I’ve blogged before about my friend Jacques Barriac who taught me the matting/framing process. He runs the informal transparent watercolor group in El Paso, and does a fantastic job finding teachers and videos from which we learn. He has been painting for five years, and does precise excellent work! I’ve been wanting to put up some of his beautiful paintings for awhile.

The first two were accepted into the Arts International show this coming Saturday, October 3rd and running through the month of October.   This is the signature event of the Art Association and includes 68 works selected from 145 submitted.  The gala opening is this Saturday from 6-9 pm at the Art Junction, 500 W. Paisano (near the baseball stadium).  The show runs through October, open Tues-Fri 11-4, and Saturdays 11-3.So please come down and check out the show!

Jacques will also be participating in the Members show in November, also at the Art Junction, where he will have a good number of beautiful watercolors for sale.

If you would like to send him comments on his work, he can be reached at 3012jacques@gmail.com
