Red Lion Amaryllis

My pastel "Red Lion Amaryllis" is now being exhibited at the Pittsboro Public Library's Chatham Artist's Guild Show to entice people to come visit me during the Tour.

This pastel was painted from an amaryllis blooming next to my window, backlit through curtains....giving a nice gauzy glow behind them. I rarely paint flowers, but this spoke to me.  I nurtured it for months and grew attached to these lovely blooms!


Save the dates!  I'm #24 and open the first weekend of the Chatham Artist's Guild Tour....December 6 &7, from 10am - 5pm in Fearrington Village.


Check out our website for the tour for more info a map and directions here:  http://www.chathamartistsguild.org/portfolio-item/kim-werfel/


Hope to see you there!

New Swan painting

Finished the other swan painting I wanted to do from that same day at Apex Park, NC.  This one is a lone swan....looking so elegant.  Thus the title "Elegance", 12"x19", pastel ©KimWerfel.




Painted on the other half of the Salmon Sennelier La Carte pastel paper using many of the same pastels as the previous "Swans" painting.  Hoping to have them both framed and ready for the Chatham Artists Studio Tour that I'm in on Saturday & Sunday, this December 6th & 7th from 10am-5pm.

Visit our website for more info, images and a printable map of the tour at www.ChathamArtistsGuild.org.

Swans

This piece is from a photo I took at Apex Park, NC a few years ago.  I love that park and used to walk a path around a large man-made pond, about a mile and a half long.  Finally had a free moment to paint something for me instead of a commission (not that I'm complaining!)  The result is this piece....which I'll call Swans for lack of something better...


"Swans" pastel, 19"x12"©KimWerfel

This is painted on La Carte pastel paper...a paper I seldom use, but am finding I really enjoy.  You cannot underpaint on La Carte, but it comes in some really lovely colors.  I pushed the color on this one...something I find myself doing more and more.  I wanted to create that luminous light that glows....to make the swans almost magical.

I plan to do another piece featuring one swan alone.  This may wind up being in a local show, as many are coming up this holiday season.

Thank you for following my blog..

Central Carolina Community College Workshop

I've been behind in my blogging so this week I'm catching up....again, my favorite Egret scored with the CCCC Workshop held Saturday, September 20th from 10-4.  First time giving a college workshop and it was wonderful.  Hope to do it again maybe next Summer.  Here are a few photos from that day!














I really love teaching serious students....especially the elements and principles of design and color.  Tough to do in one day though!  I guess my art teacher days in the school system are still in me :)

Thanks for following my blog!
