The best part about studio tours is getting to see all of the “stuff” along with the environment in which an artist creates.  The space, how it is arranged, it’s quirks… The supplies and tools, what do they look like and how are they stored… The artwork, both finished and in-process… The inspirations and motivators…  Come and see inside my working studio and studio practice and discover how it really works!

We will open Saturday and Sunday with a tour and each will highlight different things so be sure to watch both!

Questions have been collected and responses pre-recorded in Q&A sessions for both Saturday and Sunday! 

The questions range from how I make something, to what it is like teaching, to letting go of art when it sells, and how to select new artwork… the topics are quite varied and you will enjoy the responses!

If you have additional questions arise as you enjoy the Online Open Studio, feel free to E-Mail them to me at robyn@robynryanart.com.  I will answer you and add your question to a supplemental Q&A recording after the LIVE Online Open Studio weekend is over since the Online Open Studio will continue through the month of May here on this webpage!

It has been a blast doing the Facebook Live “Paint with Me” watercolor demonstrations over the past few months.  The demonstrations have produced some lovely paintings which need to find loving forever homes so they are offered for sale through this Silent Auction!

Each of these 8″ x 10″ original watercolors have been mounted and matted on acid-free foam-core with acid-free mats and is encased in a protective plastic sleeve. Their normal price would be $185.  Starting bids for all four pieces will be $90.  Each piece will also have A “BUY IT NOW” option for $200 in case you just have to have it and don’t want to wait!

Here is how this Silent Auction will work:

Silent Auctions are a fun way to “name your price” without doing so publicly!  For this Online Open Studio we will conduct the auction through submitting an electronic form!  Simply complete this SILENT AUCTION BID FORM with your information and your bid/bids for as many pieces as you are interested in.  When you hit submit, your completed form is received and recorded.

This Silent Auction will extend beyond the weekend through the month of May with the winners announced the evening of Sunday, May 30th.

The latest bid will be updated regularly on the website above each image throughout the Open Studio month of May.  The Silent Auction will end at noon on May 30th.

The fortunate individual with the highest bid for each piece at the end of the Silent Auction on Saturday, May 30th will be contacted via e-mail so arrangements can be made for purchase and delivery/shipment of the paintings to their new forever homes!  NO SHIPPING CHARGES ~ all of that is included!

Have fun!

A demonstration of one of my creative processes will be provided both Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday we delve into sculpting in oil-based clay in preparation for molding and casting at the foundry to create a bronze sculpture!  A lot goes into this process and you will gain insight into why bronze sculptures are not inexpensive!

On Sunday we explore the unique Acrylic Layers Process I developed and teach (the inaugural Online Acrylic Layers Mini-Series Workshop begins Friday May 21, you can register through May 19th with Early Bird Pricing through May 10th!)
