Donna Coleman and Robert Shepperd

Today I would like to introduce you to two art friends from the Lynchburg Art Club. They have an exhibition at the Club House, 1011 Rivermont Avenue, Lynchburg. 

Donna Coleman is Lynchburg local, and paints highly colorful motives. On show are several of her oil and acrylic paintings, usually painted with very confident brush strokes, in a quite expressive manner. This leads to highly textured paintings, that sometimes function nearly as reliefs.

Robert Sheperd, also a long term Lynchburg local,  paints with highly controlled, exceedingly fine strokes. His painting style, a nearly pointilistic way of mixing color, is influenced by the Hudson River Painters from 1850s and the Impressionists. I am amazed by the detail in his paintings, evidence for high level of patience.
