I'm still chuckling at myself this morning. Do we not give a quick look at our phone messages first thing of a morning? I saw I had a FB notification from Peggi Kroll Roberts with the title "Put These Offenders Away!!" My first and only thought is that she is offended by my oil studies taken from her DVD's. I ordered both sets and have been enjoying painting along with these 30-45 minute DVD's. If she doesn't want someone to paint from them why offer them for sale? Oh the questions running through my mind. This does not sound like the kind spirited and sharing person I met at the Lodi workshop. Maybe someone hacked her account? Later when I got to my computer and went to my Facebook page I see this is an invitation to join her cause: Justice for a special dog and the cry to put the offenders away who did the injury to the animal...Whew! She was not referring to my little oil studies at all.
The palette knife painting above could be my favorite and I'm trying to decide why -- A still life, because it nearly painted itself, good contrast, has some red in it, or is it the palette knife work. I will try another still life with my own set up soon. I've been haunting the thrift shops looking for some items I've probably discarded earlier. I think back to a blue metal coffee pot from Solvang, CA I discarded several years ago..waaah.. doesn't this always happen? Throw it away/donate it and then want it back. It happened when I finally got rid of years and years of dress pattern collecting and then needed them for collage. I was totally blown away at the quantity and quality of the still life items Peggi set up for our first day of studio painting at the recent workshop.
The Figures in Sunlight Lesson is one of Peggi's favorite way of working, figures in bright outdoor light and that is the subject for the upcoming Tucson workshop at the Tucson Art Academy.
