Local Arts scene: Jacques Barriac and Plein Air Painters

The Lotus, The Bird and the Butterfly” watercolor by Jacques Barriac.

I will start by honoring my friend Jacques Barriac who painted this award winning painting:  “The Lotus, the Bird and the Butterfly” in watercolor.  It won 2nd place at the Art of Flowers show going on through May at the El Paso International Museum of Art.  If you get the El Paso Times, look in yesterday’s art section or see here.

Also, the first page of that section is all about the Plein Air Painters show opening this coming Saturday, May 14th from 5-7 at the Sunland Art Gallery at the Placita Fe shops on Doniphan. The full page spread in the newspaper included paintings by Candy Mayer, Dorian Clouser, Krystyna Robbins and Judy Crumley.

I will have four paintings in that show, all painted outdoors, or in plein air.  Those of you that follow my blog will see that I made some changes to the last one with the mountain view.   If you click on the photo you will see a larger view of the painting.

From left to right they are:  Walk with Me, White Geranium, Spring Morning, and Balcony View.

I hope you can stop by and see the show and enjoy some wine and cheese with us this Saturday night.  Thanks for stopping by.  I enjoy hearing from you!
