Studio Tours~ 2014

Good morning, afternoon and evening. I know… I’m bad 😦 it’s been to long since I’ve posted. In my defense life has been far larger than myself as of late. Between trying to get into a rhythm here at home after what feels like 8 months of travel and having the studio tours in mid swing. Things have been going fast needless to say.

Here is quick look at what’s been going on.

A different view.
I have to say the studio tour was pretty cool. We had about 60 people come through over a two day period. Some how going into this weekend I thought I’d have time to paint during the tour but in reality I spent most of the time talking with guests which was absolutely fantastic. I did however manage to get started on this piece:

Though the weekend had some trying times all in all it was a great experience and something I certainly plan to do again next year. So what’s left for the rest of this year? Well I’ll be hiding fast here at home, no more Ottawa,Saint Louis, New York or UK trips planned for this year. I’m thinking some nesting as start to Dream of Autumn

I was going to send this piece to a friend but that time has passed so me, a nice cozy warm studio some home cooked meals and a mountain for paint~ Sounds like a perfect way to hide away and create the next collection of work. As always I have to thank those if you who have stood by my side over the paste 5 months. You’ve seen me go through the hardest times in my life and from the very depths o my soul…. I give thanks. I’ve made friends I never thought I’d have and lost friends I never thought is lose. But as the dust starts to settle I’m finding myself embraced here locally in many ways, simply it’s good to be home and good to be back to wordpress.

All my love,
Benjamin

Some words:

Colors blend as lines / roles fade and meld into the symmetry of
Form, shaded by candle light giving the knight hope.. Keeping
The mind and souls demons at bay…. Such heart, does this ink bleed for ones taste in the mornings rain.
Lilies, soft and white give grace to day… The soft scent lifts to a place where only your name can be wrapped in words of trust…….

  1. It’s always good to have a rest for a while…. the tour looks great and sounds like it went pretty well. I love the Blue and Green of course, but the purple and yellow that’s special to you is really intricate and lovely too! ❀
