A new artist’s work ….. I love it all . I hope you do too!
Next week classes start up again. It seems like I was just writing about having whole summer to look forward to and now there is one short week left! I gotta say, I’m OK with it….. I’m always a little sad when summer ends, mostly because I know my time in my garden is also going to be ending soon….. 22,000 square feet of beauty right out my back door becomes a winter wasteland where I barely set foot for 6 months or so. BUT, school is always fun. I’m excited to meet my new students, get some projects going,see my fellow teachers, and , YES, get some structure back to my time.
I am hoping to work on this blogsite a little more; take better photos of my work and get stuff posted more quickly. I may introduce a new page of works in progress – taking photos of paintings as I start them and then each time I work I will take a photo as well right up to the end. Stay tuned for excellent student work( I know it will be excellent…. it most always is!), more great quotes from working artists and I will try to insert more of my own personal thoughts into the mix. All of these ideas reflect the input I’ve been getting from people who read this blog, so I aim to please.
I hope the Gerhard Richter quotes were of interest to people over the summer. I didn’t start out to post so many but the book, The Daily Practice of Painting , proved to be a great source and I just kept going with it. So many of the quotes were helpful to me and I hope they were inspiring to everyone who may have read them.
So , stay tuned….. my next post will be images taken after my summer painting classes completed an exercise using a blurred slide. They turned out MAGNIFICENTLY and everyone who participated in the exercise enjoyed it as well. There will be images of the works in progress and completed. bye…
Here is a second great article sent to me by my friend and fellow professor at Edgewood Collge. I am happy to pass it on . Enjoy!
This is a great article that a fellow professor/friend of mine at Edgewood College sent to me. I told her, it makes me believe I may have actually chosen the right career after all!!!
