FEATURE EXHIBITION AT FT. MADISON AREA ARTS ASSOCIATION
Deborah Baughman showcases her watercolor style at FMAAA gallery on 825 Avenue G
during the month of May. A reception for the artist occurs May 8th from 5:00-
Deb received a bachelors and masters degree from Northeast Missouri State University in Arts Education. She taught elementary and middle school art for 33 years. Reflects Deb, “I was always inspired by the student's creative ideas; they were invigorating in that way. I miss their energy and the children's art, which I love. It would be fun to collaborate on some work with kids!”
Deborah always kept up with her creative work in oils and watercolors while teaching.
“Like many artists, I paint series of subjects, The Famous, The Albums, The Natives,
Mornings, Evenings, Grasses, and so on. I enjoy painting people; I have recently
used as references vintage black and white photos from family and friends. These
works are about Connections... family from different eras, the repetition of shape,
color, and line in a variety of subjects,” reflects the artist. The Iowa landscape
has always been a favorite form of subject matter and Deborah enjoys plein air painting.
“Iowa, Beautiful Land” is what she believes and looks to achieve; “I look for the
abstract in the contrasts of color, light/dark, and grass and field textures. Viewing
