Welcome to the Pleasanton Art League
PAL & LAA General Meeting
Monday, June 10, 7:30 pm
Bothwell Arts Center, 2466 8th Street, Livermore
Guest Artist: Laura Marion
Portraits in Water Based Oil
Laura Marion has been painting since she could hold a brush. She was trained by her incredible mother, Diana Marion. Although portraiture is her favorite genre, she’s honed her craft over the last 15 years as a commission artist. She works primarily in water-based oil paints although she enjoys acrylics, watercolor, chalk pastel, graphite, scratch art, pen and ink–really everything she can get her hands on. Laura hopes to infuse her joie de vivre into everyone of her paintings and impart the same to each of her viewers.
Talk and demonstration description: Laura will be talking a bit about her life and how she became a professional painter, particularly a portrait artist. She’ll then be demonstrating her specific recipe for skin tone, which applies to her over arching color mixing theory, and how she achieves luminous and multi-dimensional skin.
Laura grew up in Northern California and although she is now living in Los Angeles, she makes frequent trips to Livermore, her home town. When she’s not painting, she’s a singer in two bands, Ivory Deville and The Walcotts.
You can see Laura’s work currently at The Big White House Winery and John Evan Cellars at 6800 Greenville Road Livermore, where she is the resident label artist.
You will be able to view Laura’s beautiful paintings at the Livermore Art Association Gallery June 18 through October 5 where she will be a Special Guest.

Firehouse Needs PAL Members Help!
Do you have your Artwork finished that you intend to enter in the Firehouse PAL Members Show coming up this November? We know that is a silly question, but the Firehouse needs images for their Guide, which comes out very soon, and general publicity. So if you are one of the few plan ahead artists that must be out there somewhere, send a photo of the work to Norma at email@example.com. She will forward it to the Firehouse and also keep a copy for possible inclusion in the postcard for the show.
