I finally managed to get over to the Roger Tory Peterson Institute to see some of Julie Zickefoose’s paintings and sketches. My daughter Emily and I went. Emily is a big fan of Julie’s dog, Chet Baker.
One painting in particular was fun to see because of a series of 4 posts Julie had put up on her blog about the process of painting it.
I wanted to put links to each post here, but I found it hard to do… This link will get you to the first three:
And this is the final of the four posts:
(I don’t want to say anything bad about other blogging platforms, but permit to say that I really like WordPress!)
It was also very fun to see Julie’s first watercolor made at age 12, and her first bird painting made for her grandma at age 16.
The exhibit is at RTPI through January 31, 2009. Don’t miss it. It’s called “Letters from Eden” – same as the title of her new book, which is also on sale at RTPI.
