More about the artist:
I was born and raised in Detroit and following high school graduation pursued my passion for the arts by taking oil painting classes at the Center for Creative Study. In the late 1980,s I moved my young family to Highland where we have enjoyed the natural beauty of the lakes and surrounding countryside. In 2008 I joined the Michigan Plein Air Painters, a group of devoted outdoor painting enthusiasts who not only share their love of painting, but also their joy in painting in natural surroundings no matter what the weather conditions! The camaraderie and weekly critiquing by the artist members of our group have allowed me to grow and expand my talents as an oil painter.
I had the honor of being the featured artist for the month of October 2011 at Main Street Art in Milford. Also in 2011 I entered the Village Fine Arts Association,s Poetry and Art Night competition where I received first place. In 2013 I was awarded third place and an LA Artwork Studio art award in the Village Fine Arts Views and Visions show. I will have a plein air exhibit at the Blue Grill restaurant in Milford mid-December 2013 through January 2014.
I have established a home studio where I work on my larger paintings. Oil is my medium of choice and nature’s colors are my inspiration.
More about the exhibit:
My exhibit will be a collection of paintings that I have done since becoming serious about painting in 2008 when I joined the Michigan Plein Air Painters. There will be a variety of subjects displayed from the glow of a movie theater to an old barn fading away with time. Also an extensive collection of my plein air paintings will be shown separately from my studio work.
“What motivates me to paint is usually an inspirational flash of nature,s palette. This could be the warm glow of the sun on a bridge or a wandering stream in the winter but almost always begins with a reflection of light.” – Paul Tibedaeu
