In the artists own words:
"I am mostly self-taught and have studied art most of my life through college classes (Rio Hondo Community College), painting workshops, and private lessons. I have taken Plein Aire Watercolor Workshops in the High Sierras with Robert Reynolds (a Fine Arts Instructor at Cal Poly, SLO), and an oil painting workshop with Ron Chesley (a Fine Arts Instructor at The Art Center of Pasadena). I have studied with Watercolorist Pat Combs, and most recently with Alfred Tse."

'Pelican at Avila Beach' and others by Marty Wilson

by Robin Schroeder 24. August 2009 18:37
Marty Wilson's new watercolor paintings will transport you to a Southern California beach! She writes:
'A favorite pasttime of mine is walking on piers that jut out into the ocean at the very edge of the continent. On the pier near Avila Beach I came across this magnificent pelican, He was so stoic and unflappable and allowed me to get close and observe the deep colors, patterns and contrasts of his feathers.'

'Plum Blossoms' by Donna Larson

by Robin Schroeder 17. August 2009 00:40

Donna Larson's new work is stunning. This local artist has always been interested in all kinds of art and have been drawing and painting for as long as she can remember. She has a fine arts degree from Cal State Fullerton specializing in drawing and painting.

In her own words:

"The painting of the Plum Blossoms was inspired by a trip to Schabarum Park in Rowland Heights, Calif. There is a whole orchard of these beatuiful trees that were given to the park by Japan.  They bloom January thru Febuary each year.  I painted the image on chinese rice paper then mounted it on watercolor paper."

'Mystic Jungle' and others by Dennis McGonagle

by Robin Schroeder 6. August 2009 07:12
Dennis McGonagle has recently completes a new series of paintings featuring views of the Huntington Library Jungle Garden.
In the artist's own words:

"I have recently completed six landscapes featuring views of the Huntington Library Jungle Garden. Like Henri Rousseau, whose visits to the zoo and botanical gardens in Paris resulted in dreamlike scenes of tropical Mexico, my visits to the Huntington have inspired a series of images of a primeval world.

The paintings were painted on the site in the cool mornings before the Huntington opened its doors to the public. I employed optical blending and an expressionist palette in order to communicate the experience of painting by the singing waterfalls.

Mystic Jungle is the largest of the works and it features a close up view of the upper waterfall. In the center of the composition sits a large, green, moss-covered stone, the result of the endless shower from the cascading falls. Like some sort of water god, the stone exuded a mystical presence." Mystic Garden Bachante
