Houston resident, Jeanne Reavis, is the featured poster artists at the 2013 ArtWalk to be held in Fayetteville, Texas, on May 4thand 5th. Her oil painting, Willow Springs Bridge, not only captures the beauty of the area but reflects the history of the region with its image of one of the few remaining metal bridges still in operation. The original painting will be on display at ArtWalk and will be raffled to raise funds supporting ARTS’ Fine Art Assemblies and free Art After School program in rural Texas.
Reavis has been interested in art all her life. After raising a family and pursuing a 35 year career in retail, she took up oil painting. She has taken workshops across the country and attended various classes in Houston. She started painting en plein air several summers ago, finding Mother Nature to be the best teacher of all. She has learned that the classroom outside is just full of exciting challenges and discoveries. And the experience makes her see what is true. The artist’s goal is to capture the feeling of the local, the uniqueness that called to her as an artist. These things she strives to artistically express and share with the viewer.
She has participated in numerous juried shows and has paintings in private collections in Texas as well as across the U.S. She paints in her studio and garden in Houston and takes every opportunity she can to paint outside. She feels blessed to share in the camaraderie that comes with painting with other artists on this wonderful journey.
Meet Jeanne Reavis and view more of her artwork at ArtWalk on the square in Fayetteville, Texas on Saturday, May 4th from 10 AM – 5 PM and on Sunday, May 5th from 11 AM – 4 PM. http://www.jeannereavis.com
