Dragonfly Art Studios Nottingham Forest location is back in operation. In the last few weeks I have been starting commissions, taken an oil painting class and painted a few personal projects.
The main commission I’m working on is the annual Night of Heroes award windows for Delaware Special Olympics.
I’ve been filling this commission since the late nineties and even though it’s a lot of work, it’s not too stressful. This year it consists of three larger award windows and seven smaller awards.
The goal of the class was to learn to paint from photos more successfully. Linda had some great tips and was able to paint alongside us. I love to watch her work. I chose a photo of Andreas that I took at the fish market in Bremerhaven.
The painting continues in my studio where I work on it a little each day and hope to finish soon.
Off task projects have included painting a bicycle helmet, birdhouses and a bat house for Nottingham Forest and some photography.
I also had a cat sitting job and have spent time with friends. All in all it’s been a pretty wonderful summer.
