Weekly Paintings By National Award Winning Artist Terry d. Chacon

Friday, June 29, 2007


This has been a very busy week with the Plein Air Artists of Riverside. On Friday June 22, 2007, eight artists were asked to paint at the 951 event at the Riverside Art Museum. The event had 600 invited guests who watched the artist at work and asked a lot of questions, enjoyed the wine and specialties as they strolled through the museums beautiful galleries and listened to the lovely live music available on each floor. The saxophone player who played on the first floor was only 19 and so accomplished. I wanted to buy one of his cd's, but by the time I was finished painting, he was gone. I am hoping to find out his name and order a cd, he was terrific. Another thing that I learned was that the museum has a 3rd floor. It is actually the rooftop which has a stage and a beautiful view of downtown Riverside. Definitely a future painting site! I painted outside by the red carpet entrance to the museum and was taken by the way the light and shadows was affecting the beautiful satin draped pedestals with the flower bouquets. This painting is 5 x 7 and done mostly with a brush. I started another painting of the beautiful newly painted blue doors of the museum, but will have to go back another time to finish them. Terry
JUST IN: The sax jazz player's name is J. Boykin, google him and order his cd. He is great!
