ART TOUR: “Winter Warmth” Wednesday, December 1, 2010
 
Doris Umbers’ writing class attended the Art Tour of “Winter Warmth”  at NYIT Gallery 61 where three artists -- Rozina Vavetsi, Louise Bourne and Alison Dibble, PhD – discussed their creative process. 
Vavetzi discussed her graphic designs and explained that in using the computer there is always the “delete” button so that corrections can easily be made. She paints on canvas using the digital process  and layers it with collage. Vavetsi quoted Picasso who explained that what we begin with often ends up different from what we planned.
Alison Dibble has written and illustrated botany books. She comes to painting as a scientist, but grew up surrounded by works painted by her mother, an artist. Alison studied painting and color theory with Louise Bourne and compared painting to writing: sometimes you start out with a small idea and muted colors, and as you work ideas develop, inspiring more intricate colors and forms.
Louise Bourne teaches at Maine Maritime Academy and privately. She described the painting process as seeing light and dark, warm and cold, and experiencing sensual surfaces as if spreading peanut butter over olive oil.
