Member Tribute

Maxine James

 

Maxine James was so envious of her friend at James Whitcomb Riley High School in South Bend, Indiana, who could sketch anything he could see, while her only piece of art was a career book, the work of a wannabe costume designer. Maxine went to work as secretary/treasurer of an engineering company and school, where her bosses let her enroll in the school to become the first lady tool and die designer. Her designs with straight-edge, pencil and large sheets of paper were a subject of wonder.

 

But marriage and pregnancy ended that dream.  Maxine's three children are a great souree of pride, Her daughter is a teacher with the Deer Valley School District. both sons became engineers.  One son is into Phoenix cell towers, the other son is an airplane designer for Goodrich and Boeing. Her art was on hold until the family moved to Phoenix, where her first classes were with Garnette Widdifield and Ruth Palmisano at the Washington Adult Center.

 Upon retirement,  Maxine's husband acquired a motor home allowing her to sketch the USA. Every time the coach stopped she would set up to paint.  It was glorious fun, and netted her fruit, vegetables and fresh fish from admiring on-lookers.  Her favorite was a 10-inch flounder from one who watched her paint the Bayou in Biloxi, Mississippi.  She said, "Best fish I ever tasted."  

 Next came a workshop, "Phoebe's Watercolor Portrait School" in New Hampshire, then to Mexico, Hawaii, and Switzerland.   She has taken classes at Scottsdale Artists School.   But she says the best of all is Painters' Playhouse at her house every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning from 9 to noon with fellow artists finding life and "what it's all about-BEAUTIFUL and something new every day."
