Demo by artist Pat Meyer


Demo for class

One of the most common mistakes that beginning painters make is to include too many hard edges.  Maybe this is because we are often taught as children to “fill in all the colors”.   If you paint in this manner you are not seeing the world as an artist. 
Sharp edges are compelling when combined with a polarity of values. In other words if you place a sharp edge where the light is very light and the dark is very dark you will certainly create and electrifying visual event in the painting.  But sharp edges must be kept to a minimum and used only with a clear pictorial purpose in mind.  A painting should be like a symphony with a crescendo.  Start off your painting by writing down a clear vision of where the hard edge will be placed and usually this is where you want to draw the viewers most attention.  Other areas can be broken color, softer edges and thinner paint to create your song.

My dear friend Renee surprised me with a wonderful arrangement of flowers.  These beautiful carnations where in the bouquet.  The balance of the strong Red color against the White add high contrast and the Pink balances it out.  Beautiful botanical for any room.

Peonies 2017 by artist Pat Meyer

My peonies in the garden are starting to peek up through the soil.  My sweet Mom gave me the roots from her garden in Nashville to plant in my yard.  How exciting to see the earth renew itself each year.  We feel that there is always hope when seeing that things are not forever in our lives but will be in constant change and new exciting things will be blooming.

Spring is here and the garden bunnies are coming out to see what is available.  The Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas has asked it's artist to paint some whimsical animal paintings.  This is the first of the series for me.  Of course I had to add some pansies for them to eat.  They seem to eat all my pansies.

Well life events have happened this last week and I have not been at the easel.  So today during the early morning of Daylight Savings time the brushes came out.  What to paint was the question.  My heart told me to keep it simple but lovely at the same time.  So as I stood there in my PJ's and house slippers this little rose painting came out.  My favorite blue flow pot became the partner to balance off the colors of the roses.

During this season of Lent our mind turns to the Lord.  We give thanks each day for the sacrifice he made for all of us. He gave no greater gift than himself and to take on our sins.  These lenten roses plus the cabbage rose remind us of all that he does for us daily.  May your day be blessed.
