A few months ago I started an art group for interested persons to get together and create art, share techniques, or just talk about art. We are creating a display that will be at the Seekonk Public Library in October. Each member has taken a few letters from the group name “Expressions.” Each letter will be on a 5 x 7 inch piece of paper, within or around the letter individuals can embellish with whatever they like, i.e. Zentangles, collage … I chose pen and ink with watercolor. Here is one of my letters in progress. My inspiration was my Koi in the backyard pond. I’ll post pictures of the display case after we set it up.
A couple of quick watercolor sketches of my friend Odie done at the Seekonk Library. The first Friday of the month a group of people interested in art come and practice their craft. Open to the public between 12:30 – 2:30. Contact me for more info.
I wonder when I will have a style and/or technique that is all my own when I paint. Does it happen when you really love the type of work you are doing? Last week I started a landscape class at the Attleboro Arts Museum. This is going to be challenging…we are working on large canvases. This is a first for me…and I will be using acrylics. In the meantime I painted a few small items…a bowl of lemons, a tree, and a bit of flowers from my still alive bouquet…quite surprising it has lasted this long.
