Join Greige Home Interiors and Inside Northside Magazine January 31st, from 5:30-7:30 pm at Greige for a Meet the Artist Party, featuring cover artist Becky Fos Artistry. Meet Becky, and view some of her favorite works on display at Greige Home Interiors.
Becky Fos’ works are simply signed B. Fos. Her impasto technique, applying wet, undiluted oil paint with her palette knife, is unapologetically bold and energetic. She uses color as a forefront in her pieces that allow them to come to life, evoking an instant sense of happiness.
“For me, painting is the most authentic way to express myself. I am not good with words, so I just want to keep this short. I feel enormously blessed to live in New Orleans. And I’m inspired by everything. I gather boundless inspiration from all corners of this wild, beautiful, and colorful city. New Orleans is my muse. I try to transform the spirit of my inspirations into oil paintings with my trusty palette knife. I choose the colors on my palette, but in the end, the colors really choose me.“
Over the years, her layering of oil paint and colors have become heavier and thicker, with some of the oil paint being raised half an inch off of the canvas. Her art can be found at her gallery space at Gallery B. Fos on famous Magazine Street at Jackson Ave. Becky Fos is a Texas-born artist and mother residing in Gretna with her husband Jeff Fos, and their son Jude.
Please join us and Inside Northside Magazine as we celebrate Becky Fos, and enjoy her inspiring works of art Thursday evening January 31st from 5:30-7:30 pm at Greige Home Interiors 2033 N. Hwy 190 in Covington. We look forward to seeing you there!
