New watercolour palette selection

This week’s featured artist in the Blair House Gallery is nationally acclaimed artist Andrew Saldana. His work is exhibited in galleries, museums, and various private collections all over the United States. For years his teaching and university duties took precedents over his painting but he is now back to devoting time to producing his own work. His work is more contemporary, reflecting a subtle and successful blending of abstract and impressionism. Recently he has been going through an exploration of combining the human figure, color and abstract forms. His most recent creations are inspired by his family, travels, and his Latino culture.  When you stop in to view our Gallery at the Blair House Inn Saldana’s Red Sky and Ollas are not to be missed.
