Marilene Sawaf - "The stain glass effect I use is inspired from my love for stain glass. In 1976 my family fled from the civil war in Lebanon, and we lived for a year in my grandmother's mansion in Alexandria, Egypt. An entire wall which was visible upon entering the house, was made of stain glass. In my paintings I continually recapture that ethereal vision." Marilene is a member of Boston's prestigious Copley Society. Read more about Marilene and her work at and read her blog at

Peggy Jungbluth -"After retiring four years ago I decided to try my hand at painting. The Westford Senior Center was giving a free lesson so that was my starting point with a wonderful teacher, Marie Stabile. Since then I have taken classes with Steve Previte of Nashua and Paula Mingolelli of Tyngsboro. To be invited into this artistic world has been an exciting adventure -to recreate landscapes in oil and to learn different techniques. Drawing is an ongoing reward for me at this time in my life, and the Nashua Breakfast Club has played a big part in encouraging my learning experiences in this fascinating new world of Art."
