RANDOM THINGS FROM INDOORS

Hello from The Great Indoors.

These are some things I'm doing.

VAWAA ONLINE - LIVE EVENTS

IN THE STUDIO

Live from Philadelphia, United States

Why do so many fast food restaurants use orange in their brand? What do the colors of the national flag of Ireland stand for? Why is the Virgin Mary always depicted in blue? Our reaction to color is instantaneous - we make unconscious connections between color and culture, society, media saturation - and, of course, feelings about color can be deeply personal and are often rooted in our own experiences or associations.

Join VAWAA Artist and fine artist Clarissa on Sunday, July 12, at 12 PM EDT, for a fun talk and introduction to the meanings behind color - to convey narrative and cultural significance. Using global culture, pop culture, art history and film as subjects, we'll examine several color systems, noting their meanings and applied uses as visual language. No prior experience required, all levels welcome!

I have a new studio, just moved and am in the seemingly endless process of setting it up in the most -I WILL GO THERE TO DO MY WORK - kind of way. I seem to be moving away from wax in my own work for a bit and doing a lot of drawing, and oil sketches.  As for what I'd like to draw and paint, I'm especially interested in crowd scenes at the moment, so am pulling all kinds of images from everywhere. vintage photos, screen captures from Netflix, you name it. I'm an image hoarder.
