A Blast from MY PAST

Spring Hat (acrylic) by Faith Goldstein Fine Art

In The Park (acrylic) by Faith Goldstein Fine Art
I wanted to share with you, a "blast from my past" today. These are 2 of the very first paintings I had ever done. If you visited with me in my studio, you may have seen my portfolio which includes photos of several of these acrylic paintings. They were painted, many years ago, under the tutelage of Don Keene; who continues to be a guiding influence in my life. Yesterday morning, I took the drive out to Madison CT, to paint with Don's Saturday morning class, in his studio. We talked first about my desire to create these same marks in oils; and my struggle to think it was possible to do. After a few minutes, I left all 'doubt' behind, and took the next step on my Journey! (Please stay tuned!) (Thanks, also, to Gina, for telling me it can be done!)

after Open Studio event

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

Contemporary Still-life

"High Tea" (oil 16x20) by Faith Goldstein

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!)
