Hallie Altwies, a third-grade student at Derynoski Elementary School in Southington, created the flower painting on canvas featured on the cover of this week's iTOWNS. The painting was done in Margery Chase's art class at Derynoski. Hallie has been drawing since she was able to hold a crayon and has had much practice while attending her siblings' sporting events. She currently takes drawing and painting lessons from a local artist. Her art always reflects her cheery and sunny attitude, according to her family.
