SANTA ANA, Calif. - A collection of watercolors featuring views of Crystal Cove by artist Emma Lane-Waterman will be featured at John Wayne Airport (JWA) as part of the Community Focus Program and will be on display January 26 through March 15, 2010.

"The most deeply rewarding results of my watercolors, besides the pleasure of creating and completing paintings, are the numerous friendships I have fostered with people who share my passion as an artist" says Lane-Waterman. Northern California artists" works are exhibited in Terminal A across from Gates 12-14 and Southern California artists are in Terminal B across from Gates 1-3.

Emma Lane-Waterman grew up in Oklahoma, but has lived and painted in the Southern California area for the past 37 years. Much of her subjects include the beauty of California landscape, as well as portraits and likenesses of animals. She enjoys working primarily with the quick and suggestive power of watercolor and has studied under several experts of the medium throughout her career, including Milford Zornes, Robert E. Wood, and Gerald Brommer. She has attended many workshops and traveled with her teachers to paint in France, Mexico, and Italy.

Lane-Waterman’s paintings will be displayed in the departure (upper) level near the security screening areas and on the arrival (lower) level near baggage carousels 1 and 4. To learn more about JWA’s Community Focus Space Program, visit
