We believe that by sharing these stories, studio sneak peeks and talking to our buyers, that some of you will see art for what it really is: people communicating and talking to one another through paint, clay, metal etc. Artists are real people. Collectors are real people. And growing an appreciation for the arts begins when you stop to look and make a connection!
|In the Studio of Craig Baltzer|
Craig took images of one of his paintings from beginning to end. See it below.
|In the beginning....sometimes, there are a few sketches; an idea is forming|
|Then the idea gets more developed....|
|...and then a little bit more....|
|It's really starting to take shape now....|
|And finally....it's done! Although one of the hardest things about painting is knowing...when it's complete.|
Here is a sneak peek into another work, just the beginning stages! Make sure to look for it next week, all complete!
