Painting Artifacts with William Lewis

The class was based on the exhibit of the Boise Fire Department at the Boise Arts and History Sesqui Shop on Main Street in downtown Boise. After a quick slide show of the artist tradition of  painting objects, we were to pick an artifact from the exhibit that spoke to us and paint it in oils. 

Terry kept thinking someone was looking over her shoulder!
I wonder why?

The instructors painting, I love how he captured the three dimensionality of the hat. 

We were able to paint right in the midst of the exhibit.
The only other time I was able to do this was at the Dallas Museum of art.

I like the brick background on the painting and the fact that we got to use real wood palettes.

Students' work will be on display in the Sesqui Shop through the end of this month.

I was very impressed with everyone's work. Some had never painted in oils before.
