Painting Workshop with Jesse Reno! :-D

Image

I’m heading to Portland later this week for 5 days of painting with Jesse Reno.  This will be an advanced workshop in his studio.  I can’t wait!  It will be the third workshop I’ve taken with him.  I love his teaching style and painting philosophies.  

I’m looking forward to posting new work and photos from the trip.  See you all soon!

By the way, I will be participating in the Wedgwood Art Festival this year.  More on that next week.

Lost in My Mind

Heather Carr painting acrylic lost in my mind girl lady woman sad melancholy thoughts daydream I finally got a decent photograph of this piece… so here it is!  Lost in My Mind, a self-portrait.  I finished it in late winter.  My inspiration was a sketch I found by Klimt.  The painting is acrylic on a 30″ square canvas.

Paintings From The Brig

I tried filming myself painting while over at the Brig on Friday.  I crafted a makeshift tripod for my phone using a paper towel roll, a yogurt container and some tape.  It worked, sort of… I gathered more footage at home and created this with iMovie’s trailer maker….

Here’s my new work in progress… Lost In My Mind

This is a piece of a new painting that I am finishing up.  I’ll let you see the whole thing after I make a few more decisions…. and remember what I was going to call it, dang it!  That’s gold leaf around the face.  The writing is in Russian…  Hope you like it! 🙂
