Jolene Roberson has been working with us for about a month now. She has a degree in art, and has experience with painting portraits in oil. She lives with her husband Jason and her daughter Lana in LeCenter. For the Northfield Home and Garden Show on March 26th, I asked her do a little decorative painting on an old chair. The base color is Benjamin Moore 2004-70 “Light Touch.” This she embellished with some Telemark styleRosemaling in artist’s acrylics. For durability we added a coat of Benjamin Moore Stays Clear acrylic polyurethane.
If you come to the Home and Garden Show at the new middle school, stop by our booth and check out the new Cannon Valley Colors palette designed by Sarah Mensink. She has been working hard at pulling colors out of our local scenery. Jolene and Sarah mixed up some samples which will be on display at the show.
