Painting Together

As we were unable to meet for our usual monthly Saturday we invited members to work from home. It was encouraging to receive messages from members saying they had settled down to start painting at 10am, our normal starting time. Well done Tracy for spurring everyone on.

To take the time to set aside the day made it feel special, and under these unusual times it created a sense of coming together and hopefully lifted the spirits.

We have a few photos of members painting.

Here are the results our our Saturday workshop from home

Suzan’s acrylic on the theme of isolation
Jane’s Vincent Van Gogh inspired blossom oil painting was painted on a 7 x 5 inch block canvas

  1. Well done everyone. I’m still working on my collage/applique of a cherry blosson tree I pass on my daily walks with the dog.

  2. What an interesting post, Susan, I’ve loved reading about all the paintings, and it’s wonderful to see where people were painting on Saturday.
    I really felt a sense of camaraderie on the day, knowing that my art friends were painting along with me. Excellent work everyone!
    I think Ann B’s Easter eggs made with gold doilies are particularly clever, I wish I’d thought of that idea. I will try and remember for Easter next year!

  3. Wow ! What beautiful paintings! What a talented bunch and a great sense of team work going on during these tough times.
    Trying to decide on my favourite but it’s an impossible task!
    Love Holly x

    • Thank you, Holly, I’m glad you’ve enjoyed looking at all the paintings. It really was a lovely day painting with close friends, but at a distance.
