PAINTING IS MY PASSION! I enjoy painting experimental watermedia , mixed media, acrylic, encaustic (beeswax), and oil / cold wax - plus teaching encaustic (both basic and advanced), cold wax and oil, and experimental watermeadia workshops and weekly classes. These different collections can be found in my 'Works' page. An example of my non-object art (or commonly known as abstract) is shown above.

Annville Photoshoot
June 11, 2013

Article and photo by Kathy Michels and picture of Larry Lombardo's daughter, Gracey.

The Hershey Area Art Association recently sponsored a photo shoot at a farm in Lebanon organized by Larry Lombardo.  It was a great turnout of artists and 4 beautiful young people served as models for the event.

The models took turns working with all the artists.  They were very good at changing poses and emotions on a moments notice and the artists kept them busy for nearly two hours. 

There were many places to photograph the models such as buildings, bales of hay, hillsides, gates, old tractors and a beautiful golden glowing wheat field.  It was a beautiful setting and by 7 pm the sun was shining giving a golden glow to everything.
