Frank Baggett: Waverly, TN
Frank Baggett likes to capture many of Tennessee’s typical scenes of beauty on canvas. Working mainly in oils, the artist renders paintings that are reminders of childhood memories, actual images of old buildings, or perhaps the romance of a large city … his subject changes daily. He uses unusual techniques which include painting with a palette knife, painting with a small brush…or even a nail! His impasto style is a combination of Impressionism as well as Realism and can be seen done in demonstrations at both his studio which he teaches monthly classes, or when doing demos at a gallery or other venues. “Oftentimes I will walk past a place that I have crossed many times in the past, but this time the sunlight strikes it, and it suddenly becomes an inspiration,” Baggett says. He enjoys using light in his cityscapes which can depict the noisy, chaotic lifestyle of urban life which often folks can identify with.
