"Carol's Valentine Roses" SOLD
12x12 acrylic still life on gallery wrapped canvas
I know my last 2 posts were about an oil painting workshop at my friend Dena's ranch but when my favorite painting duo California couple is in town I just have to go. Robert and Kate Burridge are in Arlington at the Upstairs Gallery giving two 3 day sessions in aqua media (watercolor and acrylic) and I've attended the first three days, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Bob and his pears
I've painted some pears along with Bob but the above painting is a commission for a friend from my Tarleton State College (University) days in Stephenville, TX. Carol's Valentine Roses.. A hint to the other Purple Poo readers from the 50's. You will know this family as he was our cheerleader and Carol is his beautiful wife.
This was my 12th Robert Burridge workshop. I've been hooked since I saw his coffee cups on the cover of a Cheap Joe's catalog years ago. I took my first workshop with him in 2006 at Dena's ranch and I've learned something in every one of them, met some great friends, and practiced painting. To see a new video of him in a Tucson abstract acrylic and collage workshop click HERE.
On his website there are two new DVD's that came out in November that I've added to my collection, Abstract Painting and Collage and Painting Abstract Landscapes and Trees. If you can't get to a workshop, studying along with Bob in one of his DVD's is the next best thing.
As an added bonus in the workshop, 4 other Canvas by Canvas members were in the first session, Maryann Stephens, Barbara Hackney, Elizabeth "Betty" Taylor, and Margie Whittington. There wasn't much visiting going during our painting time but we enjoyed great lunches and made last minute plans for our big Sunday reception. Our show "A Few of Our Favorite Things" features new works by Canvas by Canvas and selections from our individual work. I have about 40 personal pieces in the show.
