May-June 2013

The month of May has been one of reflection and renewal for me as I've taken two workshops this month -- both using oil paint. The first was from Lorenzo Chavez and was focused on landscape composition.  Lorenzo was very generous with his knowledge and provided all of us with lots to think about and incorporate into our artwork.  The second workshop was with Dreama Tolle Perry and, for me, was an adventure into lots of color and looser application of paint.  Dreama provided lots of information and guidance and has planted lots of ideas for me to work from in the coming months.

In the meantime, however, my long time love of colored pencil will come to the forefront in a group show with District Chapter 207 of the Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA).  The chapter is having a show at Bellevue Art Museum in their Community Education Gallery.  If you are able, please come to the Opening Reception on June 7th, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.  Some of the artists will be demonstrating colored pencil application and artwork during the reception.

I LOVE those hydrangeas! Look at your color and brush strokes. Wow! What is the size of this painting? You've outdone yourself!

Hi Barbara,
Thanks very much for such a positive response! This is a 6 x 6 and I am so much happier with this one than an earlier try. I still have to keep working on color and brush strokes, but Dreama's workshop really helped.

Thanks, Fannie. Some day we may be in the same location again! In the meantime, we'll use facebook and blogger!
