Molly Cromwell's Sturbridge Miniature Festival


Last year I won a free scholarship to the IGMA school that is located in Castine, but due to the family circumstances didn't have a chance to go there. The airplane tickets were booked. Unfortunately, the airline company refused to refund money, based on their policy they left money on my account and gave me a possibility to use it till the 7th of June, 2013. Hmm, where to fly before the 7th of June in order not to lose money?

I've heard so many great comments about Molly Cromwell's shows, and she has one of them just at the beginning of June. Great!

On the 31st of May I fly to Boston, Massachusetts to attend Molly Cromwell's Sturbridge Miniatures Festival at the beginning of June, 1 and 2, as a dealer.

Since I will have the whole day of the 1st of June free before setting a table up, I decided to take a class MONET’S PAINTING OF POPPY FIELD by JOSEPHINE MEYER. You can see her work here: http://www.joart.com/

Here is the painting we, students, will reproduce using fine sable brushes.



I always loved oil and watercolor painting, just for myself. Now I want to try my hand in miniature painting. Wish me good luck!

Elga, I've never been in Boston. I wish I would have a car there and more free time... Very excited about the painting class though.

Natalia's Fine Needlework said...

Faby, I am curious too. I've never painted in 1/12th scale.

Natalia's Fine Needlework said...

OK, Jane, thank you for an idea! I'll put on my list!
