This is the third in a series of interviews I am posting as a way to give you a chance to meet some of the artist/ students who will be exhibiting at “In Full Bloom” at Government House in Regina, Saskatchewan from Oct. – Dec.,2013. All works by my students were inspired by the 8.5 acres of beautiful Edwardian gardens that surround this historical site and will include methods I taught during a 2 day workshop held in the gardens about new acrylic mediums and methods. I am excited to see what the students have produced and I hope you are curious too and come out to view the exhibit. Kristin tells me she will have 2 – 16″ x 20″ paintings for the show!
My students inspire me too! It was exciting to see how they would take methods I taught and applied or combined them in new and surprising ways. Kristin Marchant is another of my students who started painting with me through my Grumbacher acrylic classes at Michaels in Regina and I am so encouraged that she is taking this opportunity to share her creativity with you during the “In Full Bloom” exhibit. This will be her first public exhibit of her work. Visitors to the show are invited to make comment at the show in a guestbook or here on my blog. I am sure she would love to hear your comments. Following is a brief interview with Kristin:
