Mike Beeman

by Sarah Judson April 05, 2013

We had a walk-in customer today from Wyoming who mentioned Mike Beeman, an award-winning pastelist, oil painter and instructor who lives in Cheyenne. His list of workshops includes Having Fun with Still Lifes, the IAPS Convention Class in Albuquerque, and Having Fun with Painting. Painting in oils or pastels, in studio or on location, his love for a challenge takes him from figurative work to landscapes to still lifes. No matter the subject or medium, Mike is focused on capturing the light and creating a mood that will engage the viewer. Shown here, from top to bottom, are Pumping Unit #4, Pastel on Canvas (8x10); 12,000 feet, Oil on Panel (5x7); Seen Better Days, Pastel on Panel (8x10) and At Ease, Pastel on Paper (7x5). Thank you to Gail Watford, for bringing Mike Beeman to our attention!
