This is the time of year when Victoria has its annual home STUDIO TOURS. Artists around town open up their homes and let the public view their studio and their art. I really enjoy going to these studios. I like seeing how other artists work and what supplies they use. This weekend was the 10th Annual Oak Bay Artists' Studio Tour. I saw several artists' studios and some beautiful art work. My favourite artist, by far, was Ingrid Fawcett. I almost didn't go to her studio because I'm not a real lover of flower paintings. But I was pleasantly surprised. Her paintings were big, bold, beautiful. STUNNING.
I am inspired to continue painting in my own studio and, who knows, maybe one day I'll be part of the artists' tour. There are two more tours over the next couple of weeks and, another still, in May that I intend to go to. I'll let you know how they go.
MY ART: Finally, here is the painting I've been working on the past couple of weeks. It is similar to this one I showed in a previous post. I'm liking the blues at the moment. This one feels to me like a storm is on its way. You know that feeling when the sky darkens, the wind starts to blow and the trees start to sway. I love that when I am curled up in my warm house. Cozy.
" STORM'S A-BREWIN' "
I am working on getting my gallery up and running. Be patient with me, I'm new to all of this. But let me know if you are interested in anything and I'll work even faster.
If you're able, go tour a studio and show an artist some love. Or just stay home and watch TV. Your choice.
