Painting Styles

I'd like to introduce you to some artists who may have a painting style you haven't seen before. So many wonderful artists are self-taught, and don't make traditional landscapes, still lives, portraits, or other more formal styles. These artists practice what I would call a whimsical, springtime style. The colors are vibrant, not dark. The subject matter might be animals or character/people. I "met" each of these artists when we took an online class together. I'm now a follower of their blogs and their art.

First, I'd like to introduce you to Jenni Adkins Horne. I posted an interview on my blog that you can see in Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. She resides in Georgia, and is quite prolific with her art, making paintings, jewelry, and accessories. She often shows her work at art shows and galleries.

Nic Hohn is an artist in Australia who paints beautiful pictures of women, and has branched out into greeting cards. You can see her blog here.

Juliette Crane lives in Wisconsin, where she is very busy painting owls. She even has a "How to Paint an Owl Workshop" that you can see the details of on her blog.

I hope you take the time to visit these artists' blogs, and leave them a note that you dropped by. Are there any painters that you know from visiting blogs that you'd like to tell us about?
