Cowboy Blues – 11″x14″ Oil on Canvas – SOLD
by Cheryl Peddie

I painted ‘Cowboy Blues’ as a demonstration at Galleria in Inglewood, back in December. This is actually from a picture I took at Gratitude Cafe, in Kensington from the fall. It’s a great little restaurant, filled with lots of unusual trinkets, books, and displays. This coat rack was loaded down with bags, wraps and this awesome hat. The sun was hitting it just right; my perfect subject matter for a painting. If you’ve not been to Gratitude, you’re missing out. Now I’m no vegetarian, but I still found lots to love on their all-veggie menu. I sat for quite some time, just taking in the atmosphere and watching the bikes and shoppers go by. Thanks for reading. Cheryl.

Feb & March Workshop Dates are Set

I’m excited to announce two more painting workshops set for this winter & spring. I’d love for you to join me:

RedUmbrellas-webTues, Feb 26 – 6-9pm: Streetscapes
Most folks love streetscapes. But many are apprehensive to try painting them because of all that detail! We’ll explore ways to simplify them and still create pleasing compositions. Hint: It doesn’t always involve those teensy tinsy brushes!

Wed, Mar 20 – 6-9pm: Unfussy Florals & Foliage
Just in time for the first day of spring! Florals and foliage can easily become stiff, and lose their sense of natural liveliness. We’ll work on ways to depict the delicate freshness of the blooms, while balancing it with their fullness and volume.

Price per workshop: $35 plus GST
What to bring: pencils & sketchbook; art supplies; photo references or any still life objects you’d like to paint from
Located at: Atlantis Framing – 4515 Manhattan Rd SE, Calgary
To register or for more info: Call Atlantis Framing at 403-258-0075 or me, Cheryl Peddie, at 403-270-9755

Thanks so much for reading – you all are yet another reason why I paint. Best, Cheryl.
