Martha Hayden’s Open Studio
My open studio exhibition and sale will be Saturday and Sunday, October 23 and 24.12:00 - 5:00 both days.
There has been a hiatus; the last exhibition was in 2019, so there is plenty of new work!
If you like painting, and you like old houses, you will really enjoy this show! You can roam the whole house; every room will be open for you to look, and a lifetime of work on display!
143 Prairie Street, Sharon, WI. 262 736 4571.
About 65 miles from Milwaukee and 85 from Chicago.

Pineapple Diamonds are my family's favorite cookie. Here are the pineapples with the things to make cookies: pastry blender, rolling pin,and mixing bowl. The rolling pin was most interesting and difficult to paint. It establishes the depth in the canvas, must be foreshortened by not look distorted.

During the winter of 20-21, I made a number of paintings based on a set up with pineapples and baking equipment. Here we have pairs of pineapples.

Red House in Winter

Artist’s Note:  This is a view, done from my studio window. Snow is both positive and negative, and is difficult to paint because it is whiter than the white of the canvas. The only way to get the illusion of more whiteness is  to provide enough contrast. The two trees, the red house, and the pale distance provide that comparison.

From a series of window paintings done during the winter. Snow transforms everything in a magical way. I wanted the painting to look as "cold" as I was feeling.

I worked on this "almost nocturne" a long time, trying to simplify the house enough to emphasize the light behind.
