OCTOBER 2017 - FIRST FRIDAY- ABBY ANDRE

I am in awe of the world around me: both our own power and the undeniable strength of the natural world. Art is my mirror for what I see and I use it to help me understand how we interact with our surroundings.

Most of my work focuses on nature, how we push it and how it pushes back. My home in Denver Colorado represents the relationship between man and the physical world acutely: how do we move into the mountains, the sea and the sky without invading it?

I work primarily in acrylic and pencil, and in addition to the pieces available through the salon, I do commissions and can discuss larger scale prints and originals on a case by case basis. For more information, please email me at abby@abbyandre.com, visit abbyandre.com and follow me on instagram at https://www.instagram.com/s titchoflightning/.

MAY 2016 FIRST FRIDAY JANET NUNN

 

About the Artist

The bright color and blending Janet uses, creates detail and feeling in her paintings.   Capturing the Colorado landscape is one of her favorite compositions.  There is so much to paint in Colorado from changing colors, varied landscape and the great people.  Janet uses a paint made in Colorado, Dr. Ph. Martin’s Hydrus Liquid Watercolors.  This paint keeps the brightness and consistency in the paintings. Janet’s paintings will be featured in Watercolor Artist in the February 2014 magazine. The books Splash 14 and 16 have paintings by Janet.  And recently in the Spring issue of Rocky Mountain Gardening.

As an instructor, Janet enjoys teaching in a positive way. Guiding students to uncover their own style of painting while they learn many watercolor techniques.  You can follow one of her lessons online at:

JUNE 2016 FIRST FRIDAY – BERNIE CONNELLY - CHARL HARDESTY  

Bernadine Connelly was born in Trinidad, Colorado, and has lived in Golden, Colorado since 1978.  Her passions include water coloring, gardening, hiking, and enjoying the beauty of the outdoors.  Five years ago she began studying painting with Janet Nunn, which awoke a "sleeping giant."  During these formative years, Bernadine refined the art of mixing colors and developed her own unique style of painting.  Her skills have been sharpened over the years by painting many different types of subjects, including family members, pets, flowers and other natural settings. Painting has enhanced her ability to relish the moment, and live in peace and harmony.  As she would joyfully say, "Painting is simply fun, fun, fun!"

 

 

Charl Hardesty

As a retired lawyer, with kids grown and gone, I stumbled across some watercolor paintings in a frame shop that was being used as a classroom by a watercolor artist.  I could feel my heart beating a little harder and some excitement building. I contacted that teacher, about 5 years ago now, and that was the beginning! I was a true beginner and dabbled off and on, in between traveling for a long time.

I have no art education or formal training in art. As I said, my left-brain had been in charge. I searched out and found more teachers and artists via workshops and regular classes at various places around the Denver area.  I find that hours can go by while I'm painting without my noticing. It fully absorbs my mind and serves as a form of meditation for me, as well as a creative outlet. I truly paint for enjoyment, not for profession, and have to keep reminding myself of that as my inner critic starts to rear its ugly head.

I hope something in one of my paintings brings you joy, inspiration, a happy memory, or just touches your heart with beauty.
