Commemorative Poster, “Bending The Rules” by Dan Mackin

 

Hobe Sound’s very own artist Dan Mackin has created a unique, original painting, “Bending the Rules” for the Festival of the Arts’ annual, commemorative poster.  Mackin is one of only 30 artists to be Disney registered. His original work was part of a limited surfboard collection offered by Disney. He has also collaborated with Brian Wilson, original founding member of The Beach Boys, to create paintings based upon Wilson’s song narratives. Mackin has designed original surfboard art for major shapers including Quicksilver; his works hang throughout the Hawaiian Islands; and he has won the Outstanding Visual Arts award for Martin County in 2015.

“Poppy Parade” by Kathleen Conover

 

Kathleen shares, “Starting a painting with color, texture, gestural marks and layers may seem like “chaos”, but it delivers vital energy that is both fun and intuitive. Great design and composition are the elements that bring “order” to the rich start and turn your painting into an attention-getting and expressive finish. Applying strong design and compositional skills are the focus. Beginner or advanced, you are encouraged to discover and explore your unique expression and personal imagery in realism, abstraction or non-objective”.
