|Come Sail Away|
From the time Laura Kucharyson can remember, everything around her was a potential art piece. There was always an art project in progress, from using her dad’s socks, to making her sisters’ Ken doll clothes, to forming tiny pieces of paper into picture books, to mud being formed into candle holders.
At 12 years old, she was introduced to the world of oil painting under the instruction of a Colorado artist, Evelyn Adams. Her attention to detail and mastery of mixing colors remained with her even after her 22 year career choice as a music teacher. The experiences of living in the Rocky Mountains and enjoying the golden aspens in the autumn and the snowy wonderlands of the Colorado winters inspired many of the paintings in her collection. In 2006, her family moved to Florida, encouraged by several family members who have lived here for several years. The ocean has overtaken her imagination.
She began her new adventure as an artist by entering one of her pieces, Aspen Grove, in the Brush to Success in October of 2012. Under the instruction of Robert LeBron and the encouragement of many new artists friends around she became a member of the gallery at the end of January 2013. Of the future, she said, "One is never too old to learn and grow as an artist, and my plan is to continue taking classes under the instruction of artists such as Meiki Aton, an accomplished acrylic painter in the Melbourne area."
Presently, she has several paintings displayed at the Brevard Workforce and the Space Coast Cancer Center. Also,k she I has had pieces shared in the Indian River Gallery in Cocoa and am a member of the Brevard Cultural Alliance. Her prayer is that this new adventure never ends, and she will continue the learning process. Her journey has just begun, and she's looking forward to the many creations that await.
