Illinois Watercolor Society: Featured artist Bob Holmes In-Person

The Illinois Watercolor Society meeting will feature a demonstration with artist Bob Holmes.  As an artist, Bob says, “Although I have never lived on a farm I have always been drawn to the rural life of small towns and farms. As a child growing up in Iowa I remember vividly running around my uncles farm with my cousins, or fishing and swimming with friends along a river. Now, as an artist, I want to invoke feelings of the serenity and happiness I felt from these times. Capturing a quiet and reflective moment of the sun setting on a farm or melting snow along a gravel road as winter begins to give way to spring are some of the things I’m after. For me the granaries and farm buildings are monuments to the hard working and humble people that built them.”
