Naturalist Painting of a Caribbean Flamingo

Each spring, the Zoo invites a group of 15 juried artists
 to make art "en plein air" (outdoors) at 
Naturally Inspired Paint Out Day. 
This past Saturday, I was fortunate enough
 to have been among the artist selected for this event. 
Here are the two paintings that I did. 
The paintings by each artist will be framed by 
the Great Frame Up and then put on display in the rotunda 
at White River Gardens over the summer, 
then will be auctioned off in late August. 
The money raised at this auction will go to
 support the Zoo's mission of animal conservation.

THE ARTISTS' STUDIO



It's not just a collection of things, 
but a narrative.
Each piece commenting on another in a little dance.
 Everything has it's own story.

Another great day in St. Martin


As I've mentioned before, one of the things that I truly enjoy is talking to other artist, visiting their studios and hearing how they think, learning about their process.
Again, recently, Virginia and I were in St. Martin (St. Martin is the smallest island in the world ever to have been partitioned between two different nations. St. Maarten/St. Martin has been shared by the French and Dutch in a spirit of neighborly cooperation and usual friendship for around 350 years). and stopped by the gallery and atelier of artist, Sir Roland Richardson and his wife, Laura. they are indeed a delightful couple. Very gracious!

Laura Richardson is a renowned poet and Sir Roland is the Father of Caribbean Expressionism. As we arrived, we talked to Laura for a while and she informed us that sir Roland was upstairs with a group of students. While we wandered out in the garden looking at the flower garden, Sir Roland spotted us and asked us to come upstairs. He showed us some of his paintings and discussed his views on color. He talked at length about his process. He paints everything, EVERYTHING, "plain aire." 

If you ever get to Marigot, stop in. you will certainly enjoy meeting them. Also. stop at one of the great French patisseries and enjoy some pastries. petit dejuener.  In past times, I would have suggested that you have lunch at La vie en Rose, but sadly, it has closed.

Check out videos of Sir Roland on YouTube.
