It feels like our normal day in the studio. Eight to ten hours a day, painting, planning and enjoying our local public radio station. Four easels going at once. Moving between landscapes and portrait work. Nothing new.....
But, like most of you we are restricting our movements outside the studio in an attempt to "flatten the curve" of Covid-19 virus contamination. We limit our social media intake and don't focus too much on the constant flow of news reports and NEVER look at our meager stock holdings.
We paint to get through, and yet, we paint anyway so life hasn't changed much for us.
Except- you aren't here..... That will change and we will once again enjoy having people visit.
Stay safe, stay well and listen to your community leaders advise. Together we will stop this virus from spreading.
Summer in the studio is usually busy for us. Scurrying off to catch the light for en plein air painting, traveling here and there to see other artists events and getting work finished for our own shows tends to fill most of our days.
This summer has been an extraordinarily busy one and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon.
Shall I go on or are you as tired as I am now? Fall will bring more activity and more exhibit opportunities so I’ll save those for another day.
The Opening Reception for the Solo Show's at Southern Vermont Art Center was a huge success! So many people turned out to meet the ten artists selected to participate in the event.
It was wonderful to meet so many new people and make some wonderful connections for future exhibits.
Artists Ruck Goldreyer, Amy Hook-Therrien, Danielle Klebes, Lynn D. Pratt, Chalice Mitchell, Terry Teitelbaum, George Van Hook, Susan White, Susan Bayard Whiting, and Robert Whiting each are exhibiting in the Solo Shows. It's a great mix of medium and genre. Don't miss this exhibit. It is up from May 25 until July 14.
I wanted to share a great event the CiviCure is putting on May 4th.
Here is a link to the PDF poster.
Its a great event and a wonderful cause. Do Not Miss It!
