Scenes from My Kitchen

February 10, 2009

A good antidote to a bad day’s oil painting – some quicky sketches, done while watching TED talks in my kitchen. Tomorrow I’ll see if I can do something with the landscape I’m struggling through for my oil painting class!

    I must say that these glimpses of a day, a place are my favorite subjects of yours. I love how you achieve such vibrancy of color. I have such a hard time getting intense color even when I feel I am not using too much water!

    Your art is always so beautiful, colorful and full of life!

    I LOVE the tomato! It seems like summer. I agree that I am happy to see these vibrant sketches…. These are where your real life shines through!

    You’re very adept at switching back and forth between mediums (media?) I love the last one in particular with it’s fabulous palette. These are great, Casey!

    I always love your sketches. Fun to see them with the oil touches–so happy and so bright.

    I love seeing your inimitable water color sketches, always. But your oil paintings are really coming along. What a productive year you’re having already!

    Isn’t TED just fabulous! I always head there when I’m needing a bit of inspiration / motivation / brain food!

    Casey, I love these beauties! and I watch TED too.

    I love the juicy sketches!

    Fabulous sketches and fun to glimpse into your kitchen!

    Did you know that in olde England (Tudor times) tomatoes were called ‘Love Apples’? It probably goes back farther than that.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Hi Casey, thank you for your comments on how to fix my clementine sketch. Your advice, as always, was dead on. Thanks for taking the time to pass on your experience and wisdom. You rock!

    I missed this celebration of watercolour. Gorgeous. I think the best thing about trying a new medium is that it is like getting out of school when one goes back to the familiar.

    Particularly taken with the saucepans. And as everyone has already said – wonderful wealth of colour, Casey.

    Oh, I am watching TED talks this last week. They mentioned in an article in the Sydney Morning Herald about the Elizabeth Gilbert one, and I thought she had a very interesting take on creativity and genius.
