Alvin is a published author of poetry and short stories. His most recent publication is in the Reader’s Digest magazine “Reminisce” April-May issue 2013 titled “Mother’s Day 1938”. http://www.reminisce.com/1930s/the-perfect-gift-for-mothers-day/. Here is an excerpt:
“Use this to buy your mother a gift for Mother’s Day,” my dad said as he handed me a dime. It was 1938, and I was 10 years old. Being the older of two boys, I took the mission seriously. I was going to find Mom a useful gift that showed her how much we loved, cherished and appreciated her….
Madeline Tully’s work in oil on canvas and watercolor reflect the sensibilities of color and light that have made her paintings so magical and inspiring. As a painter, Madeline succeeds in making watercolors the visual equal of oil painting. You can feel her love of natural settings and elegant flowers emanate from her richly colored paintings. Madeline’s formal training in art began at Washington Irving High School for Designing in New York City, followed by oil painting for 8 years at the Forest Park School of Art under Robert Burrell. Expanding her interest in art, She began classes in watercolor at the Jackson Heights Art School for 5 years with Bob Moffett. Madeline studied pastels using models with Dan Slapo in NY. Then upon relocating to Milford, PA, she had taken drawing classes with Alice Stolle, Len Gasp in Warwick and many other teachers throughout the years. She continues advanced training in watercolor with Matilda Gretch and has exhibited in Middletown Art League, Orange County Community College, Pike County Arts and Crafts, Golden Fish Gallery, Star Gallery, Hall of the Trotter in Goshen for classes in Mono. She is now active in River Valley Artist Guild, Sussex County Art Society, and with Matilda Gretch for watercolor, and Marie Lui for oils.
