This painting is entitled ‘Freedom’ (60″ x 40″ x 1.5″) I’m not sure if she’s completely done yet, but she’s getting there. I thought it would be fun for you to see the evolution of her. This spring I am working a lot with collage with a goal to make it fun, fun, fun. I recently picked up some wall paper and am excited to be using that next time I am in the studio.
Over the weekend I received (with great surprise) a wonderful encouraging email from my very first art teacher, Ron Mulvey with whom I had taken my first acrylic painting class over fifteen years ago now, when I lived in Nelson, British Columbia. Oddly enough I still have a few of the paintings I worked on in his class. I remember Ron saying that one of the most important things in making a good painting was choosing quality paints. Here’s what he wrote to me; “Love your work Deb and so grateful your going the distance. Here is a little sketch from the Slocan River at Springtime (shown above). A taste of home!!” Ron lives with his wife Sara on 45 acres by the Little Slocan River in British Columbia. They have a Summer camp for kids in July that is fun and inspirational, details here: http://www.theartabet.com/rons-art-story/. Ron, Thank you for being in touch and remembering me! I am touched!
