Betty Levy was born in Argentina and exhibited a very creative nature at an early age. She told me, "I like to paint for the joy of it." The image you see below was painted when she was in Greece. She went to a pottery workshop taught by the man you see in the image below.
As a young person living in the Miami Beach area of Florida she had two notable accomplishments -- wining first place in the Canada Art Show 1984 and winning first place in the same year at a show at the Surfside Recreation Department. While in Miami she was an understudy to a remarkable painter -- Juan Manuel Segovia.
With two sons to bring up, homemaking and motherhood created a lengthy lapse in her career as an artist. She decided to return to her art and started taking classes again at Brookhaven College and most recently at Richland College in Dallas, Texas where she had an exhibit in their Brazos Art Gallery.
I told her that I would love to share one of her images on our Computersavvyseniors blog, and she generously agreed. Betty has traveled extensively and she takes pictures wherever she goes. These pictures inspire her painting. The paintings you see below came from pictures she took in Prague.

Special thanks to Betty Levy for sharing her talent with all of us.
