I study with 3 great artists on a fairly consistent basis. Stanley Goldstein almost every Monday night. Tim Horn once a month for critiques and at least once a year with Peggi Kroll Roberts. Perhaps you see Peggi's influence here. Well, at least you see her daughter Ali in the forefront.
I brought this little painting into our critique session this past Monday. I won't state what I thought I needed to correct but it was suggested by Tim to do this as a larger work. I think I will!
If you are a friend of mine, then you know I am annoying! Whenever someone tells me they are traveling or going to a function, I don't say "Have a good time!", I say "Take pictures!" My friend Kristie is always on the lookout for subject matter for me. She recently took this shot in her neighborhood. Apparently, she takes her assignment seriously! Thank you Kristie!
My friend Birgit used to live in a hundred year old house. I loved the interior. I have been lucky enough for her to occasionally pass on photographs that I have used as reference material. This is one of those shots!
