Nancy Tipton Steensen's latest collection of watercolors will be featured from March 26 through April 20 at Lawrence Gallery near Sheridan. Steensen creates refreshing pieces with gentle washes of watercolor and lively pencil lines. In the loose brush strokes of her friendly and spontaneous paintings, it's as if she's telling a short story. She easily captures the mood of the moment--whether it is a young tot conversing with a favorite teddy or a teen showing off her new tennis racket or grooming a horse. Her graceful ballerinas come to life in a rich way at the dance bar.
