Crayons and clay collection. It amazes me how things can come full circle in one's life. In 5th grade I won top award for a picture I made using drops of melted crayons to portray a large sunflower. It was on display in an art show in Madison Wisconsin. I never forgot about that award over the years, so I started playing around with crayons and came up with a three-dimensional art using melted crayon as background, polymer clay for the scene then an acrylic cover overlay. The lesson I'm learning is, it is never too late to play with crayons, or, be creative and find new uses for old things.
Vivian is an accomplished artist of quite varied subject matter; but inherent in all her works is the beauty of color and how it is affected by light and shade. She works in pastel, watercolor, acrylic, and colored pencil--always striving to achieve beauty in each medium through her emotional use of color and tone. Vivian has been professionally active in group and individual shows since 1975. She regularly teaches pastel, portraiture, colored pencil, and is also in demand for demonstrations and workshops in these disciplines as well as in watercolor. Of particular interest is painting on location. The excitement and involvement with the moment is particularly rewarding. "The whole body, and its senses, is involved with nature because of the urgency to depict an increasingly changing scene," says Vivian. Contact the Artist, Vivian Ripley, at 614-451-6254 for prices.
Joy has an extensive art collection of her admired famous international and local artists, and her collection is on display in her home. "You can hardly see the walls," she says. Busy as her life is, Joy has taken many classes at the Columbus College of Art and Design . Her favorite medium is graphite pencil on paper. Joy is never without her camera, as she takes pride in the original art she creates from her own photographs, and a sketchbook is always within reach. Joy puts her passion and experience to work. After receiving a Friendship of Education Award for an art project in 2000, she became a Docent of the Columbus Museum of Art. As a Board Member of the Worthington Arts Council, she created an "Art in Poetry" workshop for elementary school aged children.

I started painting in retirement. I paint with oil or colored pencil and draw with ink, Copic markers, and graphite. For my images of people, I’m most interested in capturing them when they are busy with their own thoughts or activities and not posing. The horticultural images are from my garden. I produce new colored-pencil pieces annually for the American Hosta Society and its local chapters and create hosta coloring pages for their members. I’ve won awards from Bryn Du and Worthington Area Art League and have been invited to participate in several shows at the McConnell Art Center.

Art is my visual language. My focus is on the beauty of the world around us. There is so much beauty in almost anything, in a wild flower, in old trees, in a lake's reflection in light, or in an old man's face, all waiting to be delineated. I choose subjects that are a little bit mysterious, that invoke curiosity, or give peace and serenity. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Longtime WAAL member Sally Molnar was a watercolor artist. She started taking drawing and watercolor painting classes at Whetstone Recreation Center in the early 1980s. She was in the ceramic clay classes at that time and wanted to do more decorative work on her ceramic pieces. She also took classes at the Pricilla Tyson Columbus Cultural Arts Center. After many classes she felt she was not making any progress and stopped painting. In 1995, she started taking watercolor painting classes at the Franklin Park Conservatory with Chris Curry and rediscovered her love for painting. She enjoyed being creative with her watercolor paintings and liked the way paint flowed when mixed with water, always interesting results. In September 2001 she visited the South of France for 2 weeks with a group of 17 women artists to paint the countryside. It was a wonderful experience which she spoke of often.
Alan Sippel was a Methodist Minister and lifelong artist. "I grew up in a home where there were always artists present. My mother was an art teacher as well as a practicing artist. Art theory and history came as early as nursery rhymes. I can remember my younger brother sitting in his high chair with a mound of "real" clay before him on the tray and the injunction to create. As children, we were never excluded from adult conservations about line and color and composition. As a family, many of the high holy days of the church were spent in front of appropriate works of art at the Cincinnati Art Museum. At Christmas, we would discuss a Giotto nativity. On Good Friday, we would mediate on an El Greco crucifixion. Art was the language of my childhood and youth. In college and graduate school, I minored in fine arts. And I always felt fortunate to have encountered Vickers and Haycock at Ohio Wesleyan University. But my professional life limited my time for drawing painting. Once retired, I explored that language again. Sometimes, the vocabulary and syntax come back slowly. But trust that sometimes the language of childhood comes back and there is communication once again."
