The Santa Clarita Artists’ Association will present award-winning watercolorist Fealing Lin, of San Marino, in a watercolor demonstration on Monday, Sept. 20.

Lin’s demonstration piece will be raffled off at the end of the evening.

Born in Taiwan, Lin began her journey as a protégé of renowned professor Ching-Jung Chen in Taiwan, and in the United States studied with watercolorist and senior art historian professor Verna Wells.

Originally following her family tradition of medicine and dentistry, Fealing ultimately abandoned her tray of instruments and high-speed drills in favor of her pallet and brushes. Now she is a teacher, demonstrator, judge and active exhibitor.

“Fealing Lin paints poems that vibrate with light and color ... long may she continue to delight the eye and move the spirit,” said Professor William Blackshaw, president of the Royal Watercolor Society in England.

With a fluidity of colors, Lin combines impressionistic strokes and semi-abstract techniques to elicit life and movement in her portrait and landscape watercolors. 

“My passion for watercolor comes from the opportunity it gives me to be totally spontaneous in the pursuit of traditional watercolor transparency, which is the ‘glow’ from the white paper that emerges through the paint once a fusion occurs from the application of wet onto wet,” Lin said.

Her paintings adorn the paper with both harmony and emotion.

Lin is an annual guest instructor at Yosemite National Park, an instructor at Brand Art Studios at Brand Library in Glendale and San Gabriel Recreation center in San Gabriel. She was featured at Descanso Gardens Gallery for 10 consecutive years and has taught watercolor workshops throughout California and the United States.

In addition, she is a signature member of National Watercolor Society, Watercolor West, and the Missouri Watercolor Society. Lin won numerous awards and was juried in many national exhibitions including NWS, WW, TWSA (Transparent Watercolor Society of America), Brand National, Audubon Artist, San Diego Watercolor International and many others.

The Santa Clarita Artists’ Association monthly meetings are held at the Westfield Town Center Community Room (located between JC Penny and the Food Court, 24201 West Valencia Blvd., Valencia CA 91355). Non-members are welcomed and may attend the first meeting for free. For information visit www.santaclaritaartists.org. Refreshments will be served.
