The Placerville Arts Association is pleased to welcome Howard Rees, auto designer turned full-time artist to this month’s meeting, Sunday, Sept. 15. Rescheduled from May, Rees will be demonstrating the special techniques of oil painting.

The meeting is held at the El Dorado Senior Center meeting room, 935 Spring St. in Placerville. The meeting begins at 1:30 p.m.

Rees claims that he was born with a paint brush in his hand. To this day, his favorite place to be is still at the end of that brush — whether it be in his studio in the California Gold Country or capturing a scene in a European Village.

A lifelong interest in art led Rees to the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles where he earned his bachelor in fine arts degree in 1964.

In 1975, after working a number of years helping design the ever-popular Mustang line for Ford and working at the Mattel Toy Co. designing the original Red Line Hot Wheels cars, Rees left the corporate world to focus totally on his love of painting.

Today, Rees paints with equal proficiency in both watercolor and oil and loves the unique challenges each medium presents.

His subject matter extends to Americana, local Gold Country scenes, intimate European street studies and magnificent vistas.

This is a free event. The meeting begins promptly at 1:30 p.m. with a short business meeting, followed by a brief meet-n-greet refreshment time. The demonstration usually begins about 2:15 p.m. and ends about 3:30 p.m.

Rees will be holding a plein aire workshop Oct. 7 to 10 in Fort Bragg and Mendocino. This venue has spectacular vistas to paint. Visit howardreesartist.com/workshops for complete information on this and other upcoming workshops.
