Next Meeting Thursday,January 25
Public is welcome. Cost for Non-members is $5.00. Meetings are on the 4th Thursday of the month most of the year. Check for specific dated on the Meetings Page.
The program for the January Meeting will be a demo by watercolor artist George Zien.
Art is a form of communication. Although I tend to be a realist, I like a bit of mystery in my paintings. Most everything we see is art, and I find satisfaction using watercolors and paper to record images that are appealing. Lights, and especially shadows are intriguing and add dimension to my efforts. Changes in my style are welcome as I evolve as an artist.
For thirty years, George operated his own Sign and Screen Printing business in Arizona where his artistic talents were useful. He experimented with oil painting but was not able to devote quality time to this until his retirement to Sequim in 2001, then he began studying watercolor painting.
His originals are included in private and public collections throughout the country. Commissioned portraits of people and animals have occupied a great deal of his time but he also enjoys painting structures as well as landscapes.
His demo for OPAA will be his process in completing the process for his portraits.
