Rodelv’s heart. She was born and raised in Norway.  Rodelv has been living in Granbury for the last two years but she has been in the United States since her early twenties.  She has only been working with the oil/cold wax technic she will be demonstrating since her arrival in Granbury.  She is completely self-taught in this process.

Rodelv said “The gift of looking at all the beauty around me, then creating art from that inspiration, still brings me the most joy in my life.  It is my sincere wish that some of the joy and love I feel while creating comes through my art to the viewer, only then will I know I am giving the greatest gift back.” / 817-219-6782

Designing a Painting May be Realistic or Abstract


Deanna will talk and Demo about several ways to get started

Then you choose and begin to sketch, list thoughts, color schemes etc or just dive in .

Lets Start a New Painting March 17th I am suggesting 20×20 canvas or larger, 22×30 watercolor paper or something in that ballpark, bring your drawing tools, acrylics, watercolor, normal water buckets etc. and let’s gather and work on a new project.

Hopefully something I talk about will excite you to maybe try something different, (painting the feeling of Spring, Symbols of Spring, or a Spring object).

If that does not excite you bring a topic or feeling or subject and PLAY.

Deanna is looking forward to sharing some ideas and techniques

Our “Little Short Show” is now up at the Shanley House. Come and visit to see all of our talented artists.

Granbury Camera Club

Join the group for the March meeting at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, March 20 at The Shanley. This month we will focus on compositional technique.

We’re hoping for good weather! First, we will gather at 6:30 pm at The Shanley and start promptly with brief videos and instruction. Then, we will head out to practice what we’ve learned. We will walk in Shanley Park and over to Granbury Square to collect photos for our assignment, which promises to be a lot of fun.

We’ll follow up by having you post some of your favorite photos on our Granbury Camera Club Facebook page.

Bonus: Learn a fun post process technique designed to help you hone your composition skills.

While I will lead the brief instruction, I will use some great information from seasoned professional photographers. I also hope that we all help each other to “see” compositional opportunities during our outdoor exercise. Even better – This will be a great opportunity to get to know each other!

If you must arrive late, look for us in the park or on the square. If you call or text me, I’ll tell you where I am. Looking forward to March 20th!
