|'Dreaming of Iceland' 9x12 pastel ©Karen Margulis|
Now I go on painting trips. I've been to IAPS three times and the Plein Air Convention once. I went to Lake Tahoe for a workshop with Richard McKinley and several workshops in New Jersey with Stan Sperlak.
But this year I am going on my biggest painting adventure yet! I am going on a Stan Sperlak workshop to Iceland. We will be based in a small fishing village and taking advantage of the long days to explore and paint. I really didn't know much about Iceland before I decided to go on the trip. But part of traveling for me is the joy of research. I have immersed myself in books about Iceland and I am trying to learn Icelandic (that is a challenge!)
The trip is in June and as always I will blog as much as I can from Iceland. So, we are all going to Iceland! I can't wait! Do you have any painting adventures planned? Feel free to share them in the comments!
This painting is inspired by a photo by Hodur Viljahmonson on freedigitalphotos.net. It was done on a recycled piece of Uart paper.
