“I have lived in Santa Clarita for the past 10 years,” Willis said. “I am so excited to have the opportunity to show my paintings, because I am a member of the Santa Clarita Artists’ Association, that’s where I met Zony.”
Their exhibition is titled “Two For the Road” and will be on display until June 30th.
“I am a local artist,” Gordon said. “I love local community activities like this. A lot of my art pieces are inspired by the nature here. Everything revolves around the community. When I have a picture, I don’t necessarily paint it how it is, I interpret it depending on the mood and surroundings.”
Willis is retired now and after a career as a graphic designer, she is really grateful that she has the opportunity to paint almost every day now.
“I do watercolors now because I think after all of those years in advertising, I just want to get things done right now, fast, and on deadline,” Willis said. “Oil paintings sometimes take years and I don’t feel that I have the luxury to take all that time. Watercolor paintings only take a couple days to finish.”
All of the pieces were done in watercolor.
A live artist demonstration will be on June 22.
