I will be giving an artist talk and a painting demo this Saturday at the Watertown Art Association.  This is part of their ongoing series titled Elemental Forces and my work will represent the Earth element.  Below is a description of this free and open-to-the-public event. 
Special thanks to artists Jodie Wigren and Dawn Evan Scaltreto for this kind invitation to share my painting process and to Watertown Cultural Council for supporting this series.

This month’s Watertown Art Association’s “Elemental Forces” series funded by Watertown Cultural Council will feature the element, “Earth” and artist/teacher, Martha Wakefield. Painting in oils on panels she will share her tools, techniques and playful approach to enjoying the plein air experience.  As a popular art teacher Wakefield will also describe her approach to elements of the graphic language in creating an unique expressive voice.  To see more of her work visit her website at   Pictured above, Drifting Echoes © Martha Wakefield 2017, oil on panel
