“Art in the Garden” is my lastest piece before I attend a workshop with James Kroner in Italy.
This piece is dear to my heart because my artists friends and I organized “Art in The Garden” to help our wonderful teacher and friend Catherine Grawin with her hospital bills. It took place in an artist’s garden.. and it was just magical. Filled with art, music and great friends. One of those moments in time that I will never forget. Now I have a painting as well.
“Cathe”, was loved by many. She was extremely charismatic, as well as a great painter and teacher. We all wanted to be around her, feeling her comforting bright energy. I can still hear her awesome laugh when I paint. She passed away almost 2 years ago, but she’ll live inside of me and all that loved her. She’s a source of great inspiration and strength. Cathe was/is my mentor, in life and in art.
So with James Kroner workshop in Italy, I have really “high expectations”, haha – Hope to keep improving my painting skills, especially “en Plein Air”.
We will be painting in small towns in Umbria, Tuscany and Lake Como. If you follow me on Instagram claudiaverciani you’ll be able to see my progress! I’m super excited and hope to keep up with the intense schedule/itinerary he has for us. Wish me luck! Ciao a tutti!
