Please enjoy this short video of me painting, titled Dawn Breaks on Pelican Lake, from start to finish. You can see it is quite physical (and requires long arms at times.) The accompanying music is Ode to Joy, played on guitar by my talented friend Marco Soliz.
This is the live artist’s talk for the opening reception of my Natural Abstractions exhibit this past July,2017. It gives you a little insight into the inspiration for my new series of watercolor + wax works that morphed out of my splash and pour watercolors. And I am weilding a blowtorch! (If you have trouble opening the link go to YouTube and search for Kay Stratman Studio – Anatomy of a Painting.)
I’ve got another Splash and Pour Weekend Workshop penciled in for the last weekend in September 2015, at Turpin Meadow Ranch in Jackson Hole. Watch this great video my friend and filmmaker, Jennifer Tennican of JenTen Productions created about last year’s workshop. This should get you in the mood! I will post more information as it becomes available. I’d love to fill the Ranch with creative and enthusiastic artists for the weekend. Keep in touch, sign up for my “Occasional Newsletter from Kay Stratman’s Studio” on my website. Visit www.turpinmeadowranch.com for a peak at the beautiful setting.
In the meantime, see post below for Friday March 6 evening painting demonstration, also at Turpin Meadow.
