Children in a Pine Tree, oil on board, 12 by 14 in. Emilia Kallock 2017

Painting to celebrate Earth Day.  May we leave a healthy wholesome place for future generations.  Reward for sitting for live painting: a bit of organic applesauce cake and deviled (from free range) eggs. Asking the kids to sit any longer than five minutes on a beautiful spring day just didn’t seem feasible or constructive.  Remainder of painting completed in studio.

In the Sculpture Garden, Santiago, Chile, oil on board, 12 by 18 in. Emilia Kallock

A three hour session creating the sepia layer in my first try at sfumato, an Italian renaissance painting technique that Leonardo and Rembrandt used.  We’ll see where it goes from here.

A continued focus on flowers, trees and public parks while I am here in Chile.  The following watercolors are observations on the peaceful vibe always felt in the well attended plazas.  I also continue fantasizing about park designs which I feel would be like 3-D painting but with living things.  The Jacaranda tree and the Bougainvillea vine are currently stealing my heart.
