"Stacked" --- SOLD



In case you're wondering, the red thing is one of the small bell peppers from the other day. I painted this yesterday because I knew I'd be spending all of today on a large painting. And I am so frustrated because I ended up wiping the entire thing - TWICE! That's 12 hours of painting, and I've nothing at all to show for it. I HATE it when that happens. Argh!!!

Good news though, I'm teaching a workshop in March with Karin Jurick. In case you haven't drooled over her work like I do every day, please check it out - she's amazing! Here's all the info:

KARIN JURICK & CAROL MARINE - PAINTING A DAY WORKSHOP
March 14th, 15th & 16th, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

We're only taking 16, so sign up quick. It'll be a blast!

I can relate to the feeling of painting for hours and having nothing to show for it. This one however is very nicely done. And that should be one dynamic workshop with you and Karin - wish I was in closer proximity!

Hell-O!

I signed up already! I was going to try to get in an art festival in March and it ended up being that exact same weekend. When I found out the deadline for entry had already passed it was a sign from God! Can't wait!

Hi Carol,
Thanks for sharing the comments about spending 12 hours painting and having nothing to show for it. I was just wondering yesterday if any of the "greats" (you and others) actually have paintings which don't turn out, that you throw away, or that you post as encouragement to those of us who are struggling to improve. I really appreciate your honesty!
All the best in 2008.

Carol, How I wish I lived closer. I would love to take a workshop from you and Karin, doesn't get any better than that. Good luck, Barb

Take lots of photos in your workshop, Carol! We love seeing what goes on there! What an incredible team you two will be!

One of the things I like about oil painting is how similar it is to my work as a writer. When I have to throw away an entire chapter (or an entire book, which has happened!) I tell myself that the work was not wasted. I HAD to write all of that in order to get to the point where I could write the next part. It's all part of the process, and it's never wasted--like the scaffolding on a building, just because you end up knocking it down doesn't mean it wasn't necessary in the first place.

At least, that's what I tell myself....

Totally great! I always love your cups, such a great balance between painterly and control. I like the green reflections on your handles.

Just love your style! The brush strokes are so defined and edgy. I hope it's ok if I link you to my blog, I'd like to keep up on your works.
