Bruce Newman, SCA

I am a representational oil painter, using traditional methods to express my feelings, primarily of the landscape. Richard Schmid has been a tremendous influence for me and I have studied his work in great depth. Although I have painted for the most part en plein air, I have recently been trying to balance this with more studio work.

In 2011, I founded the Plein Air Painters of New Brunswick (PAPNB) and have made it my mission to grow plein air painting in my region. I have been an invited juror, have also been a member of Oil Painters of America since 2007 and have had work accepted into their prestigious Eastern Regional Exhibition.

I 
participate in plein air festivals in Canada and the US and was awarded 1st place in the 2015 Kings Landing “Paint the Past” plein air festival. As much as I love painting and striving for artistic growth, I also treasure the friendships I have made at various workshops, paint-outs, exhibitions and other painting events. I hope to make many more through SCA.
