Greetings Patrons, Artists, and Art-lovers!
Oh-Be-Joyful is proud to announce that one of Shelby Keefe’s paintings from the 2014 Crested Butte Plein Air Invitational has been chosen to grace the cover of Southwest Art in March 0f 2015!
Here’s what OBJ Owner Shaun Horne has to say about the Milwaukee-based artist:
“Shelby is painting with great confidence and joy now, and it’s really visible in her paintings. She’s very comfortable with a full palette of color, and embraces a strong shape life, such that the finished paintings end up with fun, emphatic designs.
Shelby went up against some of the most competitive painters in the country at our 2014 Plein Air Invitational, and she left with one of the best sales numbers. I was very impressed with the consistently strong appeal of her paintings.
Shelby is an extremely good painter now, and I think she might be just hitting her stride. I’m really pleased to have her in our gallery”.
The painting, titled “Hanging Out at the Old Hotel” is an 18″ x 14″ oil painting of what is now a rug gallery in Historic Downtown Crested Butte. The piece now makes its home at the private residence of a very lucky patron.
