Art Walk 2013 in Lewiston, Idaho
Robin Speer Art at The Blue Lantern Coffee House
326 Main Street, Lewiston, Idaho

I enjoy creating art that inspires the viewer to giggle. I like happy art. The art pieces you will see are part of a series of European castles. Castles inspire imagination...linking with stories and fairy-tales we have heard. They have such personality and seem so majestic. I refer to my own sketches, photographs and collections of old photos for my inspiration.

To create a whimsical castle scene I start with lots of color. One day I discovered something new...dried up paper pallets have lots of left over color and I have a stash of them! I simply cut pieces of the pallet, selecting colors, and placing them like a mosaic for buildings in the scene. I finish with pen and ink to add detail using my drawing ability. It makes the buildings pop!


If my art makes you smile, then I am successful. Enjoy the Art Walk 2013.
