Terry’s been working in watercolor and calligraphy again after a foray into oils and acrylic. She is not giving up on the oils, just following some inclinations to get back to some detail work.
Current solo show at New Dominion Bookshop running through September!
Terry also has three entries in the Teeny Trifecta Two exhibit at 2nd Street Gallery, also through September.
Post #1: Painting Process
Hello! I'm thrilled to be a recent Bozart member and look forward to sharing more about my work this month here on Facebook! For my first post in this series, I want to share more about my painting process.
I love working in layers - applying a textured ground, drawing an image, then adding and subtracting color to create a sense of atmosphere around the subject I am painting. My time as an educator for Golden Paints has increased my interest in exploring what acrylic mediums/gels/pastes could do to build a unique foundation for painting, so most of my work (whether it is oil, acrylic, or watercolor) is done on top of a textured acrylic ground. This post includes a series of photos that document steps of my process painting "I'll Meet You at the Summit".

Betty Brubach"Above is one of my most recent works in which Jim Cato and I collaborated. Jim created the background of red and dark blue stripes laid out with tape as a stencil and I painted a somewhat abstract scene of a path, lighter blue rooftops and windows on top of his underlying painting.
We call this painting "The Path." It is my first abstract, and I enjoyed the experience, finding it relaxing as it was less detail oriented than realistic paintings to which I am more accustomed.
Our collaboration is exciting and interesting to me. He uses acrylic paint and so I do too because he may paint a bit after I do and you shouldn't put acrylic on top of oil paint, which I typically used. I believe trying new ways of creating art keeps me fresh and interested in the craft.", stated Betty Brubach.
