Paintings by Dodie Hamilton-Brandon “Since coming to the Rogue Valley thirty years ago I have been pursuing my art career as a painter and teacher of watercolors. I have become known especially for my florals, but recently I have been venturing into the area of non-objective subject matter using collage and acrylic media. During this month of April, as featured artist, I am showing both areas with the theme “Dodie Welcomes Spring”, which not only expresses my joy at the coming of spring after our dark, cold winter days but also my love of color.” Happy Birthday to Dodie as she celebrates her 93rd birthday this month! Dodie is an inspiration to all of us!In 1998, she was one of the founding owners/partners of Art & Soul Gallery and served with the other owners as Executive director for eleven years.Thank you, Dodie!
