Dog Show Scenes
by Terry Chacon

Terry is an avid plein air artist.  Fascinated with impressionistic style paintings like those of Monet, she sought to learn a style of painting that would enhance her abilities by adding color and light to her subjects not only in her studio but on location as well.   Capturing the light is the most important part of her paintings.
