Monday Merchant Circle Featuring Krug's Studio

Hello dear Blogging Friends!
It's Monday Merchant Circle with our PAFA Team Artisans!
Today I'm featuring Alan Krug of KRUG'S STUDIO!
Here's a little more information about him with some of my favorite pieces that he's painted!
Alan got his business name by combining his last name with his crafting interests that he made in his Studio.
He opened up his Etsy shop in Oct. 2011, right after I did!
Alan's been decorative painting for 7-8 years and oil painting for 5 years! See, I KNEW I liked this guy!!
Alan's work is influenced by the Pennsylvania Dutch Designs possibly because his father was German. He loves the bright colors of the Latino culture in his Southern California home and combines them with this interpretation of Folk Art. He does tone down the colors by aging them a bit. I think his work is beautiful!
Alan uses acrylics for his decorative painting and Oils for his Impressionistic Paintings like the one below.
He likes to paint on Wood surfaces and Bisque.
You can find more of Alan and his work at Krug Studios by following the links below:
LOVE your work, Alan! So glad to have you on our PAFA Team!
