A friend gave me information on a studio in Sarasota that looks incredible – a bit of a drive for me here in Largo, but worth the travel. The Southern Atelier has workshops, sessions, classes and open studios at a variety of times during the week. They teach the classical style of portraiture, figure painting and landscape as well as plein air painting. I plan to make the drive next week to check out the facility and see how I can put some open studio time there on my regular schedule. http://thesouthernatelier.org/
My new painting, “Bob” is coming into its own and I am excited with its progress. I will need to put in some serious studio time this week to complete it and get it posted on my website and blog – hopefully within the next two weeks. I have cluttered my workspace with dead dolls and I will be finding new homes for them tomorrow with any luck. Anyone interested in Living Dead Dolls is welcome to inquire about what I have left that I can part with.
My husband and I took my parents out to dinner for their March birthdays tonight so we are all overstuffed and have a nice wine buzz happening… I will probably head off to slumber sooner than my body is used to. An espresso may be in order to finish my tasks tonight… This is a choice of two best friends, here – coffee or Temperpedic… tough one, as they both give me such pleasure… Espresso it is!
