new view, edges and Lisa

This painting is from Friday's field visit. A new view. (sorry for the barrel distortion's a long one!) The focus was about edges and the use of color (read simultaneous contrast) at those edges.
On Friday I had the pleasure of meeting fellow blogger, Lisa McShane.
Below see our photo. Lisa is left, I am on the right.
Isn't it great, how many wonderful, interesting people you can meet on blog?

Right now I am deep into Richard's workshop and as soon as time is available I will post tons of info.   maybe tonight or tomorrow!

When bloggers meet. Look at the two of you smiling so big.

This painting really tells the story of how overgrown we are in Washington this year. I just got done weed whacking around my studio!

This is a tremendous work - you are doing so well. Good painting with RM, and take care of yourself, too.

Hi Loriann - it was great to meet you!

Hope you're enjoying the lovely weather here and the magic Skagit light. Thanks for linking to my blog.

Hi Casey! It is fun to finally meet blogger friends in person.
I love the long flowing grasses you have to cut them down?
Thank you about the painting!!!

Hi Lisa! It was great to meet you too!
I love it here! Happy painting!

Splendid painting, it's good to get lost in. Thanks for posting, it's great to see your progress. Enjoy Washington, that weather sounds great right now.

Love that turquoise (foliage on the left).
Funny about meeting other bloggers, isn't it? I am looking forward to my first meeting too, sometime after this summer--blogger Sonya Johnson is moving to (the other side of) Colorado, so someday we will meet.

Beautiful painting Loriann! I tend to think of edges as being soft or hard but will look at them in the context of contrasting colors too. Thanks! Enjoy your week!!!

I discovered your blog via Making a Mark and want to thank you for sharing your Wolf Kahn and now Richard McKinley workshops experiences. I wasn't able to do one this year but your sharing of info gave me alot of inspiration. Your paintings are just beautiful and inspire me to get out there. Today I'm pretending to be Monet and painting my Wisconsin garden with daylilies at their peak. Thanks again. Have a wonderful time out there! Pat

hi nika! Thank you about the painting!
You are right the weather is great...right now. The radio says we are taking a "break" from the "heat wave"...and I am freezing..I am wearing all my clothes: sweatshirt, sweater, fleece vest and jeans. heehee.

Hi Jala!
Ah, and then there will be, sam and sonya- a full posse in Boulder.

Hi Donna! You're right edges are color too. Life is good.

Hi Pat Thanks you and welcome to my blog! I am delighted to hear that I am providing inspiration to you. Have fun being Monet and thanks for taking the time to comment!

This is beautiful! I will think of edges differently too. Like Donna I tend to think of edges as hard or soft. I learn so much here:)
