artist studios

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.
