International Plein Air Painters - June FEATURE artist

Larry Seiler

Artist Statement
Winston Churchill, also a painter, once said, "Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm."

As painters we can certainly see the application of this simple yet profound statement, but in the arena of arts business it is true as that sometimes life's curves in the road make the wanting of something bad enough eventually cause one to question one's own motives.  What does it mean to keep going...and to keep oneself enthused?
All artists experience bumps and bruises, and that's simply the nature of fleshing out a living, but for myself came the urging desire that painting be so much more.  More than reputation, more than reaching out to the promise and comfort of fine living,  painting has become a viable means to engage the moment, empowered to take in, see, digest and participate in a celebratory act.  A grand hoorah, a moment of praise!

It is a feeling of paying oneself straight away, acknowledging having been blessed to see more deeply.  To then find one's work a blessing to others, is a cup that runs over.

April FEATURE artist at International Plein Air Painters

Sherrie Russ Levine

Artist's Statement

Sherrie Russ Levine was born in Georgetown, South Carolina and attended Ringling School of Art & Design in Sarasota, Florida where she received her degree in graphic design and illustration. After graduating she worked in advertising agencies and corporate art departments in Atlanta, Georgia for 10 years before making Nashville, Tennessee her home. Since 1995 she has focused her energy on paintings in oil and has shown in galleries and juried shows throughout the United States. 

Levine is an artist noted for her loose impressionist paintings filled with evocative light and color. Her works capture the mood or atmosphere of any subject with expressive brushwork and just enough details to invite you to take a closer look. She often travels to find new inspiration and paints en plein air when on location, or always from life in the studio.
