On a recent trip to Santa Fe we stopped by the Farmer's Market at the newly renovated area near the railroad station. Fabulous produce on display and the best "people watching" in town! These baskets of apples in and out of the shadows and sunlight were meant to be painted!
Karin Jurick's DSFDF current challenge was this overhead view of airport passengers. And what a challenge it was! Check out her site for the original photo. EVERYTHING was in this mix...foreshortened figures, an overhead light source generating unusual shadows, geometrics, and lots of motion. Karin really knows how to push her followers, not to be confused with "pushy" or is she? Whatever the answer, I know that I am trying all sorts of paintings that I ordinarily wouldn't think twice about, and that is a good thing!
Thanks for visiting my blog featuring my most recent oil paintings. I have an art degree from Southern Methodist University and spent about 10 years marketing my paintings through museum art shows, decorators and representation at the Dallas Decorative Center. I put the paints aside for a few years to pursue other business and design interests, but most recently have returned to oil painting.
