#1090 Borrowed View (Borrowed Title)

The title of this post is the title of Connie Hayes series, so I renamed it  Borrowed View, Borrowed Title.

Today, after my much anticipated visit from artist, Byron Kim, I borrowed a view to paint. As you saw, the studio here is great, but well, it's empty and therefore, it's lacking things to paint. I tried painting the studio wall, the floor, the door, the yellow chair, my studio mate (she doesn't stay put long enough to paint). I went to a yard sale to find things to paint (I seldom paint things I buy, so that was hard for me and I didn't find anything), well, you get the idea. . . so, I was rescued by an idea from a classmate to take up residence in her apartment for the afternoon off site and paint there. So, I was an artist in residence at another student's residence, oh, this is getting confusing. Oh, that painting where is it? Ooops, it is back at the studio, so I'm posting a small flower painting I did first thing this morning. Other News: I sought guidance on my larger paintings during my review with Byron Kim. His input was extremely helpful. I'm keeping a list of all the feedback so I don't forget. More News Still: If you've ever contacted me through the website Daily Painters, I most likely didn't receive it until just now. There was a glitch which is resolved (I think) but I want to apologize to anyone. On the bright side, I just got the emails and I'm having a lovely time reading them, they are encouraging and positive, but I'm not sure if I should be emailing/responding to an email just received that was sent almost a year ago. Any thoughts on email etiquette here? What to do?

  1. Can't wait to see the artist in residence at another residence paintings..Still lifes remain impeccably hauntingly beautiful

  2. Lisa, Your flower paintings are always magnificent, mysterious, and beautiful
    ! I agree, I love the work of Connie Hayes, and her "borrowed views" concept. Would love to hear more about your ideas, and plans, for larger paintings. This might help me, and others who are working with that same challenge. Thank you always for sharing your beautiful work!

  3. Lisa,
    You are simply the best. Better than all the rest. This most recent flower painting reminds me of the ocean. I love so much about this one. "Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose!" JT.
    I also really enjoy your prose. A painter and a writer! Nice.
    Take care.

  4. Thanks for mentioning these two artists. Always nice to find new inspiration and they are both amazing. As is your work!
