Today we finished laying out the drawing for panel #2 (of 4)…..we couldn’t wait to see the panels together so we set them up outside Jim’s studio. Check it out….it’s coming together!
The last couple summers I have geometrically progressed in the amount of time I spend in the garden. Here are a couple photos i saw while going through my camera. These 2 quick shots reminded me of the influence daily life has on my painting.
Dahlias need to be pulled from the ground prior to frost, then wrapped up and watered a bit during the winter. Their over night tranformation from bud to full blooming flower is enough for even this late nighter to get up early .
This painting was just completed for the Magic is in the Air exhibition that opens @ Schoodic Education and Research Center in Winter Harbor Maine August 7th More and better Dahlia photos to come
We decided to start working outside so the light will match the final location. Here is Jenny painting the first of four panels outside of Jim’s studio on a perfect July morning. The task at hand is 3 artist with very different approaches discussing and agreeing on the next step we take it day by day
