Sami's Art has evolved from many years of varied experiences and experimentation in different forms of art.
Spring is Coming
My daffodils and tulips are peeking through the ground in defiance of the snow that fell last week and the herons are back in Peninsula. The Bath Road Heronry is a local favorite of bird watchers and photographers. From mid-February through June, great blue herons build over 140 nests and raise their young. I have added a Heron Gallery to the portfolio.
Trilogy Wine Painting
Using Painter and the Skip Allen’s Watercolor brushes, I painted in the background of my new Trilogy painting. I also have started sketching the wine bottle trying to decide what I want to do with it before I add it to the painting and I have been playing with how I will build the painting on the watercolor background and what other pieces I will add. I am happy with the background. I love the soft look with the grape vines and hills in the background.
Grandbabies Collage Portrait
Work has not given me as much painting time, but I have changed a few sketches and started on their granddaughter. I am still not sure where it is going but the journey is still interesting. At this time the sketches are just a rough approximation of the subjects. I will finish the sketches on the right side this week and add one more on the left.
Take time to enjoy the beauty around you. Safe journeys, I’ll see you next week.
