Focus on The Masters With Ms. Donna Granata


End of the sitting, a great meeting of the art spirit! Read Donna's Story This Week in The Ventura Breeze
I was so looking forward to painting Ms. Donna Granata for my FACE OF VENTURA PROJECT. I had heard so much about her and her impressive work. She is an extraordinary portraitist in her own right. Highly intelligent and one class act. Ms. Granata also founded FOCUS ON THE MASTERS here an impressive ongoing archival project to record the lives of many extraordinary artists and their work in the county of Ventura. I attended a TV taping of Donna's interview a couple of years ago with David Leffel for said FOCUS and was very moved by her interview of this great man.

Plus, Donna also has a great face to paint.

It was a lovely meeting of the art spirit and mind.


MY FACE OF VENTURA PROECT is kindly featured in The Ventura Breeze every issue and I am excited that each sitter will now be appearing on The Lyn Fairly Show, "Lyn Fairly and Friends" Saturdays at noon. KVTA News Talk Radio 1520 AM . Please listen in...

Thank you Lyn and Sheldon Brown of The Breeze!

Another masterful work, Johanna! I once had the pleasure of meeting Donna on Ventura Ave. in front of an art studio, and recall that it was an interesting and enjoyable conversation.
