This past weekend, I stopped by Susan Powell Fine Art for the reception of their current show "Putney Painters and Friends". The Putney painters, if you don't know already, are a group of painters that regularly meet and paint under the guidance of master artists Richard Schmid and his wife Nancy Guzik. I had the pleasure of meeting many putney painters and local artists -- including the amazing floral painter Kathy Anderson, and Katie Swatland, who continues to get better and better with each new work. The gallery was unbelievably packed and was a testament to not only the success of the gallery and painters it represents, but also the renewed interest in representational painting. The below paintings are a few of my favorites. Check out Susan Powell Fine art on Artnet to see the rest of the show.
