Featured Artists:

Linda Eno

My name is Linda Eno and I reside in Colorado Springs.  I have been painting all my life off and on while raising two children and working a career as a Health Tech in Harrison School Dist #2.  My husband is retired military so I have been able to fulfill my childhood dreams of seeing the world and many of the Old Master’s works.  I grew up in South Texas and dreamed of travel.  I am retired and have the blessing of being able to paint anytime I chose.

I have used many mediums over the years pastels, water colors, oils and now acrylics.  I have study under many teachers as well but feel I learned the most from Howell Poucher.  I had a short 3 years under his guidance but learn so very much.  My art is mostly landscapes of the scenery in Colorado.  I enjoy painting and the friends I paint with weekly.  A blank canvas is a wonderful opportunity to create a world for myself.

 

Kim Tulley

I love to paint!  I was fortunate to have Howell Poucher as a teacher, a well-known landscape and wildlife artist who saw painting as I did, realism.  Realism to me is the challenge, making it look like it looks and that it could walk off the canvas.  Lately though I’m seeing impressionism as a new frontier and dabbling with that a bit.  I’ve recently started back in oils and go between oils and acrylics.  I’m wanting to become a painter of fond memories, not only mine, but others, and I look forward to developing this.

 

 

 

Ed McKay

In 1980 I began working in computer graphics, long before the days of personal computers or Apple products, serving as creative directive for several decades in video, animation, multi-media, web-design, publications, and exhibit design In December, 2016 my wife and I retired to Colorado Springs, Colorado where the landscapes, seasons, and wildlife provide endless inspiration. I have been enriched by membership and participation in multiple artist groups in Colorado. Studio painting is my passion, with a focus on wildlife, landscapes, and western art. Plein air painting has become a way for me to expand my creativity, meet many artists, and explore new techniques in order to render a subject.
