Gary Moskowitz After he saw John Wayne in "The Alamo" when he was about 8, John Pomeroy was hooked on war stories. He constructed an entire scene of the Alamo out of clay as soon as he got home, complete with the mission setting and handfuls of soldiers.

In her oil paintings, artist Karen Sill tries to perk up the canvas with color, whether she’s painting a whole garden or just one or two flowers. This week, the La Crescenta resident is working on something new. She’s painting the master bedroom suite of the Frank Lanterman House in La Cañada Flintridge. She hopes to finish it in time to display it in the Foothill Artists League Show there on Sunday. “This is my first interior,” she said. “And I’m enjoying trying something new. When we took a tour of the house and saw the master suite, I couldn’t resist and thought I’d give it a try.” Sill has a love for interior design, and when she saw the space, she said, it looked like a peaceful, restful place to read a book.

Pictures of people and buildings often intrigue oil painter Walter Hurlburt, who applies his own spin to them with his brush and brilliant colors. A photograph of a woman wearing a black hat in a newspaper ad for instance caught his eye. So he created a painting based on it, but he changed her hat to reddish orange and brought out the blue in her eyes by painting her blouse a vivid turquoise. “One little thing you change and it adds just enough to make it different,” he said.
