 Blue-Sky Painting

BY CLAUDE FRANCHETEAU
@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

"I was lying on my back, near the river, my eyes staring into the deep blue of the sky. At the edge of my field of vision, I could see the rooves and chimneys of buildings, lost in the vastness and giving meaning to it. What I saw could be a way to paint."
Claude Francheteau paints contemporary and yet paradoxically classical skies.
With the help of modern acrylic paints and digital photography, depicting skies in the ancient way with a modern eye. A sincere kind of blue sky thinking." 
Claude Francheteau

Painting Nepal - Documenting the Adventure

BY MEREDITH MEEKS
@ VOL 4 ON MAR 02, 2017

Meredith Meeks shares the experience of artists going through a transformational period in their career. Bruce Aiken is a world renowned painter of the Grand Canyon and has devoted his life to capturing its beauty through his artwork. Now he has left the bottom of the world's most iconic canyon, to travel to top of the world - the Himalayas. For 33 years, Bruce lived in the Canyon with his wife and children, relentlessly painting the scenery around him. At age 66, Bruce was rattling his cage. His goal was to paint different scenery. But what he discovered was something different -neither expected nor calculated. Tashi Tsering is a mountain guide and community leader from Nepal. He met Bruce while guiding him through the Himalaya to Gokyo Ri - the ideal vantage point for Bruce's paintings. On their trek, Tashi shared his life altering story from the Gorkha Earthquake in 2015. He lost his wife, his daughter, and members of his extended family. His home village of Langtang lost their elders, their homes, and their economic lifeline - the tourism industry. Tashi is currently working to rebuild his village and preserve their culture for future generations. He told Bruce of the reconstruction efforts that begun immediately following the earthquake in April 2015. Tashi's story moved Bruce to go to Langtang to witness the devastation firsthand. Bruce started taking in beyond the landscape - but began painting people.
