Longview, Texas. The Longview News-Journal Sunday Lifestyle edition featured Debra Wadlington in a full-page interview on Sunday, August 16.
Online PR News – 22-August-2020 – Longview, Texas – Lifestyle Features Editor Sherry Shephard interviewed Debra Wadlington about her relocation to the Piney Woods community of Holly Lake Ranch. Under the heading of “East Texas artist’s love of color, movement reflected in online gallery,” journalist Shephard focused on Wadlington’s childhood in her native New Mexico and how her growing-up years influenced her love of dancers and passion for painting them.
The Longview News-Journal sent along a photographer who captured the artist in her studio where numerous paintings decorate the walls. Unlike other entertainment interviews that Wadlington was featured in, this time the newspaper was generous in taking photos for the interview. The published result was a photographic display of many pieces of art never seen before, including paintings and sketches of the artist’s favorite subjects, her adult daughter Sandra and granddaughter Haley. Journalist Shephard noted that recently Debra Wadlington has had to take a break from painting to focus on the development of her online gallery, at http://www.DebraWadlingtonArt.blogspot.com
