Four AAG Members in SCWS Spring 2022 Digital Show
Four Anderson Artists Guild members had their artwork selected for the South Carolina Watermedia Society Spring 2022 Digital Show: Teresa Anderson, Rebecca Lawson Carruth, Al Morris, and Wesa Neely. They are among 66 artists in the show, which was juried by Kie Johnson.
Here are their reflections on their pieces:
Sailing the River Forks (watercolor) by Teresa Anderson
“This was painted plein air in the sunny late morning at a new location for me, so I was unfamiliar with the changing colors and the lake/river traffic. Other challenges included keeping the watercolor paper damp in order to add additional color without errors and keeping the original water design as the water continued to flow in reaction to the wind and water traffic. There are always bugs, wind and shifting sunlight. Curious visitors are often quite delightful!”
Lunar Garden (acrylic) by Rebecca Lawson Carruth:
“My inspiration was when I was reading a book and it described a moon garden of all kinds of white flowers that would show by moon light. I added a lunar moth and hence called it Lunar Garden. I have painted another one that is in the current Bay 3 exhibition at the Anderson Arts Center.”
Winged Goddess of Rust (watercolor) by Al Morris
“This is an ornament that is actually not on a ‘46 Nash. I was shooting pictures of various old cars and trucks when I came upon this iconic piece of automotive art. Painting rusted and corroded requires a slow buildup of layers to get the old, weathered look that I desired.”
Hank (watercolor) by Wesa Neely
“Hank is my niece’s dog. He is a gorgeous dog, but she laughs and says it’s a good thing! Apparently Hank can be very trying at times! I loved painting him because of his coloring and the patterns of his fur. The warm tones really glowed when he sat in the foliage at the edge of the yard!”
