In the Art Bar: Margaret Horak

Margaret started painting in high school and loved every minute of it. She’d had a 38-year absence from her art studies, when in 2010, she took a watercolor class from Ruby Martin in La Conner, and rediscovered her passion. Since then, she's been busy painting whenever her schedule permits.
Before Margaret starts a painting, she thinks about the "invisible" colors hidden in each scene; that's part of the fun for her.She and her husband, Ray, love to travel, and she's inspired by the colors, scenes, people and food during those travels.
Margaret was honored to have one of her paintings chosen by the Mount Vernon Farmers Market for their 2015 poster. 

She raises chickens, has two cats, loves to play her ukulele, guitar and sing. Her favorite time is Wednesday afternoons, when she paints with her friends, the Painted Ladies at the Mount Vernon Senior Center. She hopes to paint forever!
Meet Margaret for a reception before the Original Comedy Night at the Lincoln, brought to you by the  Skagit/mount Vernon Kiwanis Club on Saturday, October 10th.
