March 2013 Artist of the Month

This month's Westchase Artists Society Artist of the Month is the wonderfully talented Nancy Cross.  Nancy is a relatively new member to the group and a fabulous addition to the club.  Without delay, here's Nancy's interview:

1.  Tell us a little about yourself.
I like to paint ocean scenes and am now interested in painting birds. I paint in acrylics. I also like to garden. I am active in my church, Lutheran Church of Our Savior.

2. What made you want to become an artist?
Vacations on the California coast inspired me. And, I love color, especially the cool colors.

3. Describe your creative process.
I am inspired by photos I have taken at the beach or pictures of lighthouses. I usually paint on a 16x20 canvas. That seems about the right size for me.

4. What are your favorite movies, books or groups?
The movies I like to see are romantic comedies. Books would be mysteries. Past groups have been art leagues in California and Louisiana. in Tampa, it would be the garden club, the Gadabouts and church groups.

5. What groups are you affiliated with?
Right now, I am affiliated with the Westchase Artists Society.

6. In 10 years, where do you see yourself?
In 10 years, I hope to still be painting and improving my work.
