The Return is in Sight

It has taken a few YEARS, but Studio Atelier will be re-activated in a couple of months. We have moved from our home of over 30 years and are beginning to settle into our new place. It's going to take several weeks to get my studio set up, and believe me it's long overdue. I can't wait to get warmed up and painting on several pieces that have been in limbo for months.

I hope you are having fun with your art. I'll be back in September.

A Family Day

Jean Nelson

To all of you who have been waiting for the next painting challenge:  Thanks for your patience.  Sometimes a person needs to take stock and pause in life. The holidays were the perfect time for me to do that and spend lots of time with my family doing family activities.
One of our favorite annual events is to visit the Denver Zoo when they have their “Zoo Lights” display.  However, I was not successful in getting any photos of the Zoo Lights for the Studio Atelier blog.  However here is a photo from that day that I’ve selected for you to try.

Remember to  follow the rules on the right, submitting a digital image of your painting/drawing as an attachment when you send it to me in an email.  The next Studio Atelier painting challenge will be posted about February 17th.  Good luck, have fun, and I look forward to seeing your submittals!
