My wife brought me a beautiful hardcover book "Sergei Bongart" who was the famous Russian Impressionist Artist for my birthday. I am going thru some changes in my style after the workshop from Guido Frick who had studied under Sergei. I did this second painting of the Franklin Mountains as my experment of using the Bongart method. This painting measured 30" X 30" and found that everyone who see this second painting compared to the first one that I did before the workshop like the second one better. I will find out more later if I need to redo the first one using more looser brushstrokes and brighter colors. There is so much more to learn the Bongart method that I cannot wait to teach this to my students.
My name is Micheal Glen Hammons and I love being an artist. I am also a President and art instructor at Art Center of Williamson County in Round Rock, Texas (close to Austin). I decided to start a blog in 2008 to keep everyone updated on what's going on in my world of Art. Instead of a daily blog, I am doing one weekly where I will invite you to view works in progress or favorite completed pieces of art. I appreciate comments about my work and, if you see something you'd like to buy, please send me your e-mail address. My work can be seen in Round Rock, Texas at Texas State University Higher Education Bldg, Ministering Physicians and Art Center of Williamson County.
