SUBMITTED PHOTO - Teena Wood is showing her colorful art during the month of April at Trainers Club, 333 S. State St. An artists reception will be held today from 5:30-7:30 p.m. My art reflects the simple beauty of everyday situations, said Wood. I have always been interested in the magic and richness of color. I love to bring out the whimsy and heart of a subject, whether it be a scene or someones pet. Formerly a published cartoonist, Wood says the comics were the genesis of her whimsical side.
