His current focus is on painting, with acrylics as his medium of choice, a notable use of striking color, bold sweeping shapes and themes, and meditative atmosphere. He is Paso Robles artist WB Eckert, and his work is part of the current Studios on the Park exhibition "Just Sweet," hanging in the Atrium through February. A portion of the proceeds from this show benefits the Festival of the Arts. Light Lunch is pictured. Eckert is a lifelong artist/photographer with diverse professional experience in a wide range of media, from fine arts painting and printmaking to photography, the graphic arts, and three-dimensional design. In addition to his own studio, he currently maintains a shared studio at Studios on the Park where he exhibits his work and teaches classes in acrylic painting. More info: WBEckertStudio.com.
