I've completed my weekly course summaries and now heading off into new, and some familiar, projects. But first, a bit of news. Check out this recent post from Cornell's Garden Based Learning blog. Additionally, plans are in development for Cornell to show student work sometime in the fall. More later as this develops.
With all the demands of my coursework, I never got around to a piece for the flower show but my mountain laurel drawing will probably make a good entry for NESBA's The Fells May through July exhibition. Last year I exhibited for the flower show and not The Fells so it's a wash, I suppose. Ah, for the day when I have work ahead of me...
Behind the scenes I have been casually experimenting with "washing" linseed oil. That work is now picking up and should have some preliminary results for posting tomorrow.
In general, it's time to get back to copying Old Masters paintings in oils and doing up a few egg temperas based in part on my coursework exercises. Oh, and there's more coming as well. Stay tuned! :-)
