October 2020 Fine Art Newsletter

Updated: Nov 14, 2020

“I'm not performing miracles, I'm using up and wasting a lot of paint...”  Claude Monet Take it from a master, making art is not a simple, linear path from start to finish. I like what my ex-boss used to say, "If it were easy, everyone would be doing it." The studio is a place of challenges and unlimited potential, an exciting place to walk into each day. At last count, I have 9 works going in the studio and more will be added to the group. It works much better for me to have a number of things in progress at one time. I can work more leisurely that way because I'm not trying to make a finished work at that point. I'll push one work forward a bit and then problem-solve a portion of another canvas that needs attention. Some will finally find completion and new ideas are brought to the new, white canvases. My thanks to the Page + Waterman Gallery in Wellesley,  Massachusetts for placing my oil, Iridescent Lake to a private collector. Also, more thanks to the Carol Jensen Studio for placing a large, limited edition giclee on canvas in a Bellevue, Washington corporate space. Thank you! Private classes have begun in my new Castle Rock studios for one or two-person classes during these times. Meanwhile, artists are signing up for my private, in-person lessons and the online, 4-month Art Mentoring Sessions. There are a limited number of dates available each month, so please join in soon. Feel free to contact me and start a conversation about the possibilities. I hope to hear from you soon,

Enjoy the beauty of the changing seasons,
