Holiday Gift offer from the Gunnison Arts Center

Artwork is a gift that transcends “stuff.”  Artwork comes from the heART and spirit of an artist.

My work reflects my fascination and understanding of value and color.  I am fascinated by the relationship between light and shadow on natural forms, particularly horses andFullSizeRender flowers. I believe if you get the values and shapes correct, any beautiful color will look compelling, even a purple horse. I seek fresh, unexpected color mixtures through the spontaneity of wet paint mixing on wet paper. I strive for a sense of mystery and narration in each painting, allowing viewers to discover personal meanings in my work. As a retired art educator, I have taught the gamut of media, styles, and subjects, giving me the strong range I draw upon today when creating my watercolor and mixed media compositions.

This holiday season I am offering a special gift for collectors of my work.  Followers of smaCheri Isgreen Fine Art know that I travel extensively with my sketch materials, capturing my visits in pen, ink, and watercolor.  Based on the favorable response I have received from my travel sketches, I offer 8.5” x 6.5” oak-framed prints from my travels.  I’d like to offer you the opportunity to own one of my travel prints. 

Purchase a framed painting this holiday season from the Gunnison Arts Center or from the gallery pages of this site and receive a complimentary framed travel print.  Prints range from travel in Mexico, Utah Canyonlands, Texas Hill Country, and colorful Colorado.  Visit the Gunnison Arts Center at 102 South Main Street, Gunnison, Colorado 81230, or click on the following link  ONLINE GALLERY.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

It’s been a busy December between art shows and workshops.  I have been focusing on holiday and winter themes while creating artwork and developing demos for my workshops.   Most recently we created holiday cards from small watercolors.  For those of you who have been following my blog and Facebook, here is the teaser I posted for the workshop, along with the completed painting, and a second painting with a slightly different composition, grouping a single ornament next to two ornaments
