I am really happy that Redberry Art is back again in its great revised format (thanks to my internet gurus).
We have been enduring a record breaking winter this year, into our fifth month of snow and more to come. Spring is going to be very welcome when it finally gets here, but we will be hoping for a slow melt. I have been making use of the indoor time in working on a number of new paintings. They will be part of our Artists' Workshop annual spring show next month, well, really just four weeks away. I am finishing up a number of works in oil so they have time to dry and then be varnised and framed. This year we are trying a variation on our 'miniatures' board. In the past, members of the group would display small paintings together on one panel. For this show, we are all doing paintings on the same size of canvas, 6 x 6 inches, and will have them all the same price. It will be interesting to see how this works out. Here are my four that will be on display.
I hadn't done any florals for quite a while, and after looking at a white landscape out my window for months on end, I wanted to go back to my garden this way.
In June, we will be participating in Art Trek 2013, this year with eight studio groups. We have added three new studios, so will have over 50 artists involved in the tour this year. Very exciting. You can keep track of what is happening on our Art Trek Facebook page.
I'll soon be putting up photos of the new pieces I have been working on. Also I have some new sites and information to share.
