Greetings from my studio. I have just finished my latest show (“Paradise Painters” at Hoomaluhia). It went very well, and now that my show is done, it is time for me to enter a new chapter of my creative state. Before the show, I worked actively for the majority of the days producing new work on canvas or panels. I postponed work on my mural project for a few weeks to make sure I would have enough new pieces for my show. Once the show was up, I worked more on the mural again and dreamed up the next few pieces I want to pursue. Now I must balance my massive mural project with paintings once again as I get ready for the upcomiong Windward Artists Guild show in October. This flurry of productivity has meant that I have not been communicating as much on my site lately, but I took a moment today to add a few of the pieces I created for the Paradise Painter’s show. I am looking forward to sharing the mural, but it isn’t really ready to be seen just yet. I showed a couple of previews of the secondary walls on Facebook (Wendy Roberts Fine Art) and Instagram (@wendysroberts), which I will share again here, but the main wall is a huge (10′ X 15′) scene with water lilies, foliage, a waterfall, and a weeping willow that I will be excited to debut when it is done.
I better get back to work at the easel in order to assure the quality of the pieces I have planned for the October WAG show will be up to my standards. Two of my next pieces are going to be larger works in the 3 and 4 foot range. I feel they deserve more space and more creation time to achieve the correct impact and scale. I will check in a little later, but in the meantime, if you don’t see me much out on the town during September, you know where I am!
