This is the second year for Lisa Watkins Elkins to be on the Round about Art Tour. Although oil painting is her primary art interest, Lisa has a few contemporary and abstract acrylic paintings as well as some mixed media.
“The beautiful thing about art is how you begin to look at the world differently. In the past I would have merely taken for granted that a sunny day is beautiful. But now, my goal is to transfer all the colors, textures and shadows onto a canvas in a visually pleasing interpretation. I am striving to learn those elements, like brush stroke and paint selection, that effect the emotion of the art. The joy is definitely in the journey!”
Lisa holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with a communication major and a music minor. She, and her husband John, are thankful to have raised a family in Arkadelphia. They are blessed with four grandchildren.
Farrell Ford is her mentor and oil painting instructor.
