She passes on her joy of the natural world as it exists in a moment of time.   Marilyn Zupan’s art reflects her English heritage.  After a time living in England, Zupan developed a…”deep love for the beauty and softness of the English countryside.”  Her watercolor techniques reflect this.  See paintings by these and other Art du Jour artists on the Winterfest Featured Wall.
Charity Hubbard has a stunning display of her work in the Salon.   You will see paintings that have never been shown in a gallery plus snow themed paintings perfect for the season.   Hurry in as Hubbard will have ten well priced unframed pieces (under $180) perfect for holiday gifts. Hubbard has been a professional and fine artist for close to 20 years with her current art pursuits gravitating towards fine art oil paintings of people, landscape and architecture.  She would love to have her work in your home.

Hubbard enjoys painting on location “en plein air” becoming engrossed in catching a special moment without being daunted by the weather.  She says, “It is a joy to find inspiration in the challenge of capturing life as it happens, attempting to be true to the mood and nature of what is in front of me.  Each moment is a gift and a place in time that will never happen again, and it’s a privilege to persevere in portraying the spirit of a moment in visual expression to the best of my ability.”
