A couple of weeks ago we received several paintings from one of the newest artists represented by the gallery, Bonnie Mason. Mason grew up in the beautiful mountains of Virginia where her family encouraged her early interest in painting and drawing. Bonnie's childhood adventures with her parents in the Blue Ridge Mountains included hiking, identifying animals tracks, plants and trees. This early influence is apparent in her plein air paintings, which evoke awe and appreciation of the Virginia landscape. In addition to her mountain landscapes, her portfolio also includes stunning seascapes, still lifes and "critters." 

Bonnie Mason obtained a B.A. Fine Art and now lives in Salem, Virginia. She participates in a plein air group that represents a variety of mediums and styles called The Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge.
