Novice & Experienced Welcome

Fagan has designed painting retreats to enable people to come out and try it for themselves in a safe, non-judgemental way. Interaction with others is part of her creativSOUP way. The process of playing with others, sharing a meal, trying out different media ~ as color or line flows onto paper, the feeling of ‘wow!’ energizes.

 

Sunrise Plein Air Tuscany

When the rooster crowed this morning, my easel was still on the balcony from last night.  The light had changed dramatically. Soft delicate morning light made the same view entirely different.

I knew the light would change quickly. Shower and coffee can wait. I painted in pajamas. By the time Jim woke, I had two small paintings in hand.

Arriving on Sunday, we had’t been able to stock the pantry. We left the paintings to dry and made haste for the co-op.

Provence Sunrise

​Provence Sunrise is inspired by our last morning in Provence. The birds outside my balcony were singing again. Every morning of our stay they sang the moon and stars away. On the last morning I shot a short video clip and watched as they woke from their nests in the giant fig tree in the garden. ​ ​

​It’s 10 feet wide by 4 1/2 feet high. Painted on canvas, it can be rolled to ship and stretched and installed on location. ​
