Your community news and information source Lisa-Marie Greenly Greenly, who heard about the competition through her membership in various artists’ groups, had no trouble deciding what to draw. She chose Mears Park. “It’s just a little piece of wonderful, right there in the middle of Lowertown,” she said. Greenly, 48, enjoys being around nature so she walks through different parts of the park each day on her way to the St. Paul Neighborhood Network, where she works in the control

room making sure television programs get on the air as scheduled. “Mears Park is restful to me,” she said. “I’m drawn to it, listening to the quiet water. And then there’re the music events, which are just the opposite, so you can go there and get something dynamic or something peaceful.” Her next decision was finding the right part of the park to sketch. “I walked into it and used an artist’s eye to see what

would make a good composition,” she said. “I was trying to find what spoke to me and I found one sweet spot.” Greenly took several photographs of the water near the southwest corner of the park and worked from them to create her art. “The sketch was almost easy,” she said. “It only took me about an hour. It just flowed out.” She sent her sketch to Springboard and said she was on pins and needles

waiting for them to respond. “When I learned I was one of the four selected then I was just dancing around,” she said with a hearty laugh.
