Brown reflects on life's moments

by:  - Columbia River View by Helen Brown


   The watercolors of Sunriver artist Helen Brown, under the theme of "Life Moments in Watercolor," are being featured during the month of April at Art Adventure Gallery in Madras.
   "Any one of my painting s could be titled "Life Moments" because they each represent some aspect of daily life, no matter how small. I enjoy focusing on a seemingly ordinary composition, yet view it from an unusual perspective," Brown said.
   She said the object she paints is less important to her than the impression the light makes as it passes over the object.
   Brown holds bachelor's and master's degrees in French from the University of Oregon. She has exhibited her paintings in the Mirror Pond, and COCC galleries in Bend, Roberts Field Gallery in Redmond, and at the Sunriver Library. She has won numerous awards including the Faculty Forum Purchase Award at COCC, and designed the banner for Magic Circle Theatre.
