Monthly Meeting & Demonstration - March 10th: Jim Flood 'Palette Knife Painting'

This month we are pleased to welcome Jim Flood to our Monthly Meeting for March Tuesday the 10th at the Stans Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Jim was born in Sydney in 1941. In early childhood he showed a natural talent for sketching, drawing and painting and this has been his continuing passion throughout his life. After leaving school, he served an Apprenticeship as a Letterpress and Flexographic Printer and using this technical background, moved into sales in the Printing Industry.

Jim studied with the late Bill Golding and Otto Kuster and found oils to be his chosen form of expression. He was drawn to the use of the palette knife to produce the textures he wanted to achieve and is a member of Southern Cross Art Group.

Over the years, he has studied the landscape with its many hues and colours and has developed his own distinctive painting style. Jim’s impressionistic, modern, traditional paintings, encapsulate the colours of Australia and reflect his great love for the land, sea and waterways.

He is particularly fond of our native gum trees in all their mystery and majesty and recreates the feelings he experiences amongst bushland settings, capturing on canvas the peace and contentment he enjoys.

Jim loves travelling and exploring this wonderful country in search of inspiration and new subjects to paint.

Jim’s work is featured in private and corporate collections throughout Australia and overseas. He has held solo exhibitions, been featured artist and conducts master classes, workshops and demonstrations. Jim has also exhibited in international art exhibitions in Paris and New York.

Both Members and Non Members are welcome to join us for our meetings to view an inspirational artist at work each month, as well as the opportunity to enjoy networking with like-minded art enthusiasts.

7.30pm Tuesday 10th March at the Stan Stevens Studio, Windsor Library, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor (Please arrange to park outside of Library due to carpark early closure)
