Silvia Trujillo – Back to Teaching and Art

Silvia Trujillo Forest Path painting in oil

I’ve been thinking about you, and sending you all well wishes during these most unusual and challenging times. Obviously, I have not been teaching (except for a few online critiques), but missing it much. I hope you have found the inspiration, time, and effort needed to continue to produce art in whatever form that has taken for you. I’ve managed to do several plein air works, and a studio piece here and there. Also, I completed a commission of a pet portrait. See the attached examples, and tell me if you recognize any of the locations 🙂 Artist Attic/ Scrappy Craft is now open, and I can resume Wednesday classes. Of course there will be precautions, sanitation, and distancing measures being taken. We want everyone to feel safe! If you are a returning student please let me know if you will like to return on Wed, May 20 , and

Are we there yet? COVID update from Mindy Carpenter

Are we there yet? Close? No? Okay, let’s look at art instead and laugh a little and count our blessings even when we’re feeling the weight of our new normal. I’m like you, sheltering in place, probably doing similar things as you, like Zoom meetings, rearranging the sock drawer, watching Netflix, slow cooking, fast eating, walking the dog, patting the cat, cleaning the junk drawer, reorganizing every closet, sending mail, painting, working on my business, staying connected and obsessively consuming the news and a variety of funny inspired memes. We will get through this. And the daily ups and downs are profound….for instance, in a cosmic timing trifecta, I had a book, catalogue and greeting card launch all on/around March 15th. Yup, The Day It Started.

Three Cats

Cats are one of my favorite subjects. I think it most appropriate that I start of my “FB Art Challenge” with some kitties. I was tagged to do the challenge by artist and friend Myrna Wacknov.  The challenge is to post three paintings per day for five days.  I get to tag other artists each day. I think […]

“Just A Taste”, New Painting

Imagine going to an art walk, reception or opening event.  Paintings are your passion. You are dressed with distinction and elegance. You walk into the well lit gallery space.  You hear the sweet sounds of a string quartet playing Bach, Mozart or Vivaldi.  Or, perhaps classical guitar. Stunning paintings are hung neatly.  You feel invited […]
