Private Sessions

wp-1585440428393.jpgYesterday I had a private session with Wilma.  She wanted to paint the O’Keeffe Sunflower she had missed when we did it before.  Didn’t she do a fabulous job!  I also worked with another student who got started on a large painting of her son and dog.  If you are interested in painting a specific subject contact me for a private session.  We certainly have time these days.

Lincoln is Lonely

Lincoln is lonely at The Studio and looking for his friends.  We have been going to work as we are working on commissions that several of you have asked for recently.  And thank you for that.  It’s really difficult to be without an income stream for a long period of time.  Lincoln and I are grateful to those of you who have purchased or ordered art over the last few weeks.  We really, really thank you.  And it is possible to still come paint.  We can space out enough to meet guidelines so if you want to paint something in particular just contact Kelly.  We have a private lesson today and would love to work with others on special projects during this “slow” time.  So make an appointment and come see Lincoln.  He misses you all!!!

Bob Ross Magnet

wp-1585269122211.jpgInstead of posting doom and gloom today, I wanted to share something wonderful.  Yesterday my friend and student, Lauren, stopped by The Studio to bring me a present from Charlotte.  You know Charlotte, Lincoln’s favorite little girl.  She made me a magnet to cheer me up….and it’s her drawing of Bob Ross.  What a special gift….from a special girl.  Thanks Charlotte.  Lincoln misses you.

wp-1585167247855.jpgI am so grateful for those who have reached out asking me to paint your pets now while we are going through this uncertain time.  It is very difficult for a small business like The Studio to go without income for an unknown period of time.  I am trying every way I can to keep afloat.  I am lucky for friends and family who love their pets as I love mine and have commissioned me to paint for them.  These two paintings are going to Georgia.   Some years ago I did a portrait for this young lady’s mom (see it here) and now she asked me to paint her dog, Bear.  This is Bear as a puppy and now as a dog in his 4th year.  He’s such a handsome guy.  Thanks Katie for sharing Bear with me.  The package goes out in the mail in the morning so he’ll be home soon.  🙂   For anyone interested in having a pet portrait painted, contact kwalker@thestudioforlearning.com .  Many thanks!

Art CritiqueWe are still trying every way possible to remain in business when this catastrophe ends.  And while most of you are staying in….and creating….we are going to offer an online critique service.  Maybe you are painting more on your own during this time…either by yourself or with your kids….and you can’t get it “just right”.  We are here to help.  Below you will find the information on how it works.  You can click here to go directly to the link.  If you need assistance with your painting while you are staying in, we hope you’ll consider an online critique.  Thanks!

“A critique is an invaluable component in an artist’s education. Get advice and support by submitting a photo of your work. Maybe you are having an issue with composition; maybe it’s a color mixing problem; or maybe you just need another set of eyes on it to see what it needs. Just submit one photo of the piece of art and get advice to improve your painting. Asking for a critique can be scary but those artist intent on improvement will welcome honest and genuine suggestions. Here’s how it works: Once you purchase a critique package you can submit one photo for critique. If you have a specific question concerning the painting, submit that too. A critique will be given as quickly as possible. (We will check emails and texts several times per day and get some information to you quickly.) Once you apply the critique suggestions to your painting you can submit one more photo of that painting for follow-up.”
1 critique/1 follow-up = $10
3 critiques/3 follow-ups = $25
You have the option of submitting the photo via email to kwalker@thestudioforlearning.com or via text at 540-683-9688.
