Art Show


My son, Ian, and family came for a visit and while taking a look in my art studio he said he wanted a closer look at the "Hopi" painting.  We decided to haul the painting over to the house and look at it unobstructed, away from easels, canvas and arranged chaos in the studio.  Voila!  Once the painting was being shown in a clutter free environment it truly took on its own presence.  What a change to see this painting in its new surroundings.  Touring the studio made for "A Painting Day".

I will be away for a couple of weeks so posting may be infrequent.  I will be visiting family in the San Diego, California area.  I am taking my paints and hope to have some painting time.

Hopi est une grande peinture et je suis tout à fait d'accord avec toi, il est bon de voir notre travail dans un autre environnement.
Je me réjouis aussi de m'apercevoir que tes enfants s'intéresse à ton art. Cela doit faire du bien...
Je te fais de gros bisous.

Have a lovely holiday Ruth. Your painting is very beautiful, I agree that it can be difficult to judge a painting at times in a studio where there is so much to distract the eye. Also when a picture is framed it changes again!
