Last week I began working back into an idea from several years ago. This coincided with hearing from artists that I worked with in Morocco.
I’ve had a painting-actually two, one oil and one watercolor- of the courtyard at the Bahia Palace in progress since 2016 and got the itch to work back into them. I feel a sense of freedom and excitement having an idea come back to me and change shape. I remember observing this couple and their child, years ago now, and here they are again.
I started this one in late September when the Cosmos were abundant (on a Masons plate from my dad), worked back into it last week. Watercolor on cradled panel, 11″x14″. It is now on display at Studio Hop (810 Hope St., Providence, RI, 401-621-2262). I will be there tomorrow! Sunday, November 26 from 12-5PM, doing an oil painting demonstration from a still life.
My dad and I picked these Anemones last weekend on a night walk with his dog for this Jugtown pitcher. -I noticed the pitcher first while cleaning up after dinner and decided we’d better go out and cut some flowers for it. I have never noticed the Japanese Anemones in his garden before but he says they’ve been there for 20 years.
This from the same stack of papers as yesterday’s post.
found this in my sketchbook from June, I had planned to elaborate, but here it is.
It was E. who taught me to put herbs in a vase! Masons plate courtesy of my dad.
Tomorrow, Saturday September 23 from 10-2, I’ll be at the Providence Artisans Market next to Hope Street Farmers Market. I’ll bring this painting along with others, information about classes and an art materials kit sample. I am looking forward to painting some beautiful something from the market.
