Beppie Weisspastel & oil painting
Beppie Weiss has always been interested in figurative art and has developed a loose but realistic style in both of her preferred media, pastel and oil painting. She will show many of her artworks and demonstrate portrait drawing. Besides portrait commissions, the varied activities in her daily life provide the creative spark and subject matter of her work. A love of nature and gardening has inspired many paintings of flowers and gardens. Most recently, she works “en plein air” streamside as her husband fly fishes.
