LOCAL MESA ARTISTS PRODUCING CHARCOAL, OIL, PASTELS, AND WATER COLOR PAINTINGS
I don’t normally post this type of thing, but I was so pleased with this oil painting a local artist created from an old black and white photo of my mother and me. I met him at the Red Mountain Multi-Generational Center in Mesa where they have a fantastic group of artists working from live models. They are at all skill levels and encourage one another in their efforts. I knew Mesa boasted many talented writers but had no idea there are also amazing painters in our midst! If you’d like to sit for them, they meet Friday mornings from 9 to 11 a.m. They even pay the models a nominal fee.
