Artist Talk

Artist Talk About Painting Fayette County
Houston artist Andy Dearwater has been visiting Fayette County all fall, photographing and sketching images of the area to be painted in his studio. Landscapes and cityscapes from La Grange to Round Top to Fayetteville and all across the county. Andy's style is realistic and impressionistic, and his small canvases are warm and inviting. This may be the first fine art gallery show featuring an artist focusing on our area for his imagery. We think you will find the show very enjoyable.View some of the work now on our website.
