For our Thursday, December 17th meeting, we are very proud to feature one of our members, Claire Payne.
Claire discovered and explored her passion for art through her own personal life-journeys. As often happens, the journeys took her through good times as well as bad, and art gave her a means to survive, conquer, and rejoice in the celebration and joy of life. During the 2020 COVID pandemic, Claire focused her artistic talent to develop “Agnes and Her Escapades”, delivering an often-humorous outlook on a challenging time.
Watercolor is Claire’s favorite medium, but she also enjoys trying her hand at collage and abstract textures.
Claire’s work has been accepted into international juried shows as well as the International Society of Experimental Art. She has been recognized at the Watercolor Art Society-Houston, and she has won numerous 1st-place awards in local art-league shows.
“I love the vibrant colors and the exciting freedom of painting in watercolor. My work is impressionistic, although representational for the most part. I also enjoy abstract mixed media. I paint for pure pleasure and the fun of the art.” Claire Payne
NOTE: This meeting will be held online via Zoom. A Zoom invite will be sent out to all current members prior to the meeting on December 17.
