Art in the Sanctuary and Fireside Room
Never Say Never (oil and acrylics)
Artist: Heather Loa
July 2 – 30

I started painting a few years ago when I retired. My paintings explore the endless variations within nature – shadows, light, texture and colour – that evolve as I apply layers of paint upon the canvas. Each canvas ultimately develops a life of its own.
