Senior painter is the "junior" of the bunch

June 3, 2003

Albany-- One budding painter's work is being featured at the 10th annual "Shades of Gold" Art Show in Albany.

This painting of magnolias is aptly titled "Southern Elegance." It's one of three paintings by Janis Thompson. She picked up a paint brush for the first time three years ago when she joined an art class at the Senior Center in Albany. Thompson says she was a bit intimidated at first, "Oh yes. Because I thought everyone else had so much more experience that I did, I thought."

Now, her paintings are good enough to be on display with other members of the art class. The art show is open to the public through the end of the month.
