For a time now, I'm going to work on larger pieces like this one where I have to be very patient to paint the fabric of this pleasant painting with Camembert. 😊

This Wednesday, I'm working on the website. I'm trying to integrate a new menu in the same time that I'm boring about SEO. The new paintings will be soon on-line, I've done photos today.
I have spent a very good week-end to read the books delivered by Amazon. 2 were about Jean Siméon Chardin, the famous French painter of Still life and one of my favorite with Lubin Baugin or Oudry. I was very surprised how much we have through the centuries, many common points. Tomorrow, let's go to new pieces !!

It's always an exciting moment to live when you begin to paint in color on grisaille because, after many efforts, time, you begin to see what your painting will become once finished, like with the first pass done on this classic piece.
But it is also pleasant to do the grisaille because you are working for the next pass which will be in color like this pleasant new piece.
In fact, you have understood that whatever I do, I'm happy !! ;-)

I wish you all the best for you and your family, with health, happiness and prosperity ! ^^
Several new paintings are in work when some of them have already found a new home like these pleasant small olives leaving my studio to London.
In the same time, new grisailles are already drying like these two pieces.
I'm sorry for my website in English but with 2 framesets, the SEO is not good so I have to work to do a new version... Grrr !! ;-)
Have a week-end and thank you for your support.

This pleasant piece is now on board to leave France and to go under the beautiful sun of Miami. In the same time, I continue to work on my website and new paintings like this new one with grapes. The first results are really... Yeaaah baby !! :-)

The French website is now completed every day with new webpages and you can visit it on this link WWW.JEANPIERREWALTER.COM
In the same time, the work continues with new passes on the 8 paintings currently in progress in my studio.
The last to be varnished is already available. You have just to click on the photo to have a better idea of this "Fruits chez Chardin".
"La nouvelle Eve" is almost completed and after 3 months of drying, this small grisaille begins to be colored this morning. ^^

No, it is not the secret title of the next Star Wars VIII but just mine on this terrific website now available to present the responsive menu on your smartphone. Yes, I did it and it is fantastic.
In fact, I'm a very bad webmaster. That's why it's so fantastic that my menu works in responsive. So I will complete the French website and when I will be sure all is work correctly, I will do the same for the English version.
During this time, 8 paintings are in progress on the easel like "La nouvelle Eve" which received a new pass today.

I have spent long hours these last days to study and learn about all these little things that you have to do for a better SEO of your website, to create a menu for smartphone, etc... Mamma mia !! I'm really not talented for this but I try to do my best and the French website begins to have a pleasant look.
In the same, several paintings are in progress like this little piece called "La nouvelle Eve" (The new Eve) and it is a real pleasure to paint this portrait. ^^

A parcel came at home today with all the new material to do supports of different sizes with thin linen of high quality. It is not my favorite work but after several hours, several passes of Gesso, it will be very pleasant to begin to work with colors for new challenges and maybe, just one or two good paintings ?! ^^

This Monday, it has left my studio to be installed in a very pleasant home in Australia. ^^
In the same time, this little gem is now in the house of a pretty princess with her 2 cats in Washington. Everywhere Post works, you may receive one of my paintings. ;-)

Several large pieces are in progress in my small studio. It's very strange to take suddenly a brush n°.12 when I'm so used to paint with n°.0 ! :-)
You will be able to follow this pleasant and intimist piece. I prefer to reserve the others to make you a surprise when they will be finished. ^^

Sometimes you have planned all your day and nothing works as previous... You paint even upside ! ^^
Sometimes, you have to say goodbye to a very good friend like "3 masters, 3 looks" sent to the Tennessee in a art lover house.
Fortunately, new friends are coming to take place in your heart to obscure your mind like these 2 new pieces. ^^
Sometimes, it also snows in April and it is simply "MA-GNI-FI-QUE" ! ^^
