Jenny Willigrod, Pastel

Jenny’s artwork has been labeled “Southwest Whimsical”.  It is brimming with bright, bold colors and subjects from scenes of the Southwest and Mexico.  It will put a smile on your face as it invokes memories from the past. “I am inspired by bursts of colors in our harsh desert landscapes such as in the brilliance of a bright pink cactus blossom or a shimmering adobe wall under the desert moonlight sky”, says Jenny.

Peggy Orbon, Oil and Pastel

Inspired by the dramatic colors, fantastic landscapes and the wonderful weather of the Southwest, Peggy enjoys painting landscapes preferably on location. It requires painting quickly before the light changes.  Peggy’s main focus and interest is capturing the light as it appears in the landscape.
