a few of my favorite things...sean huntington's paintings

I’ve been waiting for a couple of weeks to introduce you to Sean Huntington and his beautiful paintings while he was getting his new website up and running. We met Sean a couple of years ago at Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts when he was a couple of booths away from us. He is a great guy, and his paintings are amazing.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I have a thing for trees. And Sean captures their beauty so uniquely. He uses watercolors and a resist technique to create incredibly stunning paintings of forest landscapes. Most of these forest landscapes are inspired by Pennsylvania forests so that makes them all the more special and attractive to me.

I love his aspen paintings….

He does a lot of shows around Pittsburgh and upstate New York including one at the Chautauqua Institute in Chautauqua, NY coming up August 2. This was the original Chautauqua, but there are others around New York and Pennsylvania. If you don’t know anything about Chautauqua’s, they were formed originally as small communities centered around arts, education, religion, and recreation. To me they are really charming picturesque communities and a great place to have an art show and view Sean’s work.

Take a look at Sean’s website; he will be adding more photos in the future. And if you are anywhere near one of the places he is doing a show, stop by and search him out. Not only will you be captivated with his paintings, you will not leave his booth without smiling and laughing because he is funny guy with a great attitude.
