FEALING LIN

          Award winning watercolorist Fealing Lin of San Marino, California, was born in Taiwan.  She is now a teacher, demonstrator, and active exhibitor.

            Fealing began her journey into artistic expression as a protégé of renowned art professor, Jing-Yong in Taiwan, and subsequently pursued her career in the United States with watercolorist and senior art historian, professor Verna Wells.

            With a fluidity of colors, Ms. Lin combines realism, impressionistic strokes, and semiabstract techniques to elicit life and movement in her floral and landscape watercolors.  Her painting adorn the paper with both harmony and emotion.

            Although briefly diverted from her passion by a family tradition of medicine and dentistry, Dr. Lin ultimately abandoned her tray of instruments and high-speed drill in favor of her pallet and brushes.  In just a few short years, her paintings have been widely recognized and exhibited.

            Said professor William Blackshaw, President, Royal Watercolor Society of England, “Fealing Lin paints poems that vibrate with light and color…long may she continue to delight the eyes and move the spirit.”

            “My passion for watercolor,” says Ms. Lin, “comes from the opportunity it gives me to be totally spontaneous in the pursuit of traditional watercolor transparency which is the ‘glow’ from the white paper that emerges through the paint once a fusion occurs from the application of wet on wet.

            An annual guest instructor at Yosemite National Park, annual exhibitor at Descanso Garden, Alhambra City Hall Gallery, as well as numerous other galleries, Fealing has been enthusiastically embraced by the general public and private collections alike.

OCTOBER EXHIBITING ARTIST

 

Charlotte Tanner

           

Charlotte Tanner has early fond memories of art.  Her eighth grade art projects were a pleasure which was fulfilling to the creative part of her.  She also recalls being inspired while on a vacation with her folks along the Washington Coast.  Charles Mulvey was reaching a watercolor class on the beach.  He had decided to give up city life and bought a gas station to give him a steady source of income.  He sold his classes as well as his artwork.  Charlotte was impressed that someone would do that.  She knew this was something she wanted to do.

Upon her retirement a couple of years ago, she decided to explore the arts.  She has also worked with drawing, both ink and pencil.  She has dabbled in acrylic and done prints from wood cuts that she carved herself.  Her favorite subject matter is nature; everything from plants, animals, trees, landscapes, and sometimes people in landscapes.

Studying at the Art Box Studio on Mondays with Sylvia Megerdichian is an activity that Charlotte enjoys.  Individuality is encouraged there, as each student follows their own direction.  The critiques are lively and constructive.

Charlotte teaches a watercolor class every week in Riverside.  She has also studied with Christopher Schink and Skip Lawrence.  Last spring, she was fortunate to attend the Intensive Study program in Taos, New Mexico.  The experience included ten days of painting and instruction with Schink, Lawrence, Katherine Chang Liu, Fran Larsen, and Alex Powell.  She felt the experience was positive and nurturing as well as helpful with the networking process in meeting other artists---all of the things that will help her reach her goal of being the best artist she can be.

Charlotte Tanner’s artwork will be included at the Art Box Studio Tenth Anniversary Exhibition on October 18.  Charlotte serves as a member at large on the Board of Directors for the Associated Artists of the Inland Empire.

Charlotte Tanner enjoys her Mondays painting at the Art Box.
