During an annual plein-air paint-out in the Carmel-Monterey area an artist friend invited me to stay at their 100-year-old carriage house on the 17-Mile Drive. We walked along the coast and took reference photos of exquisite coves, rocks and beaches. Now I have material for many wonderful paintings. My YouTube channel has passed 950,000 views and 3,200,000 minutes of artists watching 63 painting videos. Analytics show that 94 countries have tuned in to paint with “Marge Kinney”. That encourages me to continue to donate my time and support, to “expand my territory” to those people who want to paint, whether rich or poor, near or distant. Many do not have access to materials so I show a variety of materials for painting and list them in English, Spanish and French. It is fascinating to read the emails from emerging artists from Egypt, Netherlands, South Africa, Ukraine, Austria, Spain, the Caribbean and more.
Locally, at the Art A Fair Festival there are 100 new small oil paintings as well as large seascapes. Art A Fair is located at 777 Laguna Canyon Road, Laguna Beach, CA and is open during July and August. Please come to visit me and 130 artists’ beautiful art.
