Ellen Bayne Art Hop
Thursday, October 17th, 5-8pm
640 Clovis Ave.

“Who would ever think to paint their cat?” An observation made during an exhibition of my cat paintings. I do; because I love them and they are fun to paint. Some of them are beautiful; others not so much. The challenge is to see beyond the obvious to the unique self. 2019 is my nineteenth year living in Clovis. Currently my gallery is with Sorensens Fresno, south Van Ness Ave – down by the arch! My continuing art education includes the Art Student League in NYC, the Pacific Art League, Palo Alto California, Foothill College, Los Altos California and FSU Fresno California. Commissions are welcomed.
