Art Inspiration: How to Paint a Rose and Artist Coaching Sessions

 


Hello My Fellow Art Lovers- 


One of my favorite things to paint are roses.  For me they symbolize delicate beauty.  We use them to celebrate the stages of life.  They are vibrant and alive!


When my grandfather's rosebush blooms every year I am reminded of him.  

He planted gardens everywhere he lived, even in the deserts of Afghanistan.  That's me with him in his garden in Fredonia, New York.


A few years ago I created a *free* online class called How to Paint a Rose


I invite you to take it for free on my Teachable online class site.

On it I explain step by step how I created this....



If you want to learn to paint flowers in person join me for my May class Learn to Paint Flowers at Studio Alchemy.

Art Inspiration: The Face of Our Ancestors

 

Hello My Fellow Art Lovers- 

"The ancestors have called us here. We belong to their lifeline."
-John O'Donohue 


 Abuela

I've been thinking a lot about ancestors.  I can feel the care that they took to raise every family member that came before me.  I am curious about what they believed and how they lived.  

"Each home hosts the arrival of history.  It is the cradle of one's future."
-John O'Donohue




Veronica's family business (RGR Painting LLC) helped to paint my home studio. In return I painted a portrait of her beloved grandmother.  

Meanwhile I am becoming more curious about my own ancestors, the Celtic and Pictish ones who built stone circles and left mysterious carvings like this...


I'm sure that most of their artwork is gone.  Things like wreaths don't hold up over the years.


But their influence over me continues.  Each new generation is pushed forward with the love of the last one.


"May you know the eternal longing that is at the heart of time. 
May you listen to your longing to be free
."
-John O'Donohue
