While living in Ozello, Phyllis once said "Deciding what to paint has never
been a concern for me because I am surrounded by more than I will be able to
use. I feel that my subjects choose me rather than my choosing them.
Objects and places that I have taken for granted as part of my immediate
environment of daily routine take on a new meaning when I least expect it.
When something captures my imagination, it's like a seed planted in my mind
that develops gradually until the painting takes form".
Phyllis was right. Don't take Ozello for granted. There is nowhere else like it. Below are just a few samples of Phyllis's many works of art. A special "thank you" to Phyllis's husband Bob for sharing these memories with us all. Enjoy!
