We were all so excited about finally starting a new year and putting all our masks, social distancing, checking in etc etc behind us when Omicron raised it's ugly head. Classes have recommenced under strict guidelines to protect both my students and myself from this very contagious variant. At the Landsborough Art Studio I am very blessed to have a very large studio which allows everyone to social distance comfortably.
Personally I have been busy painting up a storm using my pastels and I have been very luck in receiving a set of Unison Portrait Pastels. So looks like a few portraits are coming from behind the easel.
My goal is to paint a minimum of 4 major paintings a month with smaller studies thrown in where I can. The recent wet weather has been keeping me out of the garden so cupboards have been cleaned and sorted and painting have been rescued, binned or reworked. Not even the best artists have successful paintings each and every time. In fact I once heard a famous artist claim that only 20% of his paintings he would be happy with and would offer up for exhibition or sale. Here are January's paintings....why not let me know what you think!
