With the recent changes in my website, I figured I should write a post to make sure I am still catching all my subscribers. If you subscribe to Artscapes – I would be thrilled if you would leave me a comment or e-mail me to let me know that you received the blog notification either by e-mail or Feed Reader – whichever method you use!
I am finally back in the studio and I have been working on my largest interior painting to date. With all of the distractions, the drawing took me a little longer than planned and then when I put in on the canvas, I realized the 24×30 inch canvas was too short for the composition. So I am just today transferring the drawing to a longer canvas – 24×36 inches.
It is daunting to say the least. I have never approached an interior at this size before… And what’s more, it will be a sort of painting within a painting. I love Wyeth’s paintings of the inside looking out. My painting will use that approach allowing the landscape outside the empty doorway to be more than a decorative background. The painting is from the second floor of the Livingstone/Stephens House so perspectives are a bit crazy too.
I am hoping to share a work in progress at some point soon. I am expecting that it will be near the end of the month before it is finished. Now that I have broadcast that – it had better be!
I will have some exciting announcements soon – I hope. So the blog will be busy in the coming weeks to keep up with the news from the Studio.
Thank you all for bearing with me during the changes!
