Last week I went to a wonderful two day workshop for "Atmospheric Landscapes" held in West
Hartford. There were a total of approximately 20 of us at various skill levels who had a wonderful time and learned a great amount on how to use different substrates to paint with oils.
Will was very helpful and patient to teach us as much as he could, often expounding on all sorts of helpful hints. I consider this to be one of the best workshops I have ever attended. In the two days we painted 5-7 pictures, none really finished since there had to be some drying time. The results were varied but all considerably proficient. As soon as I finish them I will post them in the landscape section and put at least one here to show the progress.
I will be entering a juried show @ Gallery 53 on June 16 , with reception between 1-3pm.
I just want to comment on Mary Jane Q Cross because I am so taken with both her and her work. She has overcome great physical barriers and shines so brightly and with great humility. I recently went to a woman's luncheon at an area church and she gave a lecture and brought a dozen of her original paintings as well. She has been recently inducted into the largest on line museum (artrenewal.org) as one of the few living artists to receive this distinction. It is well worth your time to look her up. While the reproductions on line are alright the real impact of her work has to be in person. If ever you get a chance to see her work live take it-you will not be disappointed!
