Late night

Here is a painting I started yesterday. I have worked two days on it now. I hope to finish it tomorrow. It is 26"by 29". Here I am below painting it.

It is nearly 2:00 in the morning. I am on the painting trip to a New England coastal village. I was up real late because Ignat Ignatov did a portrait demonstration tonight at a gathering of artists. Jeremy Lipking streamed it live with his i-phone. I think it will be available online. When I know more about that, I will get back to you. I took lots of photos, it was real dark in the room so they may be just OK, but I will post them. I have enough to document the painting from start to finish.
Announcing Snowcamp 2 which will be held February 5th, 6th and 7th. The first workshop is filled and I will run a second. Go here to sign up. Class size is limited to ten only, this is a small intense workshop at a beautiful inn located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Loved watching Iggy's Demo.

Your street scene is terrific. Once again I find myself liking things I probably not have seen as worthy of painting. Can you do a post on seeing the poetry in the commonplace?

MCG said...

Yeah, that was fun seeing you on the demo video! This has been a surprisingly surreal experience watching painters who live out here painting in a world I'm from back there, and painting with a painter I've been following through his blog. Life in the 21st century feels bizarre sometimes.

I guess I will se if I can get it to run.

Stapleton Kearns said...

It is inspiring, There is so much talent here!

Stapleton Kearns said...

That is a good suggestion. I will try to remember that. Remind me.

It is really very strange sometimes. The ability to broadcast a TV show for a hundred watchers is really something.
