Featured Artists

Don Houghton

This is the first time I have ever been a featured artist in a show. I am very excited about the honor. There isn’t any real theme to my display, it is a grouping of works showing the different subjects and styles that I do like to paint.

"ECLECTIC: deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.". I believe that you need to paint what you love... otherwise... what's the point? I loved the process of finding them and adore who they have become. www.jodunnick.com
