Painting with paper is a fun activity that inspires creativity!                                                                                            Creating with just sharpies, tissue paper, and a tiny bit of glue can inspire amazing pieces of art. We “Painted with Paper” at  last weeks paint group and the starts are looking very promising !

While Norwell , MA  was getting slammed with a spring snow storm the James Library was HOT.                                                                    The opening reception was packed and Marcia’s work was the perfect antidote to a spring snowstorm. Marcia’s paintings brought the warm and toasty feel to every viewer. These pictures represent a small view into the exhibit but to get more of that spring feeling you will have to see it for yourself! Go to the James in Norwell, MA  and see Marcia Ballou’s beautiful paintings and you will not be disappointed 🙂!upcoming/d3mg7
