O'side Bakery Art Walls program. Hanna Russell and Ruth Jameson with painting by Hanna.

Art Walls for Students @ O'side Bakery

When I created the Art Walls program for the Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation in 2018, I had the vision that someday this program would be available for students of our Oceanside High Schools.

That dream came true last month when the ACE Studio and OCAF had a student exhibition from the El Camino High School. It was my great honor to meet and to become the owner of one of the paintings from this exhibition.

Hanna Russell, a truly remarkable young woman of great potential has created several Stippling Paintings for this show. It takes an incredible amount of time, talent, and passion to create this type of art work. Stippling has a long historical place in the world of fine art. It is like not other kind of painting as it is done with a pen and ink which it's self a challenge that is not for the faint of heart, but for those who has the passion of the vision in their mind's eye and the patience to just do it.

Hanna has that Heart in her works. Thank You Hanna for your energy and ability to bring to our viewing your works so endearing and beautiful.
