Artist Matt Smith - Arizona
Yesterday at the Brentwood Library the Chestnut Group hosted Matt Smith for a plein air painting demonstration. I think everyone there was in amazement at Matt's paintings skills, wise advice and his wit. What I was amazed at was how clean he was after the painting. NO mess! I got a few photos on my iphone but they aren't the best. I'll share what I have.
Also, a little about the Chestnut Group from their web site. " . . . is a nonprofit group of landscape artists . . . dedicated to the conservation & preservation of vanishing landscapes in Middle Tennessee. A portion of funds earned from the sale of artwork, inspired by the region’s scenic richness, is made available to organizations that share a common vision: To preserve fragile local environments and historic properties – from threatened habitats and farmland to protected natural areas."
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
