At The Studio

 More Photos of the Studio click on me taking a break Corliss Blakely at her studio

My studio is a very special private space

  • I've had a wonderful year working in my studio creating The Forgotten Seeds.
  • I've eaten a lot of  seeds and fruit !
  • Do you know there are more than 100 seeds in every blueberry and that cherimoya seeds are toxic.
  • I didn't know that! 
  • I hope with this new series you will take the time to look within at the world you live in.

             All my paintings are glazed in thin layers, so I work on several paintings a day. When I started this series my first subjects were apples. I would come in to the studio in the morning with a basket of apples. After that I started with grapes and peppers.

             Then I realized that Vermont was not the place to buy tropical fruits.With that realization  I headed to Ometepe Island in Nicaragua . I've been traveling there for years teaching art to children and painting on the ipad.

Now I go there to study tropical fruits and photograph their seeds.
