KEEN artists will recognise a familiar face in Dalby this week.
Host of the television show Art Studio, Wayne Clements, is in town and has set up a display inside Dalby Shoppingworld.
The Mt Tambourine resident continues to gather an impressive following.
More and more fans are tuning in to his show, which started on air three years ago.

Mr Clements will use the trip to raise money for CareFlight.
"We've been raising money for CareFlight for a lot of years," he said.
Mr Clements will paint all week and sell raffle tickets before an auction on Saturday.
The winner of the raffle will get to choose one of Mr Clement's paintings, with the remaining pieces being auctioned.
Mr Clements is calling the auction "affordable art".

"But the starting price for these paintings at the auction is around $150 to $200."
But it's not just his own art work Mr Clements is promoting.

"They say 'I wish I could do that'.
"I tell them to just get started and practice."

"The good thing is you don't have to copy exactly what is on the photo. Creating it yourself is the fun part," he said.
