Young artist paints my landscape images

I am going to put in a plug for anyone in the Northfield area to visit the Northfield Arts Guild (NAG) through June 9 to see the high school’s Honors Art display. The high school students, who are seniors and juniors, have done some amazing work that includes pottery, painting, photography and more. The students showing their art have a ton of talent. You won’t believe the work they do; It’s incredible and fun to see.

My daughter, Amy, has art in the show. She combined digital art, acrylics and gesso to create some textured, 3D surreal images. I think she has some outstanding work on display (and I’m not biased at all). 

Another student, Jaclyn, has some paintings that I’m excited about. She paints some amazing landscapes with acrylic on canvas. They look very real, and I love her style and the images. I might be a bit biased about her images, since they are paintings of my photography!

Jaclyn did an excellent job painting my landscape scenes so the colors and look of the images are very real. In the photo that I show here of Jaclyn with her artwork, you can see the amazing job she has done. In the photo, you can see landscapes from several locations; one I took in Boundary Waters Canoe Area, one in Colorado, one on the North Shore of Lake Superior and one nearby in Nerstrand Big Woods State Park. She has painted a few other pictures of mine as well. When Jaclyn asked if she could paint some of my images, I was happy to let a young artist use my work as a subject to paint. (I was also happy she knew about copyright and that photos cannot be copied – even painted – without permission of the copyright holder.) 

To see Jaclyn’s art up close in all their beautiful detail, stop by the NAG in downtown Northfield, Minnesota. Besides seeing her great work, you can see my daughter’s awesome work and lots of other great high school artists. This Honors Art show happens each spring. Be sure to check it out and see the wonderful artists we have in Northfield.
