Original Paintings, Pottery and Graphic Prints.

Shawn Cornell is a plein air painter by the strictest terms. Simply defined – all paintings are completed 100% on location – there is absolutely no indoor touch up. He does this for the vast challenges of painting from firsthand outdoor observation and to fully honor the historical tradition of painting directly from life. Why complete the painting entirely on location? “It’s a personal challenge,” Shawn says, “I simply want to see if I can.”

Shawn has appreciated and collected pottery for decades. Several years ago, his wife enrolled them in a pottery class where he was given the opportunity to experience first hand, working in clay.

Before he became a full time fine artist, Shawn was a graphic illustrator for 20 years. He has now begun using his skills with Adobe Illustrator to create limited editions works of Graphic Prints.

Show Runs Through March 30th
