The importance of research to the development of a work of art.

 I’d like to tell you about the painting titled ”Young Woman in a White Shirt”…  It was the simplicity of the idea for a portrait, the white shirt & especially the beautiful folder across the bodice that inspired me.  I especially chose the image of this young person, her name is Melanie, because of her lovely serene expression.  But in this video, I’ll focus on what led me to paint the portrait in the first place & the research that I did to accomplish the work.  There are  lots of reasons to do research before beginning a piece of art, many are particularly personal, & I’ll share a few of mine with you here.   On a final note….I believe that it’s necessary for artists to constantly research ideas & techniques and to seek out the perspective of artist’s they admire & see what they are doing, too.  It’s exciting & it essential to keeping our work fresh.

“Young Woman in a White Shirt” was on exhibition at the WOMEN’S ART SOCIETY OF MONTREAL 2016 Juried Exhibition, May 28th & 29th at the CONCORDIA UNIVERSITY, GREY NUNS PAV. 1190 GUY ST, Montreal Quebec. David Jon Kassan’s portrait workshop took place in Civita Castellana at the JSS in Civita, the summer of 2013.  Photos of Naples were taken by Elizabeth Reed.  Libby’s “Skull” photos were taken at the Fontanel cemetery, Sanità quarter Naples.  We stayed at the Relais Falisco hotel.

Peony Impressions #1

See our prints, gicleés and posters…

Beauty, grace and refinement are the qualities Roxanne Dyer explores when painting the sublime peony.  Peonies are especially lovely and generously offer many opportunities to create gorgeous arrangements that beautify the intimate universe, your home, your life.  Roxanne explores the peony’s personality liberally and arrives with a composition that is very much about the essence of “the peony”.  They are gorgeous…they represent all that is beautiful in our world…simultaneously strong and delicate, light but dramatic, moving but serene.  This image is based on Roxanne’s original oil painting titled “Peony Impressions #1”
