Studio Visit

Last Friday,
Pam Farrell organized a group studio visit at her place in Flemington, NJ. She invited us for lunch and to look at her work and share something of our own. Artists included David Foss, Tim McFarlane, Rob Solomon, all from the Philadelphia area and Ravenna Taylor along with myself from NJ.

I was so busy looking at Pam's garden, collection of art, antiques and eating BLT'S on homemade bread that I didn't take any pictures of her house. Too bad because it is a great place.
But I did snap a few in the studio.

Pam's studio is in the back of her house. She is busy getting ready for a show at Morpeth Gallery scheduled for the spring. Here you see an oil painting that she is working on at the moment.

A painting that Pam just finished:

Thanks, Pam. A great time was had by all. I am looking forward to next month's visit at Tim McFarlane's studio.

Lisa, thanks for this post. I have been following Pam and her work over the last year, and getting this personal glimpse into her studio with friends is great.

Oh my gosh....sounds like you all had a wonderful day sharing your work. I love visiting other artist's studios, even vicariously like this.

Thanks for sharing.
