MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

Our next meeting is February 20. The demo Artist for February will be Bev Boren.

Bev Boren was born and raised in Texas and now resides in Trophy Club, Texas with her husband Ben.  She is a signature member of the Outdoor Painters Society and the Southwestern Watercolor Society.  She is also a member of the Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society, and American Watercolor Society.

Her work is primarily the result of her need to paint.  Inspiration can come at any time and in any place.  She is not confined to one subject area.  She loves  to paint a variety of subject matter as well as working in various mediums.  Bev's paintings are created with things that capture her eye whether it's a still life, landscape, or capturing a person's personality.  Painting is her way of connecting with the world and the people around her and sharing those experiences along the way.

In her words "Trying to describe or explain my efforts at painting or drawing seems like a futile effort.  After all, I want my work to express itself without the necessity of words.  My best hope is that my work will stand simply on it's own, and find a connection with viewers where words fail".

Walt Davis and his work.

Walt Davis has taught drawing and watercolor painting for over thirty years. He is a past president and signature member of the Southwestern Watercolor Society and has won numerous awards in regional art competitions. In 2012, his painting, Insectarium, was selected for the American Watercolor Society Annual Show in New York. His 2013 painting, Katy-did, Katy-didn't, won the AWS Margery Soroka award and was selected for the AWS traveling show that year, and with a third acceptance this year he became a signature member of the organization. Davis especially enjoys introducing beginning students to the wonders of watercolor through a combination of instruction, demonstration, practice, and constructive feedback in a positive and supportive atmosphere.

Walt Davis worked at the Dallas Museum of Natural History Museum for 25 years and was director of the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum for 12 years. His experience building wildlife dioramas and leading field trips to various parts of the state provide him with a wealth of material for paintings. According to Davis, "Nature is the ultimate designer, using soil and rock, water and plants to create beautiful places following the laws of nature. Watercolor, applied according to the elements and principles of design, is a beautiful medium for artistic expression. My challenge as an artist is to coax the potential of the medium into revealing the beauty and complexity of the subject."
