Where's Carl Now?

February 2019: Carl and Nina had a good trip to San Antonio for NAMTA 2019. Thanks to everyone who stopped by their booth to say hi. In between days at the convention, they got to visit the River Walk which wasn't far from their hotel. They also ventured off the beaten trail to forage for Mexican food and were not disappointed (they can recommend two places where they found really good tacitos). After wrapping up NAMTA, they meandered over to the Alamo (not to be missed if you are ever in that area of Texas). 

On their way back, they stopped at the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum on the campus of West Texas A&M University in Canyon, TX., to view the Frank Reaugh display. This has quite a few exceptional paintings, including one that had been on loan to George W. Bush in his office in the White House once upon a time. Following that, they visited the XIT Museum in Dalhart, TX., which was a real treat.

More trips in 2019: More trips are planned for later this year. Stay tuned!


Have you seen this yet? For groups large or small Carl has three programs that artists around the country have enjoyed:

  • “Paint Outside the Box – Personal Style in Plein Air” A seminar/workshop centered around slides on Carl’s iPad: About 50 slides of work from the Renaissance to the present give context for a brief history of plein air painting and provide examples of the surprising diversity of styles that painters over the last 250 years have used to depict the world around them. For groups larger than 5 or 6, requires a room with a TV or surface to project on. The presentation takes about an hour. Carl encourages questions and discussion from participants – this often gets quite lively so, allow 2 hours.
  • "Paint Small for Big Results” Equipment demo and discussion: Carl talks about the benefits of adding small paintings to your repertoire, not only to expand your opportunities to paint but to make big strides in your development as a painter. This is a nuts and bolts session with lots of opportunities for questions about paring your equipment down so that you can. About 1 hour.
  • “Frank Reaugh” video: Frank Reaugh (pronounced ‘Ray’) was a unique turn of the century pastelist and naturalist in the Texas Panhandle – a really fine plein air painter. For groups larger than 5 or 6, requires a room with a TV or surface to project on. About ½ hour.

Put a group together to meet Carl (conveners and hosts get the coveted Guerrilla Painter cap and their choice of any product in Carl’s van FREE). All artists attending one of these get-togethers will receive a FREE ‘Goodie Bag’.
