About the Book
Artist Ann Rea's creative diary of her paintings of the Russian River in Healdsburg, California
SAN FRANCISCO BASED ARTIST ANN REA creates an Experience of Art ™ for select patrons that is an innovative blend of new and old world mediums. Patrons choose their favorite landscape and join this nationally acclaimed artist for a tour of that special place, one that holds their heart’s most meaningful memories. The artist returns to paint several studies in oils on canvas, shaping colors inspired by sunlight. Week by week, patrons witness the evolution of their painting by way of a dedicated online creative diary. They then choose one or more studies for Ann Rea to reinterpret on larger custom canvases. A beautiful signed storybook chronicles this personal experience. Ann Rea draws on the tradition of the French Impressionists and the influences of her mentor, contemporary painter Wayne Thiebaud, an American Art icon. Rea continues to garner national media attention, including in magazines such as Fortune and Wine Enthusiast.
