Consignment on Reid by Dawn Whitelaw

WHOA! This fabulous green stopped me in my tracks! What a delightful yet simple painting…

Read a blip about Dawn from her website (and note that she’s giving several workshops this year, info on her site!):

Dawn Whitelaw maintains a studio at “The Factory” in Franklin, Tennessee. The opportunity to paint landscape plein air with colleagues adds richness and honesty to her studio work. For over 25 years she taught basic principles of oil painting as an adjunct instructor at David Lipscomb University. Among her influential teachers are Scott Christensen, Cedric Egeli, T. Allen Lawson, Quang Ho and Jim Pollard, but most of her instruction and inspiration comes from nationally preeminent artist Everett Raymond Kinstler.  At present, she teaches workshops nationally.

Her ability to capture life in paint has been noticed. Her awards include the Certificate of Merit for her portrait at the National Portrait Convention in 1991, Best of Show at the Portrait Society of America in Washington DC, and the Award of Excellence in the Oil Painter’s of America exhibition in 2002. In 2010 Whitelaw was one of ten American women artists invited to participate in the “Inspiring Figures” exhibition at the Butler Institute of American Art.

Catch you back here tomorrow!
