August 23, 2021 – Delivering New Art to the Old Bakery and Emporium (across from the State Capital) Austin, Texas – ala Anders Zorn, Woman Dressing

Like my recently sold small 5×7 watercolor, “ala Monet, Girl with Umbrella” at the Old Bakery, this new work – “ala Anders Zorn, Woman Dressing” is also my own rendition of another older artist’s work, is 5×7 on canvas coated with Golden’s Absorbent Ground, and will also be for sale at the Old Bakery 😊

Softer than the classically impressionist work by Anders Zorn I chose to emulate, I’m pleased with how I adjusted the edges and sense of space, adding my own sense of the woman’s emotion. I love both versions, his and mine, and am just glad I could do some justice to Zorn’s true masterpiece, which has a luxuriousness and elegance I feel I can only touch upon, letting my own sensibilities veer my work as it may 🙏

My rendition then joins other work I have at the Old Bakery, including —

Placed at the top of a case across from several tall windows, Lady in Paris 1889 receives the light it needs to reveal the layers of acrylic washes to their best; while below, in another case, two more of my 5x7s watercolor originals plus a print of Floating Butterfly show well placed lower!

The Old Bakery & Emporium’s restored and preserved store front matches the rich wood interiors and limestone inside.

And being across the street from the Texas State Capital has always been a huge plus! ❤️

If every you’re in Austin, or live in or nearby the city, this is a great place to also visit – free! 😊
