Here are some of my students art from the last few weeks that I haven’t posted yet. They do GREAT work!
We have painting class for kids ages 7-12 every Wednesday at 4:15. Why not have your young painter join us?
Here is the painting that I mentioned yesterday without the clouds. What do you think?
This painting I did as a sample for an upcoming private Paint Party. I did two versions, one a little darker than the other. Later I took the cloud out of the 2nd one to show options. I will have to share a photo of that tomorrow as I forgot to take a photo.
Just completed this commission pet portrait of Debo-the Pit Bull, acrylic on canvas, 12″x12″. The owner loved it. :-)
While at the National Gallery this week we got to see an interesting exhibit by Gustave Caillebotte. He is one of the least known of the Impressionist painters not because his work is not worthy of recognition but because he didn’t sell his work. He was independently wealthy and didn’t need to sell.
According to the exhibit information “Caillebotte established himself as an artistic force in the group, as well as a vital organizer who helped curate and finance their exhibitions. During his brief career he also became a significant patron, amassing a collection of more than seventy works, including masterpieces by Degas and Renoir as well as Paul Cézanne, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro, and Alfred Sisley.”
Check out more about this exhibit here.
Here are more photos of the behind the scenes visit at the National Gallery of Art on Tuesday. We saw Degas, Monet, Renoir, Morrisot, and Cezanne drawings and pastels that are not on display but in the archives there. It was a rare and wonderful experience. (See yesterday’s post here for more info.)
Tomorrow I will share the very interesting exhibit we saw by Gustave Caillebotte.
