Still Life

fruit Stuck inside by yet another Nor’easter, I decided to look around and make some art. Here is a drawing of some fruit in my dining room. I love making this kind of work where I’m just working on designing a picture. No agenda, just for fun. I posted the other drawings I made on […]

Timeless water-colors

one watercolor a day/ Michele Bedigian

So the boys went boating yesterday, the 4th of July, with their Dad and their Grandpa, and it reminded me of this piece I did about a year ago in Newport, Rhode Island (a frequent family destination). I did it originally on site as an exercise for “One Watercolor a Day”, a follow-up to our […]

BUT, no one can deny there’s GOOD design and then there’s […]

Apollo’s fountain

So there we were, in front of this gorgeous fountain called Le Bassin d’Apollon (a.k.a. The Fountain of Apollo). It stands in the gardens of the Château de Versailles. The horses appeared so boisterous leaping out of the water’s edge. It was irresistible. Not just to draw them but to try to capture how they felt.  Art by Michele Bedigian

GOD SPEAKS

No matter what you call it…GOD, ALLAH, ELOHIM, YHWH, OM, JEHOVAH, ALMIGHTY, PRABHU,  etc… for most of us on this planet there is a belief in a higher power beyond what we can see, feel, touch or smell. This morning there was an incredible essay on one of the morning shows that interviewed the Monks of Norcia. (Norcia is […]
