Day 3 Wednesday Art New England

Another wonderful day of still life class, Stanley demoed the use of a shadow box, sigh. he can paint –

I worked at getting my Monday mojo back, the landscape crowd came for a visit to our studio and the party girls went for more Pinot Grigio.

Today I painted watermelon and muffins and Marilyn is getting very good. She should paint more than one week in the summer! I worked on a luscious blueberry muffin that I resisted at breakfast. I’ve heard about some hydrangea on the north end of campus – so there will be an early morning hike. Its interests me that the surface that I paint on can make such a difference to the final project. Why is painting on gessoed paper  so satisfying and canvas so frustrating?

    can’t wait for the answer to paper v. canvas… it’s true for me, too. looks like your class enjoyed working together.
