Outside, the weather was cold and the wind was bitter. Inside the view was paradise. This picture doesn’t do justice to the beautiful presentation of work completed by our talented and skilled group of women, comprising the Artists’ Collective, who shared this space. We have plans to repeat this event next year at the end of our 6 month tenure in the historic Southampton Art School building. We have ordered better weather for next April!
Thanks to all the rain we’ve had, I’ve managed to avoid my outdoor chores and get into the studio and bring his piece to completion. It’s been a great journey following the hand of the artist Ivan Shishkin. Thanks for coming along!
My goal of finishing this piece was the end of July so have decided to press on and remove the deadline. I won’t post any more progress reports until the final one and am starting some new ones in my head while I work away –not sure if I want to paint anything ‘green’ for awhile tho’…:)
This post is for those who are interested in the stages of a painting (Ivan Shiskin’s here). If you are like most viewers, the end result is the interesting part. Please feel free to come back later when I hope to have finished this copy to an acceptable standard–my standard anyway! For those who are interested in the stages of a painting or just want to comment about anything related, feel free to comment here or on facebook. Thanks for stopping by.
