Still Life with Pizza Boxes

What is going on at the Renaissance Art Gallery? How come people coming into the Gallery on Wednesday s are carrying pizza boxes? It is a pizza Party at the gallery?

No, it is simply the easiest way to carry wet canvases for the Wednesday evening class. Advanced students can work on still life oil painting, learning to glaze paintings like the old masters.

Studying the old masters is a time-honored way to learn.

You can see the demonstration painting, Growing Orchids, develop each week at the Renaissance Art Gallery in Huntington, WV.

Each week the painting will develop as layer after layer of oil pigment is glazed over the previous weeks dried layer. It is a slow process, this build up of color, but a rewarding one.
