Marita Maloney, Water Colors

Marita Maloney, born in  Brookline, now living in Bethel Park, briefly toyed with the idea of studying  fine art in college.  She opted for the “more practical” choice of an Education degree but in her retirement she has once again picked up the brush.  Her goal now it to have fun.

She takes classes with Marcie Mason in Regent square and even when working on a class assignment she likes to find ways to make a piece uniquely her own.  That’s what happened with “Dyed in the Wool” , the picture we used for this month’s banner.  “The exercise was to do some basis yellowish sheep.  I wanted to have fun with it.”

We like the way Marita thinks. It also goes with this month’s theme of “Ageless and Stageless”. Where you are in life shouldn’t be a barrier to where you want to be; why can’t you be pink just because you are a sheep?!
