MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

Our next meeting is November 21st. The November demo Artist is Pete Quaid, demonstrating his techniques in Oil.

I’ve been painting for 30 years.  As a young man I started my own business contracting the painting of billboards. After gathering some years of experience, I signed a contract with a Dallas company and painted their pictorial work in a studio environment for eight years. 

With the advent of large printers, I chose to transfer my skills to painting murals.  My clients have included PepsiCo, GE, Southwest Airlines, Landry’s (Saltgrass, Rainforest), Simon Properties and many schools and restaurants.   I feel fortunate that I’ve been able to support myself with a paintbrush for over 30 years. 

For the most part, I am self taught.  However, I’m grateful to all of the artists whose work I’ve studied because they have continued my education. In particular, Connie Erickson has provided her honest critique and her encouragement in my pursuit of fine art.  Beauty inspires me; training the eye to see color, values and design while pursuing the beauty that light reveals is a lifelong adventure.  John Pototschnik, Andrew Wages and Kaye Franklin have shaped my understanding of color.
