Artist of the Month
Born and raised in Montana, I come from a family of artists. Pencils, paper, paints and crayons were always available. When I was 5, my Mom taught me how to draw faces. She used hard-boiled eggs, and showed me how faces are divided, no matter their shape. Those lessons and moments have stayed with me. Having been raised both on the prairie and in the mountains, the Montana landscape often informs my drawings and paintings. I knew I was lucky to live where I did and never took it for granted. My main media are graphite pencil, colored pencil, watercolors and egg tempera and also, occasionally, crayon. My Mom, my Grandmother and I would often pack a lunch (in all seasons) and spend the day outside drawing and painting. The Montana landscapes I grew up with often appear in my paintings, even now. As an artist I feel driven to create the people and scenes that emerge on my paper, board or canvas. I paint for myself and no one else because I have to paint!

Members of the Clintonville Lions Wheelchair Ramp Committee — Lions Ralph Williams, Lowell Easley, Tom Lederer — installed a ramp at Graceland Cemetery in preparation for Monday’s Memorial Day program. The ramp was requested by the city so that newly elected Mayor Steve Kettenhoven in his power chair can be on the wagon stage with the rest of the dignitaries for the program.
Next week this temporary ramp will be disassembled and the sections will be used, along with other sections, to install a ramp for an elderly individual.
