Out in the Berkshires this weekend and visited the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA yesterday, full of classic American art. He spent many years illustrating covers of the magazine the Saturday Evening Post and made over 4000(!) paintings. I love how he captured expressions on people’s faces and told an entire story in one picture. Also the amount of detail is really incredible.
Well it’s the best time of year here in New England…the air is crisp, leaves are changing, and it’s pumpkin season. Our local community center just started zoom photography classes with an amazing local photographer named Nick Depasquale and so I signed up. I am determined to learn what all the buttons on my DSLR camera do and how to shoot in manual mode. These are photos I took at a local farmstand that I’m submitting for my first homework assignment. They are all unedited images straight from my camera.
Excited to participate in my first gallery exhibit! I joined the Nashua Area Artists’ Association recently and submitted a few works for the fall show in their member gallery. Quite fun to see my art in the world and check out other artists’ works.
I’m too afraid to sketch or paint others (in case I make them look terrible) so I’m planning on only making self portraits or pictures of strangers until I get better. This doesn’t look exactly like me but the distortion looks pretty good anyway. 🙂
