Like most of you, there comes a point in the year where the "Still Life" must be tackled. And, I brush off the old Renoir, VanGogh, and Cezanne prints. This year, I rotated a new artist into my lesson, who is also a friend of mine from High School. She is amazingly talented, and it was so interesting for the students to compare the "classic" still life with the work of Carrie Waller. It also opened the door to discuss how artists of old made a name for themselves, compared with artists today who have the internet to help in marketing themselves. We jotted down a few questions to ask her after our discussion, and are anxiously awaiting our response. If you have a chance to check out her work- I highly recommend it.
