I AM a Sensitive Artist

There is nothing as fun as making fun of artists. :)  But it’s like a brother – sister thing – it’s ONLY OK if you’re also an artist.  Or artsy enough to be deeply moved by art.

The first painting in a new series of work for my show…

The first painting in a new series of work for my show “Flora & Fauna” at Seattle’s Axis Gallery…..

Pioneer Square’s Axis Gallery presents “Flora & Fauna”, an exhibit bringing together three Seattle based artists whose exquisite attention to detail is apparent in depictions of the foliage like forms which weave throughout their wood panel compositions. From bats and delicate sea creatures to animal skulls and whale skeleton, Michelle Anderst, Joe Vollan and Ariel Wickham share a fascination for the dark and lushly intricate forms in nature.

Opening reception May 1st, 2014 from 5-9. Show runs through May 29th.

Final Views of the Convention and Point Lobos

                                                “From the Shores of Point Lobos”

I would like to add some final views and impressions about the Plein Air Convention that I attended last week and plein air painting at Point Lobos.  First, the Convention was inspiring and informative, and I look forward to participating next year. Because this Convention is an artistically rich educational and experiential event, I encourage all my painting students in The Grand View as well as viewers of our PBS show to attend next year’s 4th Annual Plein Air Convention, April 13-17, in Monterey, California.

This is the last of three plein air oil paintings that I painted during the convention. “From the Shores of Point Lobos” is a view of Point Lobos painted from a secure perch overlooking the Monterey Bay seen through trees that partially blocked my view. Point Lobos State Park is not usually open to groups of people painting on location, but this year they made an exception and opened it to our group of painters and allowed us to paint in this beautiful California State Park. For artists who like to search for secret places to paint, Point Lobos has hiking trails that follow the shoreline and lead to hidden coves and vistas with tree-lined headlands and rolling meadows that make ideal compositions.

Plein air and alla prima artist Stefan Baumann, host of the PBS painting series “The Grand View: America’s National Parks through the Eyes of an Artist” and author of “The Grand View: Observations Of Art and Nature,” travels in his vintage travel trailer painting America’s western landscape. Baumann paints outdoors with oils and canvas capturing stunning vistas, wildlife, western landscapes, National Parks and still life, thrilling art collectors throughout the world. He has many international collectors acquiring his paintings as investments. His painting style is called Romantic Realism with Luminism and he the extraordinary way he captures the effect of light is a truly an American Style used to paint the Western Landscape. He can be seen painting in Yellowstone, Yosemite and in the Grand Canyon. Baumann’s “how to paint” DVDs filmed on location in the National Parks are the very best on the market.
