Lucille De Thomas, an Oil Impressionist, had an art show at the famous The Glass Room Gallery in San Gabriel on September 11. This is the home of the San Gabriel Fine Art Association.
The show featured oil paintings on various subjects that included seascapes, landscapes, forests, mountains, flowers, animals and people.
Each picture drew the viewers into a special relationship with wild animals that you wanted to reach out and pet. The many seascapes and landscapes gave the audience a breathtaking view of nature. The flowers were so fresh and pretty that you wanted to smell and touch them.
The show also included many of her students’ works of art. The guests were requested to judge the best of their artwork.
The students painted a various subjects that included seascapes, landscapes, pets and nature.
Most of the paintings were offered for sale.
