This year the Covered Bridge Art Association is raffling off an oil painting by artist Peggy Underwood for this years scholarship fundraiser. The work “Mansfield Mill in Winter” is a beautiful work that captures the beauty of winter at the mill after a fresh blanket of snow falls.
She started Photography as a serious hobby over thirty years ago. With the guidance of a professional wedding photographer she became adept at seeing beauty through the camera lens. She is accomplished in wedding photography, baby and senior portraits. These days Peggy prefers to photograph as a hobby, concentrating on animals and florals. Her photography background is a great boost in acquiring reference material for her paintings. Her other interests include rural life, (cats, dogs and especially horses), baking, woodworking, photography, and painting. Her love of animals and nature can be seen in her art, as she prefers to paint birds and animals. Local wild life, domestic pets and farm animals are her preferred subjects.
Raffle proceeds go to our scholarship fund to help a young artist from Parke County with advanced art studies. Raffle tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. When in Rockville please stop in the gallery, located on the north side of the square, to purchase a ticket or just stop to see all our wonderful art. Drawing will be held at the gallery on November 6th. Visit our web site at www.rockvillecoveredbridgeartgallery.com.
