Welcome to my Studio Blog

Take a peek into my studio and See what inspires me to create my paintings and what’s been happening in my studio and on my travels.

I love to travel, see new places and meet new people. I love to create bold colourful paintings, many of them based on my wonderful travels.

Tuscany Delights Finished!

Hi Everyone, Woohoo, I am very happy and having a big kick-ass glass of vino right now and listening to my fav guy "Mr. Dean Martin". I am toasting my new painting. Just off the easel and I am very happy with my first still life.

So here is a picture of the latest painting:
"Tuscany Delights", 60 x 80 cm

And a few close up so you can see some details:

Geez man...the nice orange lights/and darks on the red tomatoes just dont want to show up well on my stupid pics.
And a pic-lol -of all the paints I used - you can also see my messy colourful smock above.

Appreciate any comments you may have and many thanks to you all for your lovely comments during my WIP. Have a great Evening

I will be taking a short painting break from painting before I will be leaving for vacation to Canada for my sister's big wedding, and I can barely wait. So I have quite a bit to do before I leave. So I will see you all back at the easel on October 10th. Have a great upcoming Labour Day!

Deborah said...

I love this one Lisa. And I love the vibrant colors you use in your works, beautiful, as are the paintings you've done for your calendar and greeting catds :-)

All the best with your sister's upcoming wedding in Montreal. I'm in Edmonton Alberta, about 2 a days' drive or 5 hour flight west from Montreal. I've never been there, but I've seen pics of some beautiful scenery there.

Lisa Lorenz said...

Hi Bee, so great to see you and thanks for dropping by and your lovely comments....best wishes to you

Hi Deborah, so nice to see you. And thanks for your wonderful kind words about my painting. I have only been out west a few times on Biz trips. It is so beautiful. I hope to go again soon for a real vacation out there. Canada is just so big, that many of us Canadians dont even have a chance to visit our own country! Best wishes to you.
