"when painting is a passion"
Welcome to the 1st blog of many and thank you for taking the time to drop by and take a look at what I am up to. My plan (yes, I do have a plan) is to teach, excite and inform all my painting friends what is happening in the world of the Landsborough Art Studio and my own personal art journey.
So why a blog? Funny I asked myself this question many times before I finally took the plunge. The answer is not a short definitive one I am afraid. The one thing I am sure of is that I love my art and love teaching the process it takes to create beautiful art to others and above all sharing knowledge and my passion.
Thru the blogs you will be offered instructional information, tips and techniques, exhibition opportunities, workshops, demonstrations, en plein air days, urban sketching, challenges, painting retreats, how-to's and also you sharing your experiences and knowledge with others thru our comments facility below.
Let's call my blog a "one stop shop" for all artists interested in arty stuff.
Over the past 30 years I have been holding a paintbrush or pencil on an almost daily basis and teaching students what I can to assist them on their painting journey. Despite these years of experience I am still learning and consistently attending workshops and demonstrations with other artists sharing my new found knowledge with you and it never ceases to amaze me just how much I still have to learn. The day I think I have nothing more to learn is the day they should be locking me away in an old age home for the mentally inept.
I am not a gifted artist and have always struggled to learn the various techniques and skills to produce my art so I understand your pain.
In addition to my love of art I lovingly tend my extensive garden on 3 acres in a country location, love to bits my fur babies Rommel and Storm and of course my precious hubby, travel and adventure to wonderful locations and above all loving life and good friends.
So come long with me on my journey of discovery, sharing together our experiences and skills along the way.
