Our next RCAS meeting will be February 19, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. Location is the Richardson Public Library. The February Demo Artist will be Maribeth Jagger, demonstrating Alcohol Ink.

Maribeth Jagger has painted most of her adult life, having received her degree in art from Northwest Florida State University.

Her art reveals a great deal about her life and passions. Long, rolling country roads disappearing into the distance; lively colorful cottage gardens; quiet, pristine woods in the snow; or energetic close-ups of the majesty of nature: each painting conveys a feeling of joy and whimsy. Her art is a representation of the beauty she sees in the world around her as she reduces the subject to its most elemental and powerful components, and invites the viewer to step into that world.

She primarily works with alcohol inks as she feels they vibrate with a purity of color, fluidity and energy that’s hard to replicate with other mediums. "I love the vibrancy and spontaneity of alcohol inks. Much like watercolor, the inks can be controlled and manipulated, but I usually let them take the lead, then I'll jump in and manipulate them to develop my subject creating a balance between a loose fluidity and a tighter realistic subject which allows the viewer to complete the story and experience his own emotions."

You can learn more about Maribeth's technique HERE!
