Decorative and Folk Artists recently experienced 6 days of learning and fun at the Creative Painting Convention in Las Vegas, NV, USA. Over 150 events and classes were offered to over 775 attendees. Jo Sonja Jansen, the inspiration behind Chroma’s Jo Sonja Artists’ Colours, taught a wonderful seminar, The Time Keeper’s Garden. This clock featured florals and the bluebird of happiness in bright and sunny colors and was the perfect harbinger of spring and summer!
When you think of New Orleans, often images of Mardi Gras or even Hurricane Katrina come to mind. However, New Orleans based artists Lory Lockwood and Adrian Deckbar are inspired by other images – engines and motorcycles and primeval nature. Although their subject matter differs, they share an obsession for detail and realism, as well as a love of Atelier Interactive Artists' Acrylics.
Australian artist Colley Whisson carries on the Impressionist tradition. His landscapes and interiors are known for their painterly approach with loose, bold brushwork, while still being representational. His books Creating Impressionist Landscapes in Oils and Impressionist Painting Made Easy , along with articles in International Artist and Australian Artist magazines, has increased his global audience. According to Whisson, Impressionism covers such a wide range of styles that it allows him to employ passages of realism or abstraction whenever he feels it's necessary or appropriate.
When I start a painting, I like to have a fairly good idea in my head or see what I am going to paint. I’m not one that can just start painting an empty canvas. (I envy those painters!) My starting vision is just that – a starting place – but sometimes what I imagined at the beginning is radically different from the final results. I’ve discovered that letting go, and being open and present during the process allows me to respond to what is happening. This sometimes takes me down an unexpected path, or in this case, down the proverbial rabbit hole.
John Walker is one of Australia's foremost landscape painters. His latest body of work was on exhibition at Utopia Gallery, Waterloo, Sydney from late October to mid November. In their media release for the show Utopia Gallery has written,
‘Winter in the Fire Forest is a body of work that can be tentatively traced to a discovery Walker made whilst painting at the edge of a mountain ash forest near Reidsdale, NSW about six years ago.
