First NZ Workshop

August 2, 2009

On Saturday 1 August 2009 the Paint Basket Studio held an introductory Workshop to launch the new studio. We had 8 students who thoroughly enjoyed themselves in the use of the painting knife instead of brushes in executing a painting. I chose a Venetian scene because it needs a certain amount of dexterity in the buildings, specially the windows and the finer “detail”.

I had 4 students who had never painted before and they were highly amazed at the end of the day with their paintings. One added an article to her  Blog and you can view it HERE

Activity Service at our Church

August 2, 2009

We recently (26 July 2009) had an activity service where during the service there was a trampoline display and two of us were invited to  do some artwork while the service was on. The theme was “New Life”.

Brian Norton was one the right side of the  Hall while I painted on the left side. Here are a few photographs of the event. There are 2 morning services and I completed the Arum Lily during the  1st service and the Hibiscus during the 2nd  service. At the end of the service they were immediately snapped up by some of the congregation and I gave the proceeds to the Church for their  funds. The paintings are shown in a temporary frame for better viewing.
