31 Days of Como by Rhoda Lucey

Exhibit Gallery
1/23/2017
10:00 am

Rhoda Lucey has explored a number of different subjects for her artwork, but often gravitates toward animals. In October 2016, she participated in the Inktober drawing challenge to try out a new artistic medium — sumi ink. Many traditional sumi brush paintings draw their themes from nature, so Rhoda decided to do a painting of one of the creatures of Como Zoo each day.

Rhoda Lucey has explored a number of different subjects for her artwork, but often gravitates toward animals. In October 2016, she participated in the Inktober drawing challenge to try out a new artistic medium — sumi ink. Many traditional sumi brush paintings draw their themes from nature, so Rhoda decided to do a painting of one of the creatures of Como Zoo each day.
