Watercolor artist will appear at Tahoe Art League meeting

The Tahoe Art League will welcome North Shore artist Randall Stauss at its monthly meeting from 7-9 p.m. Aug. 11 at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd.

For more than 30 years, his watercolor plein air paintings feature Lake Tahoe and the West Coast.

A third generation Oregonian, Stauss began drawing and painting at an early age. Encouraged by his parents, he began taking art lessons at the Portland Art Museum. He studied at the Portland Art Institute, Oregon State University and the University of Oregon. In 1985, he was accepted as a signature member of the National Watercolor Society; the same year, he began teaching his popular watercolor workshops.

A representational painter, Stauss can capture the beauty and wonder of Lake Tahoe, as well as the fun and enjoyment of the people he often includes in his paintings.

“Painting is largely a matter of inspiration and seeing things clearly,” Stauss said. “The medium isn’t so important, although we won’t be able to express what we see and feel without a certain command of our materials.”
