Meet Texas Artist Ann Hoffpauir

Ann Hoffpauir is a full-time artist from Orange, Texas where she lives.  Ms. Hoffpauir paints in a contemporary realistic style.  Major themes in her work in addition to her depiction of the landscape include animals, with an interaction with nature.  Her painting style blends with a love of nature and its forms, floral displays, animals and people, with brilliant lights and strong darks.   Ms. Hoffpauir finds the spontaneous qualities of watercolors lend it

very well to a fresh painterly approach, appearing effortless.  The same can be said for her oil paintings.  Those qualities show along with her confident and enthusiastic brushwork.  It’s not just the brushwork or color, but the painting as a whole, must engage the viewer.  The painting should convey

a sense of mystery and beauty.  She has taught at many local organizations and private schools and has conducted several workshops and teaches weekly art classes at her home studio. Ann has been featured in Western Art Collector, Southwest Art and Art of the West magazines. She was featured in Western Art Collector’s – Art of the Horse 2011.   For more information she may be contacted at 409-745-2473 or email her at ahoffpauir26@yahoo.com.

Ann is a Signature Member of the Artists of Texas.

Meet Texas Artist June Holloway

I was born in England where I received a University of London degree in Art. I have been painting and drawing all my life and at the age of  twelve  I received a beautiful box of oil paints. When I became the mother of twin boys my oil painting was curtailed, little boys and oil paints do not mix. My local art supply clerk suggested that I switch to pastels it was love at first sight. At the age of thirty five I moved with my three sons to America I carried one suitcase containing my cloths, and a backpack containing all my art supplies. We settled in Wichita Kansas and I found a wonderful art community there, I joined many of the art groups and I continued my art career. I am a portrait and still life artist and I have had portrait commissions in England, America and Guatemala. My work has won awards in national competitions in Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado and Texas. Although I have worked in all mediums my favorites are still pastel and graphite pencil. I am now at a point in my life when I can do what pleases me.  I love to paint and I love to pass on the knowledge that I have garnered through the years. I now have about thirty students who share my passion for painting. My hopes for the future is that I can continue to paint and draw and that my paintings will be enjoyed by my clients and my viewers for many years  to come.

Meet Texas Artist Rae Andrea

I am an Australian ex-pat, and after living on the Hawaiian island of Maui for 12 years, moved to mainland USA 10 years ago. I teach art and conduct workshops and demonstrations in many parts of the States and Australia. 

In the 1990's I began a 400 student art school in Australia and when I lived in Hawaii owned two art galleries on Maui. I paint in every medium, and can really say there are no favorites for me, I see what the subject dictates and off I go. 
Water and movement are constant themes in my work and I LOVE color.   Rae Andrews

Oh Happy Day!

Contemporary Palette Knife Painting

Floral Still Life

18" x 36" Oil on Heavy Duty Gallery Wrap Canvas

I can honestly say that this painting was painted from the heart.  It wasn't hard to paint.  It didn't take long.  It just came out of me.  And it makes me smile,  just as our family news on Sunday.  I wanted to paint something beautiful and lasting....so I went through my reference photos decided on a still life, and picked out a limited color palette of grays, greens and violets.  And just let it go.  The paint is applied with the knife and is really thick and textured.  This painting is drying at the studio.  Contact Kay Wyne for information on this painting.  Thanks for looking at this blog.

When the sun came out last Friday, and the temperature was headed for the eighties, I headed out to the creek to look for painting subjects.  I was hoping maybe to find a dramatic stand of sycamore and boulders on the bank of the clear green water, and I did.  But this humble subject caught my eye when I got there, and I couldn't forget how striking it looked.  So, this is the subject I selected to paint.  Interpreting this scene was fun from beginning to end, and a good lesson, too.  Striking beauty is not limited to only the big dramatic subject matter.  If our eyes are open to the patterns of light and dark, when we're out, we find things that we would never have conceived if we remain in the studio.

Meet Texas Artist Mark Malone

Mark Malone is a native Texan. A former country boy, he now resides in the big city of Dallas.. He became interested in pursuing art many years ago and after several years of study decided to make it his career choice. The inspiration for his work is quite varied. He loves the incomparable beauty of New Mexico and frequently travels there to gather material for his landscapes. Still life, abstracts, florals and wildlife are also represented in his work. He is constantly challenging himself to break out of his comfort zone and his work reflects this in a variety of styles and techniques. He is best known for his bold use of color and often tries to give his paintings a sense of “movement”. He loves to use palette knives and thick rich impasto to provide texture to his canvasses. He views art as a constant evolutionary process and says he cannot imagine doing anything else.

Meet Texas Artist Russell Mackensen

 

Having worked as an Architect for over 40 years I produced a lot of drawings and renderings of projects, but was not involved in fine art. Yet I have been "seeing" projects in lights and darks, composition, texture, movement and color.  All these elements of architecture are the same ones that artists apply to their works.  So in a sense I have been producing "Art" by taking 3 dimensional ideas and translating them to 2 dimensional drawings. The only difference is that those drawings are then used to create the 3 dimensional work.

Upon the urging of my wife over the last 30 years saying "you could do that" when we were looking at art, I decided to try Oil Pastels in October of 2009.  It felt like a natural medium for me to work with as I was able to get what my mind was seeing onto the ground I was working on. I soon discovered that this was a medium not too well known or understood. It is the application of pure pigment in stick form, similar to Dry Pastels.  For a more complete understanding please visit the Oil Pastel Society.

I have been honored as a Signature member of the Oil Pastel Society, and am a juried member of The International Guild of Realism, Oil Painters of America, Faith Artists and The Artists of Texas.

In my life and my art I strive to give praise to the Creator of all. I believe that as a Christian everything I do is summed up by the scripture:

"For From Him and Through Him and To Him are all things.

To Him be the Glory Forever. Amen"  

Romans 11: 36

Meet Texas Artist Shirley Quaid

 

Shirley Quaid's art career started after she had raised her family but she is making up for lost time by painting every day. A viewer once said of her work that the soul was evident in the figurative as well as the landscape paintings. What a wonderful thing to hear!

She connects with her subjects on an emotional level as her heart strings are tugged by the beauty of the human spirit as well as our beautiful Earth.

 Every new painting offers challenges to work through as edges are softened, colors are selected and the thickness of the paint is applied with brush and knife to create an evocative response from the viewer.

Her paintings have garnered numerous awards from the very beginning and have been collected throughout the United States.

She maintains a studio in Humble, TX and is represented by The Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, TX and is a Signature Member of the Artists of Texas.

Meet Texas Artist Gaye Sekula

Painting is a deeply spiritual thing for me. Much like meditation, it is being present and keenly aware, but at the same time, letting go and trusting in all you have learned thus far. Many artists have tried to describe  it with phrases such as -"following the muse", "feeling the hand of God on yours", or "being in the flow".  Regardless, it is really something undefinable, yet undeniable. I feel the following quote sums it up quite well: “We lose ourselves in the things we love. We find ourselves there, too.”

Artist's Bio:
Gaye Sekula’s paintings are reflective of the artist herself;  passionate, spontaneous and expressive.  She finds great inspiration in trying to capture the wonder of the fleeting moment and finds the most joy in painting “alla prima”. It is her belief that emotion and liveliness are best captured in spontaneous simplicity.

She has studied under such masters as Carolyn Anderson, William Schneider, Henry Yan, Jeff Watts and Zhaoming Wu. She has also been greatly influenced by Richard Schmid, Tibor Nagy, and Nicolai Fechin.

Gaye was born in San Antonio, Texas. After several years living abroad, she and her husband returned to settle in San Antonio.
