Entries in watercolor on canvas (5)
Last year, I was commissioned to create a piece of art that could physically be separated in order to cover a wall mounted television. Experts in home entertainment developed a mechanism that covered the flat screen and then allowed any mounted material to separate exposing the screen for viewing. All I had to do was create a piece of art that could meet their specifications regarding height and width. Here are photos of the finished, installed work.
Workshops are a lot of fun, and a valuable time for artists to spend together improving their craft.
Last week I had the opportunity to direct an artist's workshop of "Watercolor on Canvas" sponsored by the Western Maryland Watercolor Society. This was a two day event in LaVale, Maryland and there were fourteen enthusiastic, talented painters involved.
This approach to watercolor was a "bit out of the box" for these painters to quote Sue Arnson; but, what might have been new to them didn't stop them from turning out some incredibly advanced work.
My thanks to the sponsors and all the participants...particularly to Bobbi Cropp and Nancy Hamilton who knew how to "ring the bell" calling the session to order.
