Silvia Trujillo Summer Newsletter

silvia trujillo summer newsletter painting

Silvia Trujillo Summer Newsletter Lately I’ve been setting my sights for a greater understanding of balance, adaptation, and peace in my life. May all of you be well in these most unusual times, and managing to find some serenity in your lives. Finding beauty wherever I can, and continuing to paint has been my saving grace. Several of my patrons have been acquiring more art from me since there is so much nesting going on. I’m grateful to be able to provide them with new work for their collections, and for their fresh decorating schemes. Attached is a link to my eBay store. Why not take a moment and look to see if there is something you’re attracted to. I will be delighted to hear your feedback!. Also attached is a link to a recent videotape of me doing a painting. I think you will find it very entertaining And

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

Update from Silvia Trujillo

Silvia Trujillo plein air paintings withstudents

Although we need rain desperately, I have been taking advantage of the dry weather by doing lots of plein air work. Several students and I have discovered new places to paint, and have had lots of fun doing it! Consider joining us while the warm weather lasts. It’s really not that difficult, and it is a great way to loosen up if you’ve been feeling like your paintings seem kind of tight lately. The ongoing classes I’m offering (Wednesdays from 2–4pm) at Scrappy Craft are going well. There is a core group of artists who attend classes regularly, each working individually and coming up with some intriguing paintings. Plus, Scrappy Craft offers a discount to students who attend classes there. I must say, I’m super impressed with the extensive inventory of “top brand” art supplies; and all at comparable pricing to the big box stores! Come on over and check
