Local Artists Paint the Local Landscape

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

I was driving in the 92127 area the other day and spotted 3 artists on the side of the road capturing some of our beautiful Southern California landscaping on canvas.  Having painters and other artists in my family I was intrigued and had to stop.  All three guys were very talented and I enjoyed watching them create their plein air art.  The guys were Stan, Ben and Jimmy.  Stan and Ben teach painting at the prestigious Watts Atelier of the Arts school in Encinitas.  Stan’s website is here and Ben will have his site up soon here.

Here they are with their art which still may be available for purchase if you contact them quickly.  Stan@stanprokopenko.com, jamesp_art@yahoo.com, benyoung@cox.net
