Thank you for coming to the Trunk Show with Melanie Edwards at Heather Boutique. I enjoyed talking with everyone. I learned firsthand how Melanie creates her beautiful collages. She is overflowing with creativity. Check out her facebook page to see some of the art she creates. Melanie's Facebook Page. I got to spend the day at Heather's, also a treat. Heather's Facebook Page Thank you, Heather, for inviting me to do this show.
Kathy, if you are reading this I bought gifts for the girls' teachers made by Melanie. I'll mail them to you.
On top of this, I got to talk with people about art, my favorite subject. I apologize if I talked your ears off about the subject.
PLEIN AIR PAINTING
My focus from now until next winter is painting outside as often as I can. So far there about 6 Fredericksburg painters who go out every Wednesday morning. We've been to Chatham 2 times. It's a lovely place to paint. The first time was very cold and my husband and I didn't venture very far from the car. I still stuck by my plan to do a couple of color studies, then do a studio painting at home.
In the next couple of blogs, I'll include my steps with photos. Here is a pic of the painting. Tomorrow I'll include the studies and drawing.
