Whether the subject is still life, landscape or portrait, the artist is always
Painting the Light.
A recent class project was to observe, draw and paint multiple versions of their subject....with a limit of 30 minutes for each painting

 Enjoy the individuality of expression in the adjoining originals of still life painted by students of the light.

The Exhibit is a result of original work created by Pacific Northwest artists with a variety of experience. Each artist has reached his/her present skill as a result of a lifetime journey of exploration and observation through their own unique "artist's eye".  One thing they have in common is that they have all studied with Michele Cooper, NWWS.

We hope that you enjoy the work based on the theme "Painting the Light".

"Just want to say thank you for sharing the online exhibit.  Your students did a great job." HF,Redmond, WA
" Enjoyed your sharing the Last of the Fall Color on-line exhibit with friends across the state. It is always interesting seeing different interpretations of a theme…and in this case, for those of us who know some of the artists, this is the next best thing to seeing the pieces in person. Thanks."   SP,  Pullman,  WA

"Nice display....!  It is hard to remember those beautiful colors as I look out on forever blue and green!  So hard to take!  I guess I should turn on the air conditioner and paint!  Looking forward to the next display." LM, Florida
