Mitsuno Reedy Demonstrates for EAA: Update

Well, I am so sorry that you missed it. It was a wonderful and informative demonstration by Mitsuno Reedy. Even if pastels is not your prefered medium, there was a great deal of information and tricks of the trade for portrait artists. The photos don't do the portrait nor the model justice, both are even more beautiful in real life. That is why you should have been there :). Our next demonstrator will be Bob Palmer. He will be discussing his growing mural business. I am sure you've seen some of his work around town.

Mitsuno starts with a charcoal sketch.

Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure that these are real opportunities that I am experiencing. For example this coming week Mitsuno Reedy will be doing a demonstration at the Edmond Arts Institute for the EAA. How lucky am I, right?! She will be sharing some of her techniques and process that she incorporates into her paintings.

Her genres include still lifes, landscapes and portraits. She has a gift at depicting the character beyond the figure's hues and details. Her ability to captures the gentelness in the eyes or the strength in the hands is evidence of this Osaka naive's four decades of artistic experience. She carries with her techniques that taught by Albert Handell, Daniel Greene, and David Leffel, among other distinguished artists. Her models have included historical figures and her paintings can be found in homes and buildings around the globe.
This award winning artist has had her works published included int The Best of Oil Painting, The Best of Pastels, The Best of Pastels II, and Pastel Artist International magazine.

Labor of Love

Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase,   Oil on 5 "x7"   Linen Panel SOLD  Private Collection in San Saba, TX First, I must say that everything I paint is because I absolutely love. I don't like to paint things that I don't find to be attractive to me for one reason or another. Sometimes it's sentimental reasons and other times it's as simple as beautiful colors or the texture. Either way, it's something that I want to capture and stare at for long periods of time. I want to study it and how it affects the environment around it, as in the case of Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase does. In that respect, I feel ALL my paintings are a labor of love.  More often than not, I have to create a painting, wipe it all down, and start all over again if something is just not working. Some never get completed and I just end up painting something totally different on that panel. Then there are some, that I just have to paint, no matter how much trouble they are giving

Roses, Chickens, and Bees

Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around. I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art. During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world. I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the broode
