Although nothing is more fulfilling to me that finishing a new painting, sometimes I just like to look at the creations of others. This afternoon I spent time on the Internet looking at pieces produced by artists that I admire and tomorrow I am going to a local art fest and see what is new this year. This art fest is a yearly juried event in my town and the booths will be manned by the creators of pottery, paintings, photographs, hand crafted jewelry, and I am anxious to see what else is on display. There is always something there that takes me by surprise: a new form of metal art, some new treatment for pottery, etc. I will share the experience of my attendance with you in a future blog and let you know what new art I discover this year.
I would like to share the web addresses of four of my favorite artists on the Internet. First is Marsha Robinette. Her watercolors are wonderful and her drawings exquisite. She is definitely a master of both mediums and the pieces she creates bring great pleasure to the viewer. You can see her works at http://.marsharobinette.com
. I don't know Marsha personally, however, she has helped me with problems I have encountered with my own web site.
The second is Max Hulse. He does wonderful, grand landscapes in oil. Max is definitely a master of his craft and his work is executed with great finesse as he creates scenes from Northern New Mexico and the Texas hill country. He has collected art, sold art, and created art. You can find Max at http://.maxhulse.com
The third artist I would like to introduce you to is Sharon Weaver. She is also an oil painter and my favorites of her paintings depict the gorgeous California Coast, which I fell in love with when I lived on the Monterey Peninsula. Her treatment of the ocean, beaches, and rugged rocks is delightful. Sharon also paints landscapes and architecture with a wonderful sensitivity. Her website is http://sharonweaver.com
And last, but not least, is my friend Patricia Elser. I have exhibited with Trish is a few shows and have enjoyed her happy, friendly personality. She paints watercolors that are vibrant and cheerful. Trish's subject matter includes portraiture, landscapes, and beautiful florals. Her work can be seen at http://www.patriciaelser.com
I hope you will take the time to visit the sites of these exceptional artists. Should you decide to do so, it will certainly be time well spent.
