Susan Palmer, Acrylic Paintings
The use of bright color in Susan’s abstract paintings will catch your eye first. Upon a closer look, you will experience how her painting makes you feel. Then you may wonder what the painting is really about. “There is usually much more going on than first meets the eye,” says Susan. “And that’’s the fun thing about art, after all . . . it’s all in the eye of the beholder!” Susan’’s motto is “Art That Makes You Happy”, and she hopes that her art will do that for you!
Bruce Boyce, Photography “
Fine art collectibles must first catch your eye, and then implant a lasting image in your brain so that each time you look at it you are pleased that you acquired it,” states Bruce. Bruce produces his beautiful landscape photographs of the Southwest with the explicit intent of generating those two reactions in his viewers. He does so through a combination of excellence in the standard photographic techniques of subject, lighting and composition, plus the added bonus of superior image quality through his mania for image sharpness, detail and realistic tonal rendition. The results are memorable images that have the impact and realism of the original scenes, each as if viewed through an open window on a clear day. Bruce will have a couple of cameras and his Questar telescope with him at the Collector’s ArtWalk. Bruce will also bring other samples of printed images to share that evening.
Amy Whitehouse, Acrylic Monoprints
“I am passionate about painting, says Amy. “I paint every day and love to share my artwork with others!”” Amy works in many artistic media — oil, acrylic, mixed media, pastel, and watercolor. ““I love to experiment by breaking the rules and painting intuitively,” says Amy. At the Collector’s ArtWalk, Amy will be showcasing her new, dynamic collection of acrylic monoprints.
