Laura's Tea

by Carla Gauthier

"Painting from photos taken on a trip is a great way to revisit locations to remember the sights, sounds and smells. It's like taking a mental vacation while you paint."

Shopping in San Jose

by Les McDonald

"The colors of the merchandise, as well as their setup, captured my attention. When painting a scene like this one I always draw a detailed pencil rendering before painting. It was a labor of love"."

The Gifts from Him

by Keiko Yasouka

"The most difficult thing about this painting was the motif. The arrangement had so many angles that could have been the focal point. I utilize natural light and must wait until certain times of the day to achieve the proper hue from the sun as well as light directions and shadows."
