Kristin Bauer (Pam on True Blood) is not only an accomplished actress but also a very talented artist. A collection of her beautiful paintings will be shown at the Anthony’s Framing Gallery in San Marino next Saturday September 26, from 5-9pm.
Kristin started drawing long before doing much else. It was an escape, a sanctuary, a meditation…a timeless activity that was always there, quietly waiting like a good, constant companion. However, for many years she took this friend for granted, and was lured away by the greener pastures and demanding hours of tinsel town, until one very stressful year when she was in great need of solace. Coincidentally, she was working on a project with Peter Falk, an avid art lover. He talked of an amazing art school in Los Angeles, and that’s all it took. One call, and now, a decade later, Kristin has thankfully spent hundreds of hours in her studio with a paint brush in her hand. Representational in style, you see Kristin’s relationship to her paintings – be they still life, landscape, or portrait – capturing their very “being” through the use of light and contrast.
