Peter Worsley's Occasional Newsletter - Winter 2010

• To the left are thumbnails of paintings I have generated over the last few months. I try to paint every morning. To know more about each painting, explore the Recent Paintings section of my website.

• In addition, I have written several new articles about how I paint and related topics. A complete list appears in the left column of the faq/how I do it web page.

• My website has been reworked to make it easier for you to find things. Many additional paintings are now shown. Visit My Website, and begin your exploration.

• Each painting in the Galleries on my website now has a button linking to ImageKind, a print-on-demand organization, that makes available high quality prints and cards. With one click you may go to directly select and order copies of any of my paintings.

• To collect more material for future paintings, in October 2009 for three weeks my wife and me took an apartment in Florence, Italy. With this as a base, as we toured the local area and took side trips to Venice, Rome, Siena, Portofino, and Lucca. We returned with over 2,000 new reference photographs. Two of the resulting paintings are above, and begin my Italian Series.

• My next annual Open Studios Tour is now being planned. This year the Tour will be on the weekend before Labor Day, Saturday and Sunday, August 28 and 29, with a Gala Reception on the Friday evening, August 27. Please put these dates on your calendar. We have moved the timing because many out of town visitors found it difficult to obtain hotel reservations during Labor weekend.

• Artwork by all Tour artists will be on show for a month before the Tour, allowing you time to look at samples of each artist's work and choose the best use of your available time. More details will be available in a future newsletter.

• And of course, please come by and visit my studio at almost any time. Just call or email to set up an appointment.
