Nancy Standlee watercolor collage demo March 18


March 18th SWA Demo Artist…Nancy Standlee

Our March demo artist is Nancy Standlee who will show us how to have fun with watercolor collage!

When Nancy Standlee isn’t taking an art workshop, traveling, or journaling, she’s collecting and hand-painting paper scraps to create colorful collages that evoke the memories and emotions of her past experiences. Nancy is a retired librarian and artist who enjoys creating acrylic, gouache and watercolor paintings. Never striving for photographic reproduction, Nancy instead chooses to leave her figurative artwork to the viewer’s imagination, allowing them to come to their own individual conclusions. The aptly named Uncle Bob’s Goat depicts a mischievous, yet clearly lovable goat who (naturally) resides in Texas. With words found within the collage ranging from “children” to “barn,” it’s fair to say this goat is an old family friend, perhaps with an insatiable appetite for maps, letters or even escaping. No doubt, Uncle Bob’s goat is a welcoming menace to the family. [That’s a self-portrait in watercolor above.]
