OIL PAINTING DEMO with Dutch artist Carole Boggemann Peirson
Carole has been a professional oil painter and teacher since 2005. She is mainly inspired by the light
illuminating East Coast landscapes. She tries to captures the atmosphere, time of day and season to share the
beauty of a particular moment with those who view her works. Her demo will give visitors to the River Jam
event on Saturday May 4 (1-4pm) a unique opportunity to see an artist work in person as well as to get to know
the artist and her work. She will share her experiences as an artist and have some of her oil paintings for sale at
the event. People can also sign up for her 2-day Loving the Landscape on June 28 & 29 at Arts on Main.
