My Secret – My Confession – Artists Reception Saturday at The Marengo Collection

This Saturday, October 4, please join me at The Marengo Collection on 494 S. Marengo Ave. in Pasadena from 2-6 pm for the opening of the 25th annual Day of the Dead event, jointly presented by The Folk Tree and the Marengo Collection.

This painting “My offering – my confession” will be on display at the Marengo Collection for the month leading up to El Dia de Los Muertos, concluding Nov 2.

Today, our local newspaper, The La Canada Valley Sun, did an Entertainment Section feature on me and the artwork, and I’m absolutely thrilled!

    Beautiful, evocative painting that tells a story.
    Rich, vibrant color.
    I think you get a bit more adventuresome with watercolor, K, and that doing watercolors will aid you in adding color versatility and vivacious variety (alliteration not intended but enjoyed!) to your oils and acrylics.
    Nice newspaper coverage for you too!
    Seeing you moving ahead with your art career always encourages me, including when I get the chance to preach “work daily” to others on the same art pathway.

    Thank you Teri, Ann, Jackie and Bill

    Bill, yes I think there is quite a synergy between all the media. I will learn something in one medium that I will then apply in another (even though the manipulation of the paint is different.) It is all additive. Thanks for your support of the “hard work” ethic. I know that you believe in it too – it shows in your work. There is no substitute for study and practice. Whenever I paint in public I hear people saying that they wish they had ‘talent.’ I tell them that I think talent plays a very small role in things. Mostly it’s about learning the fundamentals and then diligently practicing them. And not giving up or getting discouraged. That’s important, too.
