APRIL = SPRING
I have started to toy with the idea of spring being right around the corner. Spring for me has always been the turning point of the year. I feel that my lungs are able to fill with fresh air and my creative muse is stretching and waking from the slumber of winter. It is the time for fresh outlooks and ideas. Even thought it is a little cool out today the bright sunlight is proof that winter is waving goodbye.
The fact that the weather will continue to improve makes me want to escape from the studio and become more social. I am playing with the idea of opening up the studio Monday evenings between 6:00 and 10:00pm for people to stop by for a small impromptu gathering with wine, snacks and lively discussions about “Art”. It is always nice to be able to bounce ideas between fellow artists and see what magic happens. I will keep you posted on what date this event will start.
Also next Monday, April 8, I plan on going to the Art Institute to see the Picasso and Chicago exhibit. Let me know if you would like to join me. I plan on being down there about 10am so I can come back in the late afternoon and work in the studio.
So what is happening in the studio, you might ask…
There are two new canvases that I have underpainted and starting to work on the concepts and general ideas. So I will post images in the near future… but for now it will be a mystery… for you and me! I am also exploring different venue to host my artwork this year (in other words. I am looking for shows. I am running out of wall space in my apartment so I need to start selling some of these pieces).
So it time to switch over to the painting clothes.
The canvas is staring at me and needs attention.
Have an amazing day!
Sounds like the birth of spring is a fertile time that inspires your artistic play and exploration.
Spring is a time of renewed energy, an awakening. New life. Enjoy!
