Open Studio Tour – Guest Blogger Bobbie Larson

Collage and painting techniques capture the qualities of ice.


I grew up in the winters of southern Idaho.  Winter weather, with its snow, ice, and frosty window panes, has always been a source of fascination and often inspiration for my art work.  Looking out on unblemished, snow-covered landscape always provides me with a sense of wonder and awe at its peaceful beauty.

In researching the many aspects of winter weather for my City & Guilds Diploma Course at the Gail Harker Creative Studies Center, I made a series of design boards to help develop my art work. I primarily used watercolor to create color studies.


I have tried to capture that mood of winter snow and its sparkling, still serenity in my art world through the use of subtle, delicate hues of color, silk cloth, and often beads to add the sparkle.

    I really enjoy viewing your work at the studio and appreciate you sharing it with those who are unable to get to the studio. This blog is becoming very exciting.
    Thank you so very much.
