Went to two studios today. The first was deidre’s. She seems nice enough, but her art was pretty, but some how I thought it was forced, or manufactured. She paints from photos of landscapes and people. Maybe she needs more examples around her home. It seemed like a house tour rather than a studio tour. She’s a very neat painter, none on the floor or carpet, but yet there were cobwebs on a huge raku vase in her living room. I liked her style of painting, sort of abstract and paint loaded brush. I was really impressed with the glass blowing demo. Now thats an art, its a “feel” to doing it, physical rather than temporal in 3d. Would like to retire in Laguna Beach someday.
