Welcome to Judy Foust Gallery!
I like a lot of color in my paintings, whether I am using pastel or oil. My favorite time of year is fall because the colors are so vibrant. You can see this in the background of many of my works.
Whether I am painting portraits or animals, I always paint the eyes first, because they start to come to life that way. I am a very detail oriented person, it shows in my paintings in the detail, such as in the furs and clothing. The furs, I have had people say, it looks like you can run your fingers thru their fur and pet them.
I am a self taught artist, except for some classes that I have taken from some very good artists in my area, that I admire.
My works have sold in Arizona, Maine, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Washington, Idaho, and Montana. I currently show my artwork at the MAD Gallery in Spokane, WA and the Women in Art Gallery at Las Laguna Gallery. I am a member of Portrait Assoc, the Oil Painters of America and Pastel Society of America.
