David P. Curtis Demo - Kittery, Maine

Today I attended a demo by David Curtis at the beautiful and large studio of Lorwen Nagle.  This was a kick-off event for a 3-day (only $300) workshop coming up June 19 - 21 as a fundraiser for the Kittery Art Association.  For further information contact them, space is still available.

The 2-hour demo/lecture was chuck full of information from the master who delves into all the nooks and crannies of your mind and makes your head spin.  Seriously though, he is an endless source of anecdotes, quotes, references, experience and knowledge, in particular about Cape Ann or the New England coastal atmosphere.

His wife, Judith, author of many art books and articles in art magazines, will give a lecture there on July 12th on The History of American Impressionism.

One Month Anniversary

I can't believe that today is a month since George passed away--I've only painted a tiny bit and that was because of having a painting student.  I do have a couple of commissions that I have to get done, and they will be first on my list.  In the month that has just passed, we went from winter to summer--today is 90 degrees, and I guess that I have spent most of that month doing yard work and enjoying the garden.

Today the man from the electric stair chair company is coming to remove the chair from the runner so I can more easily bring furniture, etc. up and down the stairs.  I'm storing the chair in a closet and had to clean out the closet.  This was a good thing as I removed a dozen suits and now can figure out where and how to donate them.
