Artist Profile July 2019 Jeanne Conant

 


I work in two completely different mediums. I create abstract paintings in pastels and also detailed scratchboard artwork. Pastel and charcoal are my medium of choice in my large abstracts. I enjoy breaking down places or objects to their basic shapes and shallow forms. I am inspired by Franz Marc, Pablo Picasso and Cézanne. They endeavored to paint multiple views of a thing within the same painting, flattening the picture plane and exaggerating select features. There are also a few artists of today whose work I admire. Line, shape, value and color are evident in my work and are important to me as I aspire to explore the object or place I am drawing.

  Fashion July 2019 Fashion: But it’s a Dry Heat!

By Karen R. Smith


After an absolutely wonderful extended Spring, we’re right where we belong -- hot and headed into Monsoon. Let’s be frank: there will be three-digit temperatures for the next 100 days (or more) and we still have to wear clothes when we go outside...so we need clothing that’s comfortable despite the heat! Even in protective clothing, you’ll want to use sunscreen on your kids’ bare skin. Generally speaking, there are two different kinds: physical sunscreens, and chemical sunscreens. Physical sunscreens sit on top of the skin and form a barrier to harmful rays. Zinc oxide is a well-known physical sunscreen; most mineral sunscreens are of the physical barrier type of protection.
