Jeri Salter presented the artist demonstration at the November 3 meeting of PSST. She may have let us in on all her secrets, from her plein air backing board set up (super neat) to her method of texturizing gatorforam. Although Jeri loves to paint en plein air, her setup allows her to paint within the car. This gives her the security of being safe and quickly mobile, as well as coverage from nature's wind and sun.

Landscape artist Jeri Salter is the PSST demo artist for the November 3rd meeting. She is also conducting a mini-workshop after the meeting. Click here for more info on the workshop.
To introduce Jeri and to get a little jump on the meeting, her feature interview is now available on the PSST website. Jeri clues us on her favorite tool: "There is a weird tool I use a lot and it’s a nut pick (to lift color). The kind that comes when you have a nut cracker set. I use it to pull off spots that are hard to get at otherwise, and they are great for making a telephone line in the sky." Click to read the rest of her interview.
