Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Nov. 26, 2014 5B mmunl Li Mohawk Community Resource Center Special to Feather Publishing Lizz Coates' business card says "Art from the Heart," and "Will Paint to Order." Her high-quality artwork is colorful and detailed, and Coates will literally paint on anything. Her medium is acrylic paint but it is not applied to the traditional stretched canvas. Car doors, plow discs and pottery shards are just a few of the items that she's resurrected into works of art. Her subjects also vary widely. The car door exhibits a nature scene, the plow disc a snowflake design, and the pottery shards Egyptian themes. The objects she chooses to work with often suggest the theme. Some of her other works are an antique stove top plate with a painting of an owl and an old pressure cooker displaying a rooster. Refinishing and painting old skis is one of her favorite projects. Coates is the featured artist at the upcoming Mohawk Community Art Fairy. The Mohawk Community Resource Center presents the newly reorganized fairy during Thanksgiving weekend at the Graeagle Fire Hall. Coates is a longtime resident of Portola and started painting seriously about six years ago. She loves to take common objects and "repurpose" them by decorating them with beautiful artwork. This is her first craft fairy but some of her work can currently be seen at River Bend Video in Portola. Her husband does restoration work on cars and Coates finds inspiration in patterns from nature, as in this painting of an owl, Photos by Linda Cooley after painting. Garage sales are another source of unusual objects for Coates to paint. Her studio is a compact 8 by 12 feet, filled with art objects, paints, inks and several old skis decorated with winter scenes. Coates will paint to order, so if you have a favorite item that can use some fine art, talk to her at the Mohawk Community Art Fairy Thanksgivingweekend. Formerly hosted by the metal and wood works, paintings, knit and crochet items, photography, crafts and much more. Many pieces will make perfect gift items for the upcoming holidays.
