What’s The Buzz?

BNC101018-AN-1 - Birds - What Are You Lookin' At

March 15th – the buzzards return to Hinkley, OH.  Every year.  How do they know?  These particular buzzards decided to move along from Hinkley to the lake.  Guess they’re beach buzzards.   

A few years ago on March 15th, we got up before dawn, made our way to Hinkley and stood in the cold around a campfire-in-a-can (50 gallon drum), drinking coffee and hot chocolate, kibitzing with the dozens and dozens of other people who had done the same while we waited…and waited…and waited.

We saw the sunrise before we saw a buzzard.  Eventually, the cold got to us so we went home.  And what do you think we saw as we rounded the bend for home?  If you guessed buzzards, then you are absolutely correct.

 

Alice Hennessy ~ Pretend Artist

 

Alice dubbed herself as the “Pretend Artist” because she doesn’t paint or sculpt, but what she does is definitely not pretend.

She cleverly embellishes old paintings with fun stickers and/or sayings that result in a completely unique interpretation of the original, then takes a picture of that and makes it into a photo notecard.IMG_3239

Aaron Behnk ~ Handmade Paper

“I’m a diverse artist who is constantly creating in new ways, experimenting with media, and exploring new techniques. Curiosity, and the thrill I get from discovery are my driving forces and am inspired by adventure and resourcefulness.

I currently reside in German Village, Columbus, Ohio with my wife and two cats, where I practice illustration, graphic design, and paper making in my home studio.

My educational background is from Columbus College of Art and Design in illustration, which informs my attention to design, and understanding of commercially applied arts as tools in branding, marketing, communication, and most importantly to inspire people.”

Her illustrations have appeared in several special effects cookbooks by author Michel E. Samonek, and she has also taught the art of calligraphy and traditional pysanky egg art to school students in the Akron and Cleveland Schools.
Marge has created artwork for various music scores published by Ludwig Music Publishing Company, and illustrated the cover of the score for The Firebird that was edited by conductor Frederick Fennell. The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own” requested permission to use the Firebird artwork for the cover of their CD of the same name.

Susan Schauer ~ Painter

wave

Susan has “arted” all her life and found it to be a good winter pastime in her snow-belt hometown of Ashtabula, OH.

After graduating from Miami University, Ohio with an MEd, Art Education and hours beyond her Masters at Notre Dame and BGSU, Susan brought her appreciation for art to middle schoolers, teaching full time for over a decade in North Ridgeville, Amherst, and Elyria, followed by substituting in Vermilion and Milan.

Susan started painting murals, doing illustrations and teaching private art classes.  She began with portraits of people, but soon became proficient in animal portraits as well, and her work was commissioned by animal breeders in England, Sweden, France, and Japan.

Susan’s free-lance illustrations and design work have been in various magazines in the United States and Canada.  She is presently a cartoonist for the Vermilion Photo Journal.

“I have been so lucky to have been involved with art at work & “play”.  Art is a very important way for me to communicate thoughts & feelings.”

 

 

Meg Greenwald ~ Acrylic Artist

IMG_3223.jpg

After spending 20 years in the business world, Meg decided to pursue her passion and has been creating art for the past 15 years. For many years she owned Glass Impressions and created exquisite painted stemware and glassware. Her latest artwork is creating beautiful and vibrant canvases and glassware using an acrylic pour technique.

“I enjoy the freedom of creating and the originality of each piece of work. When I have completed an acrylic pour on canvas, it never really matches what was in my mind’s eye when I began the artwork—I love that element of surprise, and am always fascinated by the shapes and blended colors that have manifested by the time the canvas has dried.
It gives me great pleasure to share my artwork with others because I often get varying visual interpretations which can be an impetus to my creativity.”
