Here's another painting progression in photos-- Bloom.

My aim was to pump up the color vibrancy even more than usual on this piece to create a magical realism feel. Inspired by memories of being a very small girl standing among the tall stands of sunflowers & delphiniums in the family garden.

in home Art Parties in the Monadnock Region

Looking for a fun night out?

 How about hosting an art party for your friends right in your home?  Keene artist, Kristina Wentzell now offers Art Parties in the Monadnock area.  “Art parties are fun and relaxing” says Wentzell “they allow friends to share laughs, some wine, and really get into the creative spirit. And the best part is that everyone goes home with a piece of art they can be proud of.”

Art Parties are geared towards all levels from beginners on up. Kristina will come to your home and provide all the art supplies and materials, three hours of instruction, and set-up and clean-up. Each person will receive an original piece of art to take home.

 Following Kristina’s step by step guides and instructions, participants create bright, colorful flower paintings. “I try to keep my teaching light and hands-on—I especially love working with people who think they ‘can’t do art’ and seeing the look of surprise and joy on their faces when they create something beautiful. Usually it’s because someone long ago in their past told them they were ‘no good at art’ and they mistakenly believed them.”

Choose from one of the offered tutorials or choose one of the floral paint/collage parties.
