Randy Honerlah last lightRandy Honerlah, a local award-winning artist will be Placerville Arts Association’s February guest speaker and demonstrator. Young or old, accomplished artist or beginner, if you are an art lover, you will enjoy learning more about painting with acrylics from this talented artist.

The public is invited to join PAA at the Sunday, Feb. 16 meeting at the El Dorado Senior Center, 935 Spring St. in Placerville. The meeting begins at 1:30 p.m.

California artist Honerlah grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and currently resides in the Sierra foothills with his wife Sharon.

Honerlah’s grandmother bought him his first paint-by-numbers set when he was a boy and he was mesmerized by painting ever since.

During a 35-year career in the semiconductor industry, he continued cultivating his artistic skills on his own, earned an art minor in college and also studied with various artists.

Now in retirement, he enjoys the luxury of practicing his passion as inspiration strikes.

Past artworks were both representational and abstract in oils, watercolors and acrylics but today he prefers focusing on contemporary abstracts and impressionistic landscapes in acrylic medium.

“I really enjoy painting in two different styles, because different visions or scenes demand different approaches. Like many artists, I enjoy this style-switch because it re-energizes my outlook and vision,” said Honerlah.

Whether hiking with his dogs, fishing or just quietly sitting by a stream, Honerlah is constantly scanning the environment for inspiration, such as that reflected in his new series of Sierra landscapes; his love of the mountains clearly shows in his treatment of light, trees and water.

In contrast, his abstracts rely on vivid color, texture and composition to stir the human emotion and place the viewer in an unfamiliar perspective.

One of Honerlah’s paintings will be published in the first annual “AcrylicWorks — Best of Acrylics” book from North Light Publishers (January 2014) and he has been recognized and won awards in many local exhibitions.

Honerlah is a member of the El Dorado Arts Council, Placerville Arts Association and Folsom Arts Association.

His work can be seen at Gold Country Artist Gallery in Placerville, Artistic Edge in Sacramento and Third Dimension Gallery in Kamuela, Hawaii.

Visit Honerlah’s Website at HonerlahFineArt.com for additional information.

The demonstration will follow a brief PAA business meeting that begins 1:30 p.m.

Refreshments are served about 2 p.m. and the demonstration follows, concluding about 3:30 p.m.

The event is free.
