By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the first of two 12-piece Exhibitions of works by American landscape artist Jeff L. Good, (born 1954, resident of Texas and Washington state).
Jeff Good has been a practicing Architect for 35 years. He is a Principal in the firm Good, Fulton and Farrell Architects of Dallas and splits his time between Dallas and Vashon Island, Washington. During his frequent travels, Jeff enjoys sketching and painting, primarily in watercolor.
Jeff began painting with watercolor during his education in Architecture at the University of Kansas over 30 years ago when a studio professor invited his class to go outside and paint on location, “en plein air.” Jeff was hooked immediately!
During the last ten years the artist has put more effort into sharing his art and watercolors, which have been juried into regional and national exhibitions with award-winning paintings. Recently, Jeff had solo exhibits at the Goodrich Gallery in Dallas and the University of Kansas, Lawrence KS. , as well as award-winners in the Southwestern Watercolor Society 2014 Show and the Peninsula Art League Show, Gig Harbor, Washington.
Jeff is a member of the Southwestern Watercolor Society and the Northwest Watercolor Society. He has gained valuable knowledge while studying with the following teachers:

"Bringing the Museum to You"
“The watercolor medium has taken me many years to develop and yet you really never completely control it. That is the beauty and appeal of a process that creates spontaneous results. I love the process of distilling down a scene to the important essence you wish to capture and then quickly working to keep the painting fresh and alive. My goal is to capture the light and mood of the place.
"I prefer to either sketch or paint on location rather than paint from photographs. I carry a sketchbook with me everywhere, always looking for a few moments to draw from observation. This approach allows me to emphasize the feeling of the moment rather than getting bogged down with the details and accuracy of a photograph."
