Such a beautiful representation of Catalina Island, one of my favorite places. I've always admired your work here in Sandpoint and this one is gorgeous.

THANK YOU! This is one painting, that was TOTALLY 100 degrees in the opposite direction, that I usually take, while doing a plein air painting! BUT, once it took "hold of me"... it sort of "lead the way" to the finish you see. I believe each artist has to "listen" to what the energy, feeling, light, etc is sharing with them at the time, and let go of all "familiar responses, that were used in the past paintings".... if one does this, there will always be a freshness and "original" quality to their work! IF we DON'T...then we merely waste our time and paint!

very impressive, Betty

Excellent colour harmony!

I ordered this bag to be used by my very handsome 84 year old gentleman friend when he goes to water aerobics with me everyday, He grew up in Harvey Illinois as the oldest of five children in a economically challenged family. There were no books in his home and he was thrilled to find a public library where they let you borrow books to take home and read. It was the start of a lifetime of the love of reading and learning and the pathway for financial success. Thank you William Brody for creating this painting.

Artist's Description

Thru out the California landscape are many noble Eucalyptus trees...this one, is exceptional, in it's wind blown survival beauty. From 1986 to 1996 about 15 or 20 artists would gather on Catalina Island, to paint for a week "en plein air". Before the first year, Denise Burns, who started Plein Air Painters of America (PAPA), asked me if I would put together one ad for the following year's show. I told her I would, provided that we do a campaign that involved the entire year, since one ad would be throwing our money away. So, I set out an ad campaign, that involved 3 to 5 publications, including Southwest Art, Artists of the Rockies, Art West, Art Talk. After about 5 years, it seems that "plein air painting" started taking the country by storm. Groups were springing up all over, not just the U.S. but around the world! For the following 10 or 12 years, we would meet on Catalina Island and paint for about 10 days, and then have a gala event at the Casino Ball Room,...

About Betty Jean Billups

Betty Jean Billups

Capturing an inner feeling, so quickly passing, that's beyond words, almost beyond thought: the nuances that dance between a mountain & the sky that embraces her, creating a symphony that the eyes perceive, but only the soul remembers. This celebration of light upon the physical & ethereal worlds, creates a love affair for the viewer. It's this special moment that excites me, that drives me to risk failure, if I but the chance to capture a fraction of what I see, feel or know, from this wonderful experience we call "Life!!" Before 1986 the word "plein air" had not been used in the United States art field since around the 1920s. An artist from Catalina Island called me, and asked me to do ONE national advertisement, to promote a group...
