A Studio Visit

Judy Dahl's   CAPTAIN  SUPER    pastel   10" x 8"

Yesterday, Judy hosted the first Claresholm Art Club studio tour. Her rural home is filled with art and treasures. As a professional horse photographer she has an endless resource of images for her paintings.  We were dazzled with her binders of catalogued slides filled with a wide range of local subject matter beyond the equestrian.  Judy is immersed in the daunting task of converting them into digital image files.

Judy's current fascination is with high definition resolution photography and why not?  She is an absolute master with Photoshop.

A separate building houses her studio/workshop where she keeps equipment and materials, from when she operated a framing store in town, as well as her painting supplies.

There was a pastel horse portrait on the easel

To round out the tour Judy gave us a mat cutting demonstration

I always consider it a treat to see the creative space of another artist ... thanks for your hospitality Judy!
