Vie Dunn-Har, of San Antonio, will demonstrate floral painting in oil at the next New Braunfels Art League meeting Tuesday, April 18, at 7 p.m. in the NBAL Gallery, 239 W. San Antonio St.
Using a limited palette, she has developed her oil technique through many years of experience. She considers herself to be a contemporary realist and prefers to paint florals and women.
“A flower, like a woman, is a delicate creation—yet they each have strengths that enable them to prevail over adversity," she said.
She recently received word that she has been accepted into the National Oil Painters of America show to be held at the Greenhouse Gallery of Fine Art in San Antonio this year. She will be featured in a June exhibition at the Universidad Autonoma de Coahuila, Mexico.
In July she will have shows at Martin-Rathburn Gallery in San Antonio, and at Stable V in Wimberley. Her paintings may be seen at Stable V and Pate Gallery in Marble Falls.
The meeting is open to the public.

Polly, Smitty, Saul, Billy, Violet, Phyllis and a newcomer—songwriter Monte (Phyllis’ nephew). Dire circumstances force the gang to do yet another show by Phyllis which results in a lyrical, melodious and absolutely lunatic catastrophe.

“I liked getting to meet other Gill Scouts and running around and stuff,” said Ashley Brannon of Troop 1098.
“I liked the crutches and meeting new friends,” said Stephanie Rhodes of Troop 530.
“I liked the ‘magic carpet,’ and staying up late, late, late,” added Jennifer Grier of Troop 330. “Also, it was very fun.”
Such positive comments from Girl Scouts are no doubt predictable wherever Girl Scouts gather. This time the setting was The Children’s Museum in New Braunfels, and what made the event special was the fact that the Girl Scouts had the whole museum to themselves for the museum’s first Girl Scout Camp-in.
Overnight camp-outs are a tradition in all kinds of scouting, but overnight camp-ins are a little unusual, especially when the campsites have such names as “Grandma’s Attic,” the “McKenna Children’s Hospitable,” the “C'MN-TV Studio,” and “Take Yourself Back.”
The girls did not seem to mind the lack of a real campfire or not having to douse themselves with insect repellent. They found plenty to do-- face-painting, dressing up, exploring every comer of the museum and staying up all night long. There was time for skits, snacks, scavenger hunts, and singing. And there was the excitement of rolling out bedrolls in unusual spaces, like inside the ambulance and behind the puppet theater.
There was also the usual camping tall tales, and at least one camper (who chose to comment anonymously) thought “telling ghost stories ‘til 2 o’clock in the morning " was the best experience of the event.
enjoyable evening a trip out the back door of the museum into Arby’s Roast Beef Restaurant for French toast and a tour of the kitchen; then it was into the cars for home, and, most likely, a nap, at least for the leaders.
The 5 troops who participated in the camp-in were members of troops in Lone Star Council Area ll. The council is made up of about 12,000 Girl Scouts from the region. Included in CMNB’s
tumty for girls to earn badges as a result of their participation.
“Our purpose for the girls is a really fun educational experience,” said Jocelyn Dochstader, program coordinator for the camp-in. “The evening is built around getting to know girls from other troops and learning something that they didn’t know before. It was fun; I hope a lot of girls get to take advantage of the opportunity.”
