M The Times-Reporter ** *t fhnrs., Dec. 24, Itffl 'colors' her holidays By MRS. 1SABELLE C1IANEY Staff Correspondent CADIZ — Mrs. Helen DeCorte of Lincoln av. is adding to the joys of the Christmas season with her talent and love for painting. The attractive woman is presenting to a husband a por. trait she painted of his wife and a landscape picture to the Harrison County Home. Mrs. DeCorte usually paints without making a sketch, but because she wanted a painting for her daughter, Jana, 20, to be exceptionally nice, she sketched with a pencil. The sketching took seven hours and the painting, 47 hours. Helen began painting about 10 years ago and said she paints because she enjoys it and when she is painting she forgets everything else. She laughed as she said that sometimes she has become so absorbed in her painting that she is surprised to find that she has painted all night. She has painted "Spanish Girl," "Burma Girl," "Sunspot," and many other pictures including the seven levels of Zen on black velvet, Mrs. DeCorte has never had any lessons in painting except for portraits and for that she took a twelve week course at a branch college near St. Glairs- ville. Her paintings have been exhibited at the Cadiz Mining and Mfg. Festival, Harrison County fair and Village Toggery at Helen DeCorte adds the finishing touches to a picture she Health, wealth, and happiness! Dover Precast Concrete Co.
