For BALANCING ACT, oil painter Melissa Jander.

 I took advantage of some figure drawing sessions from life.
These drawing sessions were so engaging, I felt swept up in the moment. The time flew as I went from pencil, to fountain pen, to charcoal and sumi ink. Small sketches gave way to large drawings, then sketching with ink and brush using large gestural movements. Finally, I was ready for paint and canvas. The painting above is the first in a series of paintings featuring the portrait and figure in interior scenes. I think that several of these will fit well in the theme of “Balancing Act,” September’s show at Fairweather House and Gallery in Seaside, Oregon.”  Melissa Jander

  • I am painting in my new Camano Island studio and rejoicing in the light and atmosphere up here.

  • My goal is to continue creating romantic and hopeful paintings which entice the viewer to stop awhile and enjoy the simple and beautiful moments in life.” —MJ

“The Balance”
Acrylic on wood cradle

MARGA
 

With each coat of paint, whether watercolors, gouache, acrylics, or oil comes depth and motion…it’s exciting and satisfying to see my work evolve from one layer to the next. I love using odd tools to paint with….for instance, Some images in my whimsy collection are painted with a toothpick (I couldn’t find a small enough pallet knife) MARGA

Frank N. Bunny’s trying to escape the ants by balancing his tea cake on his head. His tea party is not going as planned. And the ants keep coming.”  Marga

My art training comes from watching and experimenting and then doing it repeatedly, exposing a little more of me, Marga, with every attempt. I love the movement of things… whether it’s the hair or feather on a bird’s head or the drooping of a flower’s leaf…I want to make my painting live and breathe. I read Bedtime Stories in Marga’s World for eight delightful years on KMUN radio. I wrote my own children’s story. This was stimulating and a great way to fuel my imagination for my art. MARGA
