JANUARY DEMO ARTIST for Ellis County Art Association

FRANCYS FLANAGAN

 

We’re excited and honored to have our friend & a popular demo artist, Francys Flanagan as our demonstration guest for January.

Artist’s Statement:

“Words, strung like pearls on a page paint a picture. Music tells the soul a story. Colours and shapes on a canvas make the heart sing. Three doors into a magical and lovely place that God’s gift, imagination, allows us to enter. As a child I strolled at will through these doors and lived in that place. As I “grew up”, I never left it.

In 1977 God gave me another gift in the person of artist Dick Turner. Dick gave a fortunate few the tools needed in order to use paint and canvas to take others into that world of beauty and peace. A world that might catch at your imagination and cause you to ask, “What if…..”

From the time I was a small girl I knew I would be an artist. I just didn’t know what kind. I read book after book about painters, musicians, dancers, and writers. Then in 1977, through the chance meeting with artist Dick Turner, I knew that I too would be a painter.

I immersed myself, soul and body, in that pursuit. I studied with Dick from 1977 until 1982, taking 5 and 6 classes a week at his private art school in Houston.
I have also received instruction from William Reese, William Henry Earle, Carolyn Anderson, Greg Kreutz, Roberta Carter Clark, Ray Vinella, Jean Chambers, Scott Burdick and Daniel Greene.”

Francys is not only a superb oil painter and teacher…she’s an absolute joy to watch! Please Join us as we welcome her to ART on the Square!

No matter what the subject matter is, it’s that fleeting moment in time and the particular feeling of the light that I strive most to capture in my paintings.  I want the viewer to feel as though they are experiencing that moment in time.  My goal is to capture the truth about the subject without over embellishment of color or too many unimportant details that can distract the eye from the main idea. The light.”  http://brucepeilart.com/
