Original Festival Painting

Thea Schoettgen is an artist who lives in Bear Valley and Hathaway Pines.  Her adventures in the Sierra on foot, by mountain bike and skis are the subjects of her paintings. The artist paints large acrylics in her studio working from her photographs and uses watercolors along the trail to capture the flowers and views that she affectionately calls trail paintings. Her paintings are highly collectible, and this local landscape used for this year’s Festival poster will be a beautiful addition to any home or cabin.
