Excerpt of "Peace" by Bessie Rayner Parkes
The steadfast coursing of the stars,
The waves that ripple to the shore,
The vigorous trees which year by year
Spread upwards more and more;
The jewel forming in the mine,
The snow that falls so soft and light,
The rising and the setting sun,
The growing glooms of night;
All natural things both live and move
In natural peace that is their own;
Only in our disordered life
Almost is she unknown.
May 2019 - Artist of the Month Show
"Poils et Plumes"
Artist Dominique Bachelet always loved the quote by Nikos Kazantzakis: "You have your brush, you have your colors, you paint paradise, then in you go." Painting is her escape from world problems.
Reception at the Gallery during Corvallis Arts Walk on Thursday May 16th with wines from Wineopolis.
Watercolor artist Dominique Bachelet came from France to the US in August 1979. Ever since, she has taken sporadic art classes wherever she lived across the continent.
In Olympia, WA, she met watercolor artist and teacher Melodi Cottongim who inspired her to pursue watercolor painting.
As retirement loomed, Dominique dialed back her scientific research duties and is now slowly learning to focus on art while teaching part time at OSU.
She is a member of the Oregon Watercolor Society and of the Corvallis Art Guild.
