THE STUDIO IS CLOSED, HOWEVER YOU CAN STILL
PAINT WITH ME VIRTUALLY
"Study - Among the Pharroahs" 16x20 inches, oil on canvas, $279.
Those of you who know me, know I love to teach. I also really love to learn. I did this painting as a study with another instructor, just before the virus hit and everything came to a standstill. I have found the pandemic has caused me to struggle with continuing to create. Having all of this year's shows cancelled stalled my incentive for producing new work. I did, however, repaint my studio, organize, and do everything imaginable but actually paint.
I am starting to feel like creating again, but it really hasn't been easy.
Like many others, I've been holding my breath and just watching the numbers of new cases in disbelief. I am worried about the long-term effects of the pandemic for not just us artists, but all small businesses that need to get through this extraordinary time.
Getting used to the new normal hasn't been easy, but at least it feels possible now...
I would love to help you on your art journey - contact me for lessons, to purchase an original painting
or for help with creating something specific for your space.
When you purchase work from a local artist, you are purchasing a little bit of them... Consider the hours of time in practice and experimentation that came before the piece was ever created. Consider each brush stroke, created with loving thought and care. Consider each decision about colour and composition.
When you buy from a big box store, you may get a painting that matches your decor, but you are not getting something unique that has been made with loving care. When you buy from one of those places, you are not supporting your community, you are supporting the perpetuity of a corporation that is only concerned with the bottom line.
It's about more than just price.
