  • Ellen Cornett featured in Hill Rag
    It’s always fun to come across a friend in print. That’s what happened when I found our Ellen in the October issue of the Hill Rag. In speaking of her drawings of “puppies and possums, bunnies and bears,” author Jim Magner says, “Ellen has reached such a superior skill level that her playful personifications are born whole from the point of the pencil. That mastery has made her fearless in entering the unknown and pursuing the what if.” Here are a couple of Ellen’s recent works: This is what the author Jim Magner… ... Read More

  • Birds galore for October Draw-a-Bird Day; Send your own bird November 8
    The Wednesday Studio only recently found out that the 8th of every month is Draw-a-Bird Day. But guess what?

You can learn all about the history of DAB Day and see hundreds of birds that have been submitted over the years, at DAB Day’s own website: Even cartoonists want to draw birds! We thank cartoonist Dave Blazek for this great cartoon and for kindly giving us permission to use it in the blog. You can follow… ... Read More

  • Tara and Linda N. have art accepted by Capitol Hill Art League for new show
    I think the CHAL exhibit opening October 1 has a cute title: “Show and Tell: What I Did on My Summer Vacation.” The exhibit is on display in the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop gallery in Washington, DC, through November 3, 2016. Tara Hamilton‘s summer seems to have been serene, from the looks of her two pieces in the CHAL show: Tara Hamilton: “Park Time,” watercolor. Tara Hamilton: “Cows: View from the Road,” watercolor. Linda Norton‘s connections to Maine are on display in her collage in the CHAL exhibit: Linda Norton: “Maine II,” mixed media.… ... Read More

  • DC’s Cosmos Club exhibits work by two Wednesday Studio artists
    Both Linda Norton and Anne Shields had work accepted this month by an art show for members of the Cosmos Club in Washington. Here’s Linda’s colorful rendering of a Virginia landscape: “Runion’s Creek,” pastel on sanded paper by Linda Norton, who says, “This creek runs below our mailbox in Broadway, Virginia. It can be practically dry, or a raging torrent, depending on the rainfall.” Anne told me her subject in the watercolor below is sea grapes in the Turks and Caicos Islands. I had to check on where the Turks and… ... Read More
