HAA April General Meeting Revisited

Two weeks ago, an enthusiastic crowd gathered for another general meeting of the Henderson Art Association and the sixth speaker in our ongoing Guest Speaker Series. HAA President Deb Mays set the stage. Then HAA treasurer and artist member Shirley Jeane shared her work and the journey of several years it's taken her to master her painting style, which emulates results that might ordinarily be achieved digitally. It was a great walk through her process.

Caricaturist Popeye Wong then did a wonderful job of deconstructing his digital technique. Before ever taking to the computer and moving from mouse to Wacom tablet, Popeye mastered traditional airbrush art. His pieces are primarily erotica but he has an incredible gift for recreating just about any likeness. The attention to detail and number of steps from start to finish are a testament to his painstaking level of perfectionism. Above are just a few of the images from that evening.

May's HAA meeting will be held at the same time in the same place. Tuesday, May 18th from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at Findlay Toyota in Henderson. All HAA meetings take place there on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, unless otherwise specified. No meeting July, August, or December. There's music, food, refreshments, good company, and artistic enlightenment. The next one promises to be even better than the last. Feel free to bring friends.
