Just having some fun with the title on this one! ...I really had fun at the First Harvest Show in the Overlook Lodge at Bear Mountain State Park! It was fun to hang out with the other artists, and have some surprise guests show up to support the event. Good food, good drink, good people, and a great view of the mountains, Hessian Lake, and the Hudson beyond. I'm so happy to have discovered this hidden gem, so close to home... open for catered affairs and overnight retreats. (I could use one of those!)

Once again, I've had the chance to talk with some wonderful people, who came out to support the artists, during New Rochelle's ArtsFest '09. It was a cold, rainy week-end; but the warmth of human kindness and wine, were overflowing! Thank you, all, (merci, to some) who braved the weather, and the lone trolley(!), to support this event. Hope to see you, on the Journey again, soon! -Faith

This is another painting that I had started some time ago, in JC English's Traditional Still life class at the Pelham Art Center. It just needed those little red flowers on the teapot, to bring it to life! I also like my placement of that HIGH red bottle, going off the canvas. I guess that's what makes it a Contemporary still life. (Dare to be different, on this Journey!)

I bet you never expected to see a new post so soon! If you visited my studio during New Rochelle's First Artwalk on August 6, you might remember seeing this painting unfinished. Well, I finally went back to it ... so here it is! I am working hard at choosing the elements I want to include in a painting, and editing the rest out. It is a challenging task, but I am the most pleased with the paintings that I have done this with. (See "Pool View" in an earlier post.) I hope you enjoy this "journey", and your own, today!

I began this painting in a traditional still-life class, taught by JC English, at the Pelham Art Center. In preparing for last Thursday's Open Studios, I wanted to work on it a bit more, and have it ready to show. "He" was still so wet, I wasn't able to frame him out in those great dark brown lattice strips I cut and stained personally! I'll make sure he's 'fully dressed' for the next event... or you may see him hanging in the local area somewhere! (I'll let you know if that happens!) In any case, this is 'his' internet debut! I hope you enjoy him as much as I do!

Two of my 3 GREAT studio-mates, Janet & Michele, and me, with Mayor Bramson!
What an awesome experience! I spoke with so many wonderful people. Actually talked more than I ever have in my life on any given day... and it was so much fun! If you are new to my Blog, and I met you yesterday... thank you so much for stopping in to see my paintings, and to say hello! You all made my day; and for an artist who'd (thought she'd) rather be painting, that's not easy to do! (You all know what I mean!) I wish I had taken photos of everyone who came in to visit my studio space... but I hope you enjoy these for now. And I hope to see you again on October 17 & 18 for the next Open Studios event! (I heard it's going to be really big!)
Thanks for 'stopping in' on my Journey! -Faith

I did a marathon painting day in my studio-space, yesterday. After a devastatingly bad first try at plein air, I needed to go back to basics and put more thought into the painting before I actually picked up the brush. Drawing a value study, and deciding on my color palette ahead of time is the best way to approach a painting. It may seem obvious to some, to do more "thinking" ahead of time; with perhaps, a little less emotion (right brain) for now. In the future, maybe, the thinking part is faster ........and the "emotional marks" will fly!

This is how I spent my day... preparing for a plein air class by painting my first landscape. I used a reference photo taken at Green Cay Nature Preserve. The palette shows here more intense than the actual painting which is a little softer.
Overall, I am very happy with the result! What a fun way to spend the day!
