This is my attempt of painting from the Donna Zagotta's demo I took the other day.   I took a picture of my daughter for this watercolor painting.  I love the mixed media look, so I added some papers and a touch of oil pastel.

Donna Zagotta's Demo and Lecture

I was so excited when I saw that one of my favorite artists, Donna Zagotta, was in driving distance so I could see her paint and talk in person.  I attended her demonstration and lecture at the Fallbrook School of the Arts in San Diego, yesterday. 

She's extremely talented, and I feel grateful that she shared her knowledge and experience with us.  Unfortunately, I couldn't attend her workshop due to my Mom's visit from NJ, but I was so inspired and can't wait to paint again in the "Zagotta" style.

It's a Wrap!

Not mentioned much here in my blog is that I'm an interior architectural designer.  The reason being is that I just wanted to keep this an art blog.  Today I cross over, basically, because a couple of my pieces will be used in one of our houses. In my haste to get the pieces to the designer, I didn't bother scanning them.  I just thought I was giving them to her to see my progress.  Next thing I know, there they were.  
So, I took  couple of shots during the installation today.
I'd love to show you the whole kitchen, but it was a mess with laptops on the island and cleaning supplies, etc.


This is the whole painting I described in the previous post. There is an appliance garage behind it.

This is on a wall to the laundry room.  My painting is the contemporary one 2nd from the left.  I know you can't see much, but just the collection here looks pretty against the blue wall.
