120 Days project
Thanks to a post by Browsing Rome http://www.browsingrome.com/ I started to follow American artist Kelly Medford as she features parts of Rome I have never seen….in her 120 pictures series
I was also curious about the daily project since my blog a day for my next
100 days in Italy was on the drawing board.
Take a look at some of her wonderfull paintings, dream of the places she shows us about her Rome and think of joining her on a painting event in 2013.
About the Artist
The act of painting is catching a fleeting moment in time, never to be repeated.
I’m a young painter, and until recently only painted landscapes. Last year I completed a 100 day project to challenge and grow myself and my work, to explore what it is I have to say in paint. I also traveled to Alaska, Florida, South Carolina and several other places painting before moving to Rome, Italy this fall.
The warm light of Rome and it’s vast layers of history compel me to carry my easel with me everywhere I go. I stop to paint the light hitting a building, a square or the remnants of a Roman aqueduct running through busy traffic. The possibilities are endless and I’m not only excited, but honored to have the opportunity to paint the streets and life of Rome.
Thank you for your interest in my work and for taking the time to visit the site.
