Please welcome back Rick Ross to the Spring Art Tour for 2021!

Oil & Cold Wax master painter Rick Ross writes: Nature is my subject matter, whether literally interpreted through landscapes and still life or abstractly represented by the textures and depth of oil and cold wax medium. Like the evolution of my life experiences, I love to explore and imagine the journey of objects and am inspired by history, age, and patina.

Musa writes on her site aileenmusaimages:
I was inspired to hand paint my photos by a hand painted black and white image of an English garden, by Wallace Nutting. It was a wedding gift to my grandparents in the early 1920’s. This image, my inspiration, now hangs in my home.

Please welcome Christine Echtner to the Spring Art Tour!

We are very excited to have Echtner join the Tour this year. Her intricate, clever, often hilarious mixed media pieces are a joy to behold.

And here is one of her recent “Smalls” titled ‘Roderick Finishes His Reading’

She writes: “My work is about storytelling. I use drawing, acrylic and mixed materials to develop my stories. I start out with a basic idea and, combining figures, line, texture, color and pattern, the story takes shape as I as I develop it on the canvas. With the title in place I encourage the viewer to participate, to expand on the idea and continue the story in a way that is meaningful to them.”
