East Austin Studio Tour 2007

The tour this year was great. Even with a little rain on Saturday, over 110 people did make it to my little home studio for the tour. I believe most of the people who came had specifically picked out my work to come see. Considering there were about 210 artists and over 100 studios on the tour this year -- and that my studio in not located in the thick of East Austin -- I'm very happy that many people managed to make it here.

Poppies Painting Series

“Impression of Poppies” | Encaustic on Paper on Board, cradled | 12″ x 12″ | © 2007 Marilyn Fenn -- This series was inspired by a split-second view I had of poppies growing in a field in Afghanistan -- it just showed a couple of pods on stems. I took it from there. As with all my encaustic paintings, there is a depth of beauty to these that has to be seen in person to be appreciated.

The way to professional accomplishment: you have to demonstrate that you know something unique, that you can repeat, over, and over and over until ultimately you lose interest in it… The model for personal development is antithetical to the model for professional success….Whenever Picasso learned how to do something he abandoned it.
