20190517_154048.jpgWe used palette knives to paint these beautiful apple blossoms over the last week or so with our international students.  We found that painting with a palette knife is harder than it looks.  Nice work ladies.

20190511_180914.jpgLincoln and I spent the day at Shenandoah National Park at the “Painting in the Park Seminar: Nature as a Starting Place” with Kevin H. Adams.  Kevin was the 2017 Artist in Residence for the park. (Read and see more about that here.) The seminar focused on the challenges of plein air painting with the focus on landscapes.  While the weather was a little damp and cool….and the clouds dropped down low on the top of the mountain so we couldn’t even see our subject for a little while, it was still a terrific seminar.

 

Kevin offered tips and suggestions to improve painting in plein air.

And being in the park is always nice.  There is so much material so I took many reference photos that I hope to paint soon.

20190510_063923.jpgEver since we lost Jed about 6 weeks ago, Lincoln has been going to work with me at The Studio.  Lincoln is 10 years old and had never been alone so the transition to being an only  dog has been difficult for him.  The depression has been horrible.  But he does perk up on Wednesdays when he goes to class.  He likes the ladies at the morning adult class and he especially enjoys all the attention he gets at the afternoon kid’s class but he just waits for the evening adult class.

When my student, Lauren, arrives she often has with her Charlotte, her little girl, who comes in to wait for her dad to pick her up.  And Charlotte LOVES Lincoln and the feeling is mutual.  She gets right down on his level and pets and hugs him and he adores it….and her.  It’s the happiest he is all week.  This week she drew a sketch of Lincoln.  It’s my new favorite thing!!!!
