Today I am off to the Getty for a two part class titled “Miniature Painting” taught by Sylvana Barrett. Ever since first seeing the Illuminated Choir Book show and hearing her speak I’ve been yearning to study with Sylvana. I am captivated by Illuminated manuscripts, evident in the painting H2 Illuminated: Heaven and Hell, pictured above. After seeing the show at the Getty back in 2002 I realized that the letter H has a space for a painting above and below. Perfect for the Heaven and Hell illustrations I was working on.
The Hirshhorn Museum had a contest in which the entries had to be created using only one sheet of paper. These pieces are quite magnificent.
