July was a busy painting month

Triangle Artist Guild held the August monthly meeting last night. It was great to see those members who attended.   The summer as it seems, was busy for all of us.  Several members brought in new artwork to critique and several of us are catching our breath from our June and July whirlwind.

In June my painting "Flower Hill" was accepted in the NC Pastel Society Statewide Show.  That pastel painting (see below) was used as the basis for a larger oil that is now at Mahler Fine Art in Raleigh.

The month of July has vanished.  In addition to gathering pieces for the TAG show to be displayed at ChambersArt later in September, I am busy delivering new work to the Mahler Fine Art in Raleigh, SaxArt in Saxapahaw and at the Cary Gallery of Artists in Cary.  My week of plein air painting at the Cashiers Plein Air Festival was the highlight of July.  I painted along side of over 20 artists selected from across the country.  As you can imagine, with that many artists painting all day every day, over 100 paintings were completed that week.  The wet room, gala and quick draw were buzzing with new art being installed, admired and sold.  Thanks to all of the patrons and volunteers who helped out the cause - The Village Green in Cashiers, NC!

One of the popular places to paint in Cashiers was Camp Merrie-Woode for girls.  Merrie-Woode girls seem to have a blast forming life-long friendships over their summer at camp.
Attached is one my favorites from Merrie-Woode.  "The Arc" is the cabin where on their day off, the counselors get to have a little R & R.

"The Arc" is available at Misty Mountain Gallery (owned by David Berger in Cashiers. NC)

Ok, so this week of August is ushering in cooler temps it is time to return to the easel en plein air.  Have a great month, stop for a visit, call or check out my work at http://wendymusser.com

John Sweemer, Cary, NC Paintings

John Sweemer is painting a series of pieces with Cary themes.  This is his newest painting "A Moment on the Greenway" capturing a sunlit stream in Pirates Cove in Cary, NC. 

John is 90 years old, paints prolifically and walks four miles a day.  That's why he looks 70 in this picture.


E. Tracey Williams "Radiant Collection" June, 2012


Triangle Artist Guild Critique

Jane Hanck made this collage of mixed media using her own torn up watercolors.  The piece is a magical, whimsical wonderland inspired by the special life of Lindy Rex.  Jane says "Art can be fun!  Collage is like putting a puzzle together.
E. Tracy Williams is the collage expert of the Triangle Artist Guild and gives Jane her critique.

A Glorious Day at Prairie Ridge

Today was a "Glorious Day at Prairie Ridge" for more than one reason.  I joined 3 painting buddies to paint en plein air at Prairie Ridge in Raleigh.  If  you have not been there, it is a great eco system learning station with meandering trails through the prairie grasses.  Beyond the grasses and flowers you will find  open fields, trees and a small pond.

Any way, the weather was perfect.  We had a great time - sold my painting fresh off my easel and discovered a really good taco joint for lunch.  I don't know how it gets better than that.

Have a good week!
