Mesa Arts Center


We were able to see the Best of AZ Watercolor Association show the other day at the Mesa Contemporary Arts Center. A beautiful Art Center with many show rooms, studios and a store for its members to show & sell their work. The Watercolor was wonderful at the show, I recognized only one of the artist's name but am sure the other artist are well know too. Betsy Dillard Stroud had just given a workshop in Lubbock that many of my friends were able to take & many years ago I was able to take one of her mini workshops at a trade show in Houston. I was also familiar with her work because of the publications she has been in. We were able to see her Painting "Cosmic Cowgirl," it was an acrylic , collage & watercolor painting. It was also stamped as all her neat pantings are. We enjoyed all the show & saw some more fabulous paintings there.

This is a still life painted in acrylic on canvas. Several still lives were set up & we had a choice of what to paint. I liked this warm colorful one & had lots of fun painting it. Kindly helps to warm up the room & make us dream of warm sunny days. Purple flowers behind help pop out the yellow of the sunflowers

Snow Show Linda Rupard

This is a Christmas card with some of that white rain that is so pretty & so needed in TX. I guess TX got the Christmas Snow early. Used an imaginary scene of the Southwest because that is one of my very favorite places to be.

Starry Night after Van Gogh





I took a couple hours workshop with Willard Coe. We each did our version of Van Gogh's Starry Night. Only got 3 photos because camera was acting up. I think Starry Night is my favorite painting of all paintings. Just imagine what he could have done if he could have lived longer. He died at a young age & wasn't a painter all his life. So wonderful that we are able to see his master pieces. The single painting is mine. The teacher standing by one of the paintings we were using for reference.
