There were pictures we didn't have room to include in the 2018 Spring issue of OLLI Expressions.

Here's your chance to view what you missed!


First of all, there was the Front Cover.


Spring

The picture, Spring Flowers, is acrylic on paper by OLLI member Theresa Parker and is the product of an unusual technique. "I put some random strokes of paint on a piece of glass," said Theresa, "then pressed a sheet of drawing paper onto it. When I peeled the art paper away, I had an abstract image that seemed to resemble a bunch of flowers." So she developed it to create the strong image we see here.


For pages 2 and 3, Click Here. The Director's Note by Brett Harris and the President's Post by Betty Dettre are on page 2. On page 3 there is excellent advice by Carolyn Rotherby about remodeling your body--"healthier waistlines and smaller clothes beat new draperies any day." Also, Nanci Youngblood describes John Pendergrass' seminar about his experiences in Vietnam during the war and during a recent trip.
