  • Robin Welty is Rotary guest artist

    Special to The Trimble Banner

In fact, few sounds were apparent for the better part of 30 minutes except for low background recorded gospel music and the silent “swish” of Robin Welty’s art tools as she completed a full picture starting with just a blank, white paper. The full picture was not apparent until she turned on the black lights above and below the production at the end to reveal a quite inspiring work of art.
