StembergerCity Arts Spotlight Artist June 2021
“From what lineage is the artist born? Social class and status story of the painter, an artist finds freedom in open air. While easel painting on location the elements become teachers. Drawing foundations in charcoal and ballpoint transferring to brushwork as the curriculum expands expands oil over acrylic.
Leaf rubbings and almanac drawing books. Classes of four drawing palm trees in the parks drinking bottled water and weighting down field easels with sketchbooks. The future more relevant than past kneaded erasers and pink pearls, supply lists line the walls of the mind, muscles summon characters training the eye, the heart and the hand through the tradition of the Impressionist.”
