This month, the Lake Travis Community Library is showcasing the travel inspired watercolor paintings of local artist Ben Kuenemann.
In retirement, Ben picked up oil painting after his wife encouraged him to take classes. He switched to watercolor in 2001 and has made painting a regular part of his life since 2006.
The majority of Ben’s work focuses on architectural subjects inspired by his love of travel. He depicts recognizable scenes such as London’s Big Ben, the canals of Venice, and the Charles Bridge over the Vistula River in Prague. Ben has generously offered to auction off the painting St. Mark’s Square to the highest bidder with the proceeds going to benefit the library.
Ben will be available for sales inquiries and discussion of his work at his reception on Saturday, August 6th from 2pm to 3:30pm. All are invited to visit the library’s meeting room to view the colorful and travel inspired artwork of Ben Kuenemann!
