"Icons of the West" will be on exhibit from June 1 - Sept.2012,
so they have included two more of my paintings in the show.
("Rough Rider" was able to go to it's collector after June 30th),
so I will still have work  available until September.

J.M.Steele - In Fine Form: Figures By Four - Museum Show

"In Fine Form: Figures By Four"
Four Oregon coast artists, wanting the ultimate painting challenge depicting the figure, have used live models from which to design, draw, and paint from life for several years. While they have successfully submitted their work to regional, state, and national shows, the final satisfaction has been getting together to have fun. This exhibition is a collaboration of their works, with fresh, lively brushwork and colors that breathe life into paintings executed in watercolor, acrylic, and oil.
Alexandra Eyer – Watercolor & Oil
Lorraine Filippone – Acrylic & Oil
Pat Renner – Watercolor & Acrylic
J.M. Steele – Oil.
I'm so excited to be a part of this show being held at the Coos Art Museum,
April 27 - June 30, 2012
Reception: April 27th Friday 5 - 7:00 pm

The four of us are all Gold Beach, Oregon artists and have painted together for many years and each with very different styles and mediums.
We've had a lot of fun over those years getting together and painting the figure from 'life', so it is a very satisfying feeling to see this collaboration of our work at CAM.

Pat Renner, Alexandra Eyer, Lorraine Filippone, & J.M.Steele (myself)
on opening night!
I'll be posting more images of the work (as the video of the show is way too long).
