Artists commit to producing a painting a day

There’s nothing like creating a different painting each day to sustain creativity. Red Deer artists Jeri Lynn Ing and Erika Schulz have been painting a different small work each day since the beginning of 2009.

There’s nothing like creating a different painting each day to sustain creativity.

Red Deer artists Jeri Lynn Ing and Erika Schulz have been painting a different small work each day since the beginning of 2009.

They will be displaying their first five months of one-a-day pieces at the Gallery IS, starting Friday, June 5, from noon to 9 p.m. A reception with the artists will be held from 6 to 9 p.m.

Ing usually draws inspiration from her daily walks around Red Deer. Her observational paintings are like miniature snapshots of the city — subjects include a leaning telephone pole or interesting foliage.

Among Schulz’s creations are acrylic bird paintings and pen and ink drawings.

More than 200 pieces of original art are for sale.

Most One A Day paintings are small-format works — usually the size of a standard photograph.

Gallery IS is at 5123-48th Street (Alexander Way). For more information, call (403) 341-4641.
