        It’s snow joke

        Oxford was turned into a winter wonderland this week after an average of 8 inches of snow fell Sunday night and early Monday morning when a winter storm blew into north Mississippi.

        Throughout most of this past week, EAGLE photographer Bruce Newman captured Oxonians of all ages enjoying the rare gift from Mother Nature. Here he includes some of his photos that capture some of the community’s snow-covered landscape sans people. (January 14, 2011, Page 1B)

          Trees can make a landscape more beautiful

          Some homeowners are lucky and have their homes sited in areas where the trees seem to have been naturally placed. But for those of us who live in newer subdivisions, where all the trees were removed prior to development, we are challenged with incorporating trees back into our landscapes. Adding trees back will not only improve the appearance of a property but also increase its value. (January 7, 2011, Page 2B)

              Students lean illustration techniques during intersession

              During a wintersession illustration class at the University of Mississippi Wednesday, students watched as acting assistant art professor Katherine Rhodes Fields demonstrated how to transfer images using a variety of techniques.

              Dabbing wintergreen or clove oil on the back of a printed image and using a large wooden spoon, the students watched as Fields transferred a sketch, newspaper photograph and magazine pictures onto a plain piece of paper.

              The technique is often used to create collages, Fields said, or to allow artists to take an image from their sketch pad and transfer it to another media. (January 7, 2011, Page 1B)
