Last night at Westfield Creative Arts I had six students at my Acrylic Painting Class with one brand new gentleman Jack who hadn't painted in five years. He finished an autumn scene with a barn in the two hours and did great! Also, Carol started a boat in harbor scene and Scott finished his roses in glass vase painting (from Edouard Manet). Three from the Carson Center were attending and painted their own paintings. Below are the photo references that they used for their paintings. The boat photo is my oil painting. All said that they had a great time!
I just got an online art appraisal of this oil painting that was found by the side of the road in Westfield by my sister who gave it to me. Things people throw away! It is by Cape Cod artist Marilyn Schofield dated 89 or 80. It looks like a Cape Cod winter shore scene. It’s appraisal comes in as $200-$400. My wife Jean loved the painting and we framed it!
