So beautifully painted, Betty! Perhaps I'll see you in Ellensburg! My daughter lives there so I visit often. ~ Pat

Thank you! It is always a great feeling when something is "created" to express feelings, so others "connect"... that someone, some where is appreciative! THEN the art is COMPLETE: for art should be a communication, to others! ALONG with expressing oneself! Really not sure WHICH of these is the most important!! With this painting, the power and strength and free, fluid-dance feeling that these trees express... was my ultimate goal! I think I actually might have even been standing in the water, in order to get the perspective so the trees became the "King Leer" of the design! (If they had been surrounded TOTAL with the background "mountains"... they would have lost their "power and dignity"!! But creating them, so they broke into the sky area...helped give them their "power"....Also, the rest of the painting kind of took "second fiddle" (by giving less detail/information) order for the trees to then dominate this creation!

Excellent painting!

I got so many comment about this when I had it framed! I am working on living in New York for a few months and this is keeping me going until I get there! Sorry the photo is so bad - the light was on it.

Going to put it the front of a small cupboard door...

Good print. However I would have preferred it to be mailed flat. I want it to stay flat but it keeps rolling on me since it was in a tube. I put some heavy books to try to flatten it.

Hey, i was about to purchase the metal option, but the price with shipping would have been nearly $500 more...If you are willing to work on the cost there, I might upgrade. I also was considering getting embellishments, but guessing you don't do that on posters. Contact me if you are willing to work on the pricing. Otherwise I am stoked...this is my birthday present to myself.

Artist's Description

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 included 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, where hundreds of creations were shown and marketed. Those years were the highlight of my art career, for creating, and for friendships made, on this awesome is...

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...
