It’s Demo Day!

Above – The photo reference I’ll be working from today – this is a sugar/creamer
set from the Royal Doulton China pattern called ‘Petit Point’.
(One of my all-time favorite patterns)

Join me at Galleria in Inglewood today from 1pm-4pm! I’ll be demonstrating my painting style and am always delighted to chat about creativity and painting. Today I’ll be finishing up a couple new canvasses from my ‘In the Kitchen’ series of paintings. These pieces are of some vintage china, collected by my Uncle Ed. I love china, and I have a small collection of teacups stashed in my china cabinet. As I’ve been working on these pieces, many other ladies have shared that they too have a treasured collection of their own. It’s funny, because I’ve learned that although none of us use our china often, we also couldn’t dream of getting rid of them. For me, I think it’s because I view these lovely old pieces as art forms, in and of themselves. I remember spending many happy times admiring the intricate details in both the form and patterns of my mom’s teacup collection. And still, I often pull my own teacups out and get lost in the delicate beauty of the designs.

These pieces are also a little different than the other kitchen paintings I’ve created because they’re smaller. I’d realized that my other kitchen paintings were so large, they wouldn’t fit on any of the walls in my own kitchen! And petite walls & modest-sized kitchens need art too! Sure looking forward to finishing them up and seeing the final result. Hope you can join me there and have a quick visit while I paint.

Thanks so much for reading. Wherever your weekend takes you, I hope it’s a lovely one. Cheryl

PS I’ll also have info available about the new art classes & ‘Wine & Cheese’ workshops I’m now teaching. I’m starting a new emailing list, so if you’d like to leave me your info I’ll be happy to keep you updated about future courses. Can’t make it to Galleria today? Just email your contact info to cherylatemergecreativedotca, and I’ll put you on the list.

Art Demo Today!

It’s going to be a great day! Just getting ready to go to one of my favorite places in the world, Galleria. Will be bringing along my easel and doing a painting demonstration, so if you’re interested in watching me create or learning a bit about painting in oil, stop by. I’ll be there from 1pm until 4:00. And I’m always happy to chat with folks who stop by, and share what I’ve learned about painting and creativity!

Today, I’ll be finishing one I started yesterday entitled ‘Petit Point’, one of my newest still-life pieces for my ‘In the Kitchen’ series. (The painting above is one I created at a demo I did at the ‘Canadian Artists for the Poor‘ art show last week.)
