Check out my new page and think about buying an artwork for a cause. Each Painting’s profit will be donated to help protect the immigrant children that are suffering under the current administrations inhumane imprisonment. $100 watercolors – and to help children… can’t hardly beat that!
My shoulder has been operated on and recovery is happening. A big thanks to Julie for helping out and taking care of me. Here’s my first painting and my large canvas waiting in my studio.
The lessons learned by working out in “these conditions” is a life long learning skill for the painters I get to work with. The cool air, crisp breeze, grey sky can help them learn that regardless of the weather – one needs to get out and paint.
During my time bringing Abby out to Washington DC, I was able to take a little bit of personal time wow others were getting ready to make a couple of paintings. My speed is a priority. “Library of Congress” was my first and “Pilar at Breakfast” was my second and what is probably the last from the trip is the Capitol Hill Hotel and Library of Congress.” Enjoy your portrait Pilar.
Thank you to all the staff and volunteers at Taliesin. The Plein Air week was awesome – even though I was able to participate only in the Buyer’s Reception on Saturday night and the Quick Paint on Saturday. These two events were wonderful and inspiring. I look forward to next years’s (and perhaps a few more in between). Enjoy the video by Richard and Diane Higby – I hope you enjoy. Also – take a walk through my photos of the Quick Paint day!
Thanks to Melanie at Dazzle Body Art at the WI State Fair for the opportunity to come back and paint for the day. I talked to SO many great people and saw many of my friends and former students.
This has been a great week of art making for me. Starting off with the WI State Fair and then with the Waterford Seven. Here is what I got done at the Fair. All for sale in the Expo Building.
Birk got a haircut tonight… cute huh…
