Thankfully springtime is bursting out all over !
Sweet blossom scents and sprouting greens are everywhere!
My recent trip to Dallas , Texas to the Meadows Museum to study , absorb and be thrilled by the brilliant paintings and drawings of Joaquin Sorolla was tremendous ! I spent two + days at the museum just being with his work and am grateful for the trip! Here is a study I drew from his piece-------"The Young Amphibians" one of my favorite paintings in the show.
I thoroughly enjoyed the comraderie of painting with other artists at the event , the hardwork -----I produced 7 new paintings in three days ----- the wonderful, artful town and it's people and the ending show , sale, and competiton. I was awarded an honorable mention for my painting, "Where the Eagle Lands" , and sold three paintings at the sale . Great event!
