Betty Pollard's Paintings


Autumn Splendor

Betty says she painted this plate for an entry for an SOSPA show a few years back.  It is her original painting.  The theme for the show was "Autumn Splendor".  She had several fires on the plate, and on the last fire it broke in half in the kiln.
She glued it back with elmers glue and entered it anyway.  It won peoples' choice and was she surprised!  No one realized it was broken, and it is still on her shelf in her studio, with the ribbons on it.

Roses Tile

Betty says she painted these tiles for a student of hers for a new home they are building in Ashland.   It goes around her shower.   Betty says she stood up and it only took her 2 hrs to do the entire thing. Her student watched her the entire time, and loved it.

Enamel Scrolls with Gold

This plate is in the style of Fay Good. Betty says she got the idea from her work, but changed it quite a bit. She says she never copies, always changes a painting. She likes to work from the old Masters and from natural things (ie. flowers).
