Local artist Brian Hartmann is using his talents to capture the spirit of the Stateline. He joins Eyewitness News Anchors Jay Leonardi and Emily Waldron on set to discuss his first solo show, and showcase his work.
What started as a high school past time has turned into a full blown passion for Hartmann. For the past seven years, he has worked on honing his skills as a self-taught water painter.
Each painting he plans on showing in his first solo art show on August 31st at the Raven’s Wish Gallery in Janesville, Wisconsin, takes roughly three months to complete.
Hartmann has an impressive resume for a self-called “hobby painter.” He is a member of several art societies including: The Janesville art league, Wisconsin Water Color Society, and the Illinois Water Color Society. Hartmann also has work displayed across the Stateline area.
