Creative February—Daily Painting Demonstration
This program is only offered through Zoom.
All works shown created by Takeyce Walter
February is an exceptional month in artist Takeyce Walter’s life. Her family celebrates almost weekly birthdays, including her own. In 2014, the month became even more extraordinary when Walter decided to give herself the gift of time to create art daily. Each day, Takeyce produced one painting as an act to reinvigorate her love for art and honor her creative urge. That commitment and passion spurred subsequent annual Creative February months, the movement growing in popularity among artists and admirers across the country. Join Takeyce Walter live from her studio as she completes her final daily painting of Creative February 2022. You can see the pieces created so far on her Instagram profile: http://instagram.com/takeycewalter.
About The Speaker:
Takeyce Walter is an award winning contemporary American painter (born Jamaica) and art instructor, living and working in upstate New York. Driven to create from an early age, Walter has been producing art for as long as she can remember. Most recently, her focus has been on the natural landscape of her surroundings in the Northeast. Working with oil paint and pastels, Walter creates paintings that present the landscape in all its glory—flowing rivers, majestic skies, and picturesque lakes. There is a great sense of familiarity, tranquility, and reverence in each piece.
In addition to publishing her work online, Walter also exhibits in regional galleries in the Northeast, including the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, the Ticonderoga Arts Gallery, Saratoga Arts Gallery, and the Adirondack Experience. Her work has found homes in many private collections across the country and internationally, including local museum and hospital collections.
