Classic movies have a visual style that translates nicely into representational paintings in the tradition of Edward Hopper.
Liz Frankland will combine demonstrations, one on one instruction and positive encouragement. Fundamental skills about composition, color, value and brushwork will be demonstrated step by step each week until the painting is complete. We will work from the same image and learn the process and problem-solving of creating a painting.

Finding beauty in the mundane
and inspiration out of boredom
Liz Frankland’s paintings, set in the mid 20th century, convey human isolation and a longing for togetherness with additional themes of travel and progress. The slow pace of days during lock down lead to further refinement of a salient feature of her work; the fine line between accuracy and expressiveness.
Ron Shelton’s craftsmanship has transformed what’s on-hand materials into sculptural art with a musical theme.
This exhibition is viewable in Articipate’s gallery by appointment. (248-812-9022)
