Dorothy Wagner
Pasteurs Laboratory
20 x 13 inches

Dorothy Wagner is our second place People's Choice Award winner from Wet Paint Day at Applewood in early August of this year. She grew up in Berrien Springs, Michigan and with the help of a scholarship from General Motors, Dorothy attended and graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

She is currently a member of the Blue Water Art Association of Port Huron, Michigan and has been accepted in many juried art shows throughout the years. Dorothy enjoys painting with watercolor and acrylic paints. She sees painting as a constant challenge and an endlessly and deeply fulfilling fascination. Her goals are to enrich and enhance the lives of her viewers, to show the beauty that surrounds us, to make us aware of the little things that we may not notice and to explore nature and its many hidden facets. Her subject matter ranges from figurative to landscape and still life, and her main inspiration is the light, the shadows and the interplay of warm and cool colors.

Dorothy Wagner has won many awards over the years, but feels the greatest award of all is the satisfaction and joy her viewers feel when observing her artwork.
