Eloise Ryan enjoys painting, wants to teach others


Eloise Ryan, of Pine River, took on art at age 10, when she imitated paintings from her father’s hunting magazines, freehand with a pencil.

She has two drawings that she’s saved, and while they don’t show the same accuracy as her watercolor paintings do today, the attention to detail at age 10 certainly made them something to save for decades.
