Eric and Jane Wilson art exhibit


The Lake Travis Community Library will display the artwork of local mother and son Jane and Eric Wilson during the month of October.

Jane, a member of the Lakeway Painters and the Waterloo Watercolor group, enjoys painting landscapes of local interest such as the food trailers on South Congress, the state capitol building, and picturesque Lake Travis. In addition to landscapes, Jane delights in painting flowers, foliage, birds, and the occasional portrait for close family and friends. Jane is primarily a watercolor painter. However, she likes to attend workshops that challenge her to try new techniques and mediums, as well as expand and refine her work.

"I will try any new idea and am always looking for a fun subject to work on," said Jane. “I love to try new techniques and colors.”

Jane’s son Eric is a multi-media painter who likes to takes his work outside to induce high-intensity bursts of creativity. He scouts a location and paints as much as he can in an hour. For Eric, this rapid approach brings unique challenges, but also unique inspirations.
“Being out in the environment allows me to see a variety of details you don’t see in a photograph,” said Eric. “If I try to paint from a photo I’ll play around with one little part I like and eventually put it away unfinished, but if I know I’m only in this spot for a limited time, my hands start moving and eventually I have something.”

Eric also likes to challenge himself by working in different mediums. “I think my technical background of being an animator makes me really versatile – at work I am always trying new styles and software,” said Eric. “I’m really comfortable in the this-is-new-I-have-no-clue-what-I’m-doing space.”

All are invited to attend Jane and Eric Wilson’s reception at the Lake Travis Community Library on Sunday, October 22 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
