Yes, This Is An Art Residency

It’s time for my weekly summary of art created in the past week. As you have read in the other posts it was a busy week with lots of activities and social events. Despite that I did manage to do some ink drawings and paintings this week.

From my attendance at the dedication of the new altar piece at a nearby church I painted Le Benetier. This translates roughly as The Holy Water Font. This ancient font was just inside the door of the church with sunlight coming through the open door.

My other featured pieces this week are still lifes in ink, watercolor, and oil pastel. I’ve been really working at the ink wash drawings and enjoying the effects. However, I continue to paint a few watercolors and experiment with oil pastel.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    My favorite is the bénitier; there is something about it that really appeals to me. What Brenda has to say above fits for me as well.

    I really like this painting,( bénitier?). It feels peaceful and the colours are warm. It is so simple but conjures up a feeling of serenity and timelessness.

    Lovely. The word for this contraption is a “bénitier” or container of holy water. I like it as you rendered it.
