W. Jason Situ, an award-winning plein air painter, will demonstrate his technique at the October 16 meeting of the Loma Linda Cultural Arts Association, which will be held from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Loma Linda Senior Center, 25541 Barton Road, in Loma Linda. Admission is free for LLCAA members and Loma Linda University students; non-members pay an admission donation of $5.00.
A prolific, dedicated painter, Situ will produce a painting during his presentation that gives visual evidence of his love for the natural beauty of California.
Born in China, Situ was educated at the prestigious Guangzhou Academy of Fine Art, where he developed both a fine oil-painting technique, and a curiosity about the United States. He emigrated here with his family in 1989. Situ says it was the California landscape itself that persuaded him to become a plein air painter, which he has been full time since 1997.
Situ’s work has won him “signature” memberships in a number of regional and national art societies. Awarded “Best in Show” by the Oil Painters of America 10th Annual National Juried Show, he has also won top honors at the La Quinta Plein Air Juried Competition, and at numerous other exhibitions. Situ strives to keep contributing his best to the beauty of the art world, painting what brings him joy as an artist. He is represented at Heritage Gallery West, Paso Robles; O’Dunne Fine Art in La Mesa; Roger’s Gardens in Corona del Mar; and Saga Fine Art in Monrovia; all California locations.
