10:15 AM –  Studio visit with painter, Lesta Frank

I paint people and places, color-drenched in layers of metaphor. My love of painting started when I was four with fingerpainting.
The same excitement about making art is as alive as it was then. My paintings are my hearts’ connection with the world around me. 
The subject matter is myriad. Color and  expression of emotion are the key components of my art. The paintings have recently expanded from watercolor to mixed media, with a new emphasis  on combining more abstraction and texture with imagery.
11:15 AM – Gallery visit with painter, Charles Field at Hunt Gallery
The immediacy of plain-air painting is exhilarating. I can see and feel the enormous sweep of nature with all elements in motion. In the studio, my approach is as direct as when I am working in the field… I love to move paint and color in response to the challenge of natural form, space and light.
