Detail from a Painting by Erica Chappuis
I had the great good fortune to be invited to the home of the Detroit artist Erica Chappuis recently. When I drove up her street, I could immediately tell which house was hers by all the wonderful artistic "installations" in the yard. She invited me in and gave me blueberry tea and we had a wonderful long conversation, and then she showed me around her yard, her house and finally her studio. She showed me how to use molding compound to make relief in a painting, and photographed that and hope to present it as a tutorial in a future post.
