“An artist’s muse is a ‘Window to the World’ making us see it in a broader sense. The sea is my muse, that window for me. I return each year to the West coast of Oregon, to the Keys of Florida and the China Sea of Okinawa, Japan to find inspiration and ‘See’ the world through a wider lens. Each of the new works in my show reflect my new way of seeing.
Paul Klee said, ‘Art does not reproduce what we see, it makes us see.’”

Upcoming Oil Painting Workshops with Chris Brandley

Grand_Finale_in_Venice_Chris_Brandley_web

Coming in July and September (Keller and Grapevine, Texas):

Chris’s workshops include step by step demonstrations, one on one individual easel time, and fun exercises to learn how to loosen up and create bold, colorful paintings. She holds nothing back, and talks through the process and colors during the demo! Chris uses the “Alla Prima” method of painting (working wet into wet) and will teach you how to layer with transparent and opaque oils, and how to keep your paints from getting muddy. She will show you how to take an ordinary photograph, and use artistic license to paint from the heart by infusing clean, bold color, loose brush strokes, and beautiful lighting. There will be an emphasis on color mixing, composition, brushwork, and more. Learn to see “Impressionistically,” and explore your ability to “suggest” rather than “render” the subject. Come prepared to have a relaxing, fun-filled learning experience. This class is for all levels of painting from beginners to advanced!

“Spatial Planes Are Implied” by Donna Park at Gidden Gallery

spacialplanes

“Spatial Planes Are Implied” by Donna Park
“In recent work there have been layers of horizontal, vertical and diagonals using transparent washes with gradation in color to add depth to the color field. Spatial planes are implied with the lines. The use of line, value and impasto in the composition makes it appear three dimensional. These add textural variations with hard edges that are unpredictable emerging through the surface.”

Deep in the HeART of Texas Art Tour: Gaylord Texan call for artists

Gaylordcall2017

My name is Davi Hecht and I am a Special Events Coordinator at Gaylord Texan Resort and Hotel in Grapevine, TX. I’m reaching out to you today in regard to our yearly summer events we host at the property.  This year we will again be featuring an Atrium Art Walk throughout our resort.  This Art Walk will feature works of art from local and regional Texas artists.  We would like to include works that are loosely based on or could work in conjunction with our summer theme of Texas/Americana. Gaylord Texan is calling this event “Deep in the HeART of Texas Art Tour” We will showcase up to 20 artists in our resort with these pieces being on display from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.  Each display will include a bio, photo, and contact information for the artist.  We expect 300,000 visitors over the course of the summer so each piece of art will receive great exposure in addition to adding value to our beautiful property.

In appreciation for participating, each artist will receive a complimentary one night stay as well as dinner for two at the resort.  This will allow each artist to experience our summer festivities and accompanying Art Walk as our guest.

Let’s Paint Italy! Oil Painting Workshop in Grapevine, Texas

workshop-ad-for-jan-2017

January 27 & 28, 2017

Chris Brandley

Join me for this fun, 2 day workshop where we will paint Impressionistically in the Alla Prima (wet into wet) style. I will teach you how to layer with transparent and opaque oils, and how to keep your paints from getting muddy. We will work on technique, color mixing, composition, light, and looser brush strokes. Students will learn to see “Impressionistically” and explore to ability to “suggest” rather than “render” the subject. *Gift certificates are available on my website if you’d like to give someone special something they won’t forget! Click here for more information and to register.
