The event takes place Wednesday, March 13th from 5 to 6PM at Ann Korologos Gallery in historic downtown Basalt.
Silver Cups and pitchers are some of my favorites to paint. The mirror-like quality of the silver picks up the reflections of leaves and petals on the table, my studio skylight and surroundings, and occasionally my own reflection, resulting in a small self-portrait. I always wear read when painting silver because the slight touch of color in the reflection can add to the composition of the painting.~Sarah Lamb, Still Loves and Landscapes
The Inspiration for my still life paintings comes from the world around me, and as a young art student living in France, it was not hard to find. The local farmer’s markets provided me with an exquisite array of wonderful subject matter. I was immediately drawn to the vibrant vegetables, freshly picked fruit with the leaves still attached, wide variety of eggs, artisan soaps, and intricately crafted pastries.~Sarah Lamb, Still Lives and Landscapes
