The 2012 13th Annual American Impressionist Society National Juried Exhibition is this November. Right now is an exciting time for many artists who’s work has been juried into the show. Artist Kevin Macpherson is the judge of awards this year. The awards are announced on November 8, 2012. Best of show wins $15,000, the other awards given are pretty nice as well! Between now and November I’m going to feature the artists who’s work will be judged. I wish them all the best of luck, their talent is immeasurable!

The first featured artist in this series is Stuart Fullerton, the above painting was juried into American Impressionist Society 2012 Exhibition, great job! I really like the brushwork in this painting. Short strokes, thick paint, nice and loose. Stuart has a fabulous website, I encourage you to check it out. He paints oil, watercolor, gouche, and pastel. Can’t you just feel the peacefulness in this painting? No sharp edges, lovely background… very nice… I can almost hear the woman take deep breaths as she’s resting…

A blip about Stuart from his website:

Stuart Fullerton grew up in north central Wisconsin and studied ancient Greek and Latin at Harvard College.  After a year studying archeology in Greece and Turkey, he returned to Harvard for law school. 

Today Stuart works and paints in Chicago.  He is a long-time member of the Palette and Chisel Club and of the Plein Air Painters of Chicago.  He has studied with such wonderful artists as Max Ranft, Scott Powers, Ralph Oberg, Skip Whitcomb, Clayton Beck and Romel de la Torre. 

 Stuart has been accepted into juried shows such as the Oil Painters of America National Exhibition, Salon International, the American Impressionist Society National Show, the OPA Eastern Regional Exhibition, and the Bosque Art Classic.  He has been invited to take part in the Door County Plein Air Festival and the Los Gatos Plein Air Gala.
