A New Adventure

Hello! Yes we are busy busy here. Not only do we now hove two little ones to keep up with but we are preparing to head to the Netherlands for my husband’s 6 month research sabbatical. It should be a wild time. I can’t wait. I am hoping to find some inspiration in the home of the dutch masters and to find some time to work while we are over there. I may have to switch mediums as our baggage allotment will prevent me from bringing all my paints etc. But perhaps it is best for me to explore some new methods and mediums.I will be blogging while we are there. You can keep up with all our misadventures here: julsbuehrer.blogspot.com

Here is a recent commission that I was able to slowly hammer out. Thanks again to Sam and Josef Brandauer for their continuing partronage.

Still-Life with Klaus

Well as you can tell by the length of time since my last update I have been otherwise occupied lately. Our second child, Klaus, arrived mid-July and he and his brother have been keeping us hopping ever since. It is a good kind of busy, however, and we are really enjoying parenthood.

In art news I’ve been mostly working on commissions these days. Before Klaus arrived I completed two Dutch-style still-lifes for a friend. I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. See what you think:

Romeo and Juls

Happy 2012! Wah this year is flying by already. I just spent the last month painting the set for Gettysburg College’s production of Romeo and Juliet. This was my first chance to work with the new design professor, Eric Berninghausen. The show was set in the 1800s with a steampunk-ish theme so the design is not your typical Romeo and Juliet set. There are a few pics in the Scenic Art Gallery for your to peruse. Next up, I will be working on two Dutch-style still lifes for a friend of mine. I expect them to take quite a few months but hopefully I will have them completed by the time our second child arrives in July. Keep your fingers crossed!
