ON SPECIAL EXHIBIT at the Smith Studio and Gallery in Geneseo, Illinois, are the large and photo-realistic floral paintings of Winfield, Illinois, artist Marge Hall. With a Commercial Art degree from Southern Illinois University, Marge has worked as an art director for a packing company in Aurora, IL. But in 1992 she took a two-day oil painting workshop that led to her large floral portraits. Marge says, “It was like a duck to water – I found something I really loved!”

The key to these extraordinary oil paintings begins with Marge’s high contrast reference photographs. Marge’s photo image is enlarged on a wrap-around canvas using a watercolor pencil. Then several thin layers of paint are applied until an almost luminous flower appears. It takes a great deal of time to build up the appropriate layers of paint and blending of colors. It is not unusual for Marge to spend 60 hours on a single painting. Marge says, “There is nothing more challenging or exciting to me than to capture the light.”

Marge Hall participates in many art fairs throughout the summer. She has been awarded Best of Show, Peoples Choice and Award of Excellence in numerous prestigious exhibits.

THIS EXHIBITION WILL BE UP UNTIL July 29th.

Hours at the Smith Studio and Gallery are Tuesday and Thursday 10:00-9:00. Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 10:00-5:00. Closed on Sunday and Monday.
