Thank you to Cindy Lotzer and the staff at Waterford Senior Living on the first day of the WI State Fair. It POURED after about 1 1/2 hours… and the spirits were really high – even after the rain. Thank you to the wonderful residents that allowed me their time as I sketched them out. The rain interrupted the last portrait of “Trudy” but we met back up inside in the dry space. I need to draw FASTER and in a dryer space.
Thank you to all of the visitors and staff at Taliesin. Today I had an opportunity to create a couple of painting. This painting is just beneath Frank Lloyd Wright’s personal Studio at his home. I have one smaller one, a 40 minute sketch, that I’m going to finish up and post later. Thank you again to everyone who said hi and appreciated my work. I hope you all enjoyed your tour.
A picture perfect summer day in Waterford. Here is my newest watercolor painting.
If you are ever in the Spring Green part of Wisconsin, or are just looking for a destination for the day, Taliesin is the place to go. (Not to be confused with the House on the Rock – which is a lovely place I am sure.) My plein air artists were treated to a beautiful and insightful tour of the house and studio of Mr. Wright in Taliesin as well as the school of architecture (and lunch) at the Hillside School (information about the school itself can be found HERE). Thank you to Caroline and Becky for the hospitality and warm welcome (again). Thanks also to the hardworking artists who were able to paint, draw, and get to meet some of the folks at Taliesin. AS for me… I got two watercolors done (one is now in the collection of Effi Casey, an instructor at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture – Taliesin) a painting of her house on the Taliesin Grounds.
So glad to start the Plein Air Summer Studio at my high school. 11 kids – most of whom showed up. It was a great experience. Check out Facebook.com/ArtWithKorb to see the images of my artists and http://www.ArtWithKorb.com to see the day to day plans and ideas. Here is my day’s work – just one painting of “The Curve in the Road”.
With a new approach to a similar theme, I am developing works based on quicker movement and harsher changes in direction. Life sends me in new directions in aspects I have invested so much heart and design soul into… the work needs to express some of the humanness life offers and the harsher and contrasting directional change. These 5 works are in porgress, layers of additional planes of color are in mind… but this is process and I love sharing and thinking about the process.
Today in Kenosha I came to protest Donald Trump. Rather than tons of photographs, I made a series of drawings, met a lot of great people (from both sides of the aisle) and shook a few hands. Here are my drawings… one of which is in the proud possession of Deputy Campbell. Thanks. (I was only told to stay on the sidewalk once… maybe twice.)
The helicopters were pretty cool.
