Beauty of Oil Painting with Gary and Kathwren Jenkins
Southwest Cactus Flower
Gary planted rose bushes in his garden, but between those rose bushes sprouted spontaneous cacti, specifically the Southwest Cactus flower. This inspired Gary for this episode's scene. It's a beautiful combination of roses and this surprise cactus, which in the Southwest is often considered a weed.
In THE BEAUTY OF OIL PAINTING, husband-and-wife artists Gary and Kathwren Jenkins teach the wet-on-wet method from their studio and gallery. With palette in hand and clean canvas before them, the couple calmly and confidently move step-by-step through the creation of one of their brilliantly colored floral oil paintings. This season, Gary expands the subjects of his paintings to include portraits of animals and landscapes.
