A Cool Corner by Julie Riker


8x10 oil

This was painted on Saturday at Lindenwood, site of the Harrisburg Symphony Showhouse, in the relaxing and colorful garden behind the outbuildings.  I was interested in the greenish/yellow glow on the white building, reflected off of the grass and plants.

This painting is available in the Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters gallery which is located in the upper level of the barn.  There is no charge to visit the barn and explore the showhouse grounds.
Entrance to the house is $20.

Hillside", pastel, Tatiana Myers.

"Hillside", 8 x 10", Pastel on U-art 400.

Today some of our SVPAP gathered together to paint at Lindenwood.
Place is gorgeous, people are very friendly, weather is great,
just add some pastels to it and You have a perfect day!
This is my today's painting effort.
I was captured by play of light and a shadows on a hillside
and painted my story of it.
Had truly great time in it! Looking forward to go back

Why We Stand Up Straight. Shelby Pizzarro. Digital Collage

Why We Stand Up Straight Digital Collage   
There is just something about images...still and moving...in black and white that lifts my soul. I guess I'll always be a "Turner Classic Movies" kind of gal at heart. The drama and the romance the absence of colour brings intrigued me in the past as I am certain it will in the future.

The current Lunagirl Moonbeams challenge is Black & White. This time, the challenge is shared with Vicki Romaine's challenge Blog, The Cheerful Stamp Pad. The selection of images from Lunagirl's collection are always inspiring. Looking through the collage sheets my eye was drawn to the women in beautiful dress.

What struck me was their posture...straight, proud, elegant. I loved the smile of the woman wearing the cape. Who was the recipient of her cheeky grin? Did she have a secret? I built the collage around this woman. From my own digital ephemera collection I chose a landscape I thought would have a mysterious feel when converted into black and white. And then I found my air ship! Perfect. I love the concept of the lighter-than-air ships, gracefully floating while hiding a metal frame. And why did the women stand so straight? I couldn't resist adding the corsets...just a peek into the private lives of our ladies. Like the airship, they are visible sophistication covering a solid foundation. And often times, the way women balance the explosive and the tranquil aspects of life is a secret only they know.

But isn't this the story of so many women? We are grace, cleverness, and power in equal measure. What is your secret?

8 x 10" Pastel on Wallis paper.

This is my first pastel work what I did after returning from Cape Cod in my studio.
I got some really beautiful photos to work with and now will pull some of those
out and paint... Of course AFTER all the commitments related to Camp Hill Plein Air.

I'm looking forward to go back to Cape at September,
do some more exploring and bring back even more material to work with...
Mean while I have enough and just looking forward to paint...

Lindenwood - Harrisburg Symphony Showhouse opens!! by Julie Riker


Lindenwood
16x20 oil

The Harrisburg Symphony Showhouse will open this Thursday night 5/21 with a special preview party and tour.  It officially opens to the public on Friday the 22nd and runs through June 14.
This has been a big but very rewarding project for me.  In addition to creating the painting above which is being used for promotional materials,  I've also taken a space on the third floor and created an artist's studio.  

If you are able to visit you will enjoy.  There is plenty to see - from the landscaped grounds, designer rooms, boutique, cafe -- Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters will be painting on the weekends and exhibiting work in the barn.

"Dune-Dancers", pastel, Tatiana Myers.

 Last week I spent painting at Cape Cod with group of pastel painters
mentored  by Richard McKinley.
It was a time before the tourist season is starting, so we had very little interruption
by whoever was showing at our painting sites... What were beautiful.

This is one of the painting what I did on location.
Most of us were staying right on the parking lot of one of local beaches.
We were surrounded by water, dunes, blooming Beach Plum bushes
 and some not-invited personalities what were trying to 
hand out some of brochures of religious nature...
(We all know well those polite guys who usually working in small groups of 2 or 3,
always neatly dressed and just a bit too sweet)
Soon their brave troopers gave up on us and move away to some place other....
We were continuing working on our paintings and enjoyed the scenery.

Richard did his demo later in a day and ironically we ended up
painting the same subject, what was a group of pine trees on a top of the dunes.
After I finished working on my painting I decided not to do another,
but went  around with my camera hunting for more beautiful  views.
Now as I'm back home it will be more paintings coming.

"GARDEN GAZEBO IN SPRING" An Original Pastel Painting by Clare Klaum





Thank you Cecelia for inviting us to paint in your neighbor's garden last week!  So many beautiful spots to pick from.  It's a shame it will just about be over by next week for the Plein Air Camp Hill Festival. Last week I spent Thursday and Friday afternoons on location on this painting for a few hours each and finished it at home yesterday.  It must be like a little bit of heaven to just sit in this beautiful garden and enjoy it's splendor.
