Join us on the promenade of the Drury Plaza Hotel in welcoming Tim Kenney to paint his famous aspens in the historic plaza of Santa Fe NM. Plein air refers to the act of painting in outdoor daylight, a type of painting most notably used by French Impressionists and famously seen in works like Monet’s Water Lilies.
The sights, sounds and smells of places like Santa Fe are the inspiration for his paintings. Rising Mountains, Streams, Cold Air, The Smell of Pine, The Power of Trees are all the subjects of paintings of Tim Kenney. In just the last few years, Tim started painting with the palette knife. "When using a palette knife I feel as though I am able to express myself in a way that makes the scene come to life in an exciting and colorful way.”
In a city that averages more than 300 days of sun a year, it is the perfect setting to have pallette-knife-painter Tim Kenney produce his inspiring works in the sunshine, for this show. Come watch Tim Kenney use the unique light of Santa Fe to inspire his work and others through his distinctive painting style.
