The Tuesday class enjoyed painting in a wonderful garden in Hingham. It was a cloudy day which can be challenging to begin identifying values. During the critique, we all agreed every kind of weather is great to paint in.
No ... This isn't my work! I went to NYC over the week-end and feasted my eyes on a lot of great art. I saw the De Kooning exhibit at MOMA. I am drawn to Abstract Expression. These 2 artists: John Little and Batty Parsons were at the Spanierman Gallery.
In other news- Kelley MacDonald, painter and blogger extrordianire- is presenting a talk about daily painting and the blogging process, this Thursday at the North River Arts Society. Its a deal at $35 and will be very helpful to those who might want to blog or even those who just want to have a fun evening.
I also had the privilege of meeting Carol Marine last week who told me exactly how to photograph one's paintings...in the shadow of a building, upright, no reflection of any kind including the sky. It works!
This painting is my donation to the Dana Farber fundraising event "A Spirited Affair" held on September 16 in Boston.
Franny Andahazy has organized this event.
Imagine going to a FUNdraising party, enjoying good food and drinks and leaving with your choice of a painting! There will be lots of art to chose from, donated by well known Boston artists
