New artwork displayed at Dixie

B1.jpg

The artwork of local painter Loretta Shadow Owens is now on display at the Dixie Center for the Arts in downtown Ruston. “A Lifetime of Friendly Faces” is a collection of portraits Loretta has painted of friends and acquaintances over the years.
Owens has always been a passionate person and an active community member; from a Girl Scout and 4-H member, to being nominated for the first “Outstanding Woman” award by the Lincoln Parish Chamber of Commerce, but Loretta did not become a painter until she was 40 years old.

Unusual experiences around the big city

in

It was Sunday morning. Six a.m. time for up and at ‘em to make 8 o’clock worship at the church.
Afterwards, we lunched at Olive Garden and headed home for a nap, after which it was time to get ready to move over to Jonathan’s and Susan’s for my Sunday through
Wednesday routine, plus getting in some practice on my new piano at their house. They’ve had my Baldwin grand piano since I moved from Ruston, but now they have this full sized electronic spinet piano (a Yamaha) in the bedroom I call mine at their house. I love it because I can do scales, chord arpeggios, finger exercises, etceteras, without interfering with the family activities downstairs in the living area. My hands are responding to the practice and I have visions of being able to actually play the piano again someday. I do believe it will help me stay mentally alert.
