Artist Stephen Hankin, painting at The Frick, Pittsburgh. Although I interrupted his concentration, he graciously allowed me to photograph him at work. Said I could blog him, too. And here I was wondering what I’d photograph after the People at Work Show was over. If you live in Pittsburgh or plan to visit and would like to tour his studio (where he has 180 paintings on the walls) you can contact him stephenhankinart(at)gmail(dot)(com)The front of his card shows his studio with paintings on the walls.

” Croatian artist Maxo Vanka painted a one-of-a-kind masterpiece on the interior walls of St. Nicholas Croatian Catholic Church in Millvale, PA. The 25 murals—created in two intense periods in 1937 and 1941—are unique, evocative and larger-than-life representations of faith and family; the immigrant experience in America; social justice and injustice and the horrors of war” from the website Vanka Murals
When I parked on Grant Avenue, I noticed the banner sign on the lamppost and remembered seeing these dramatic and stunning murals at St. Nicholas Church. Information on the website link about how to get a tour and how to support the preservation of these significant and historic artworks.
It’s been a fun week of colorful collages.
Once I got started it was hard to stop.
A lot of response was generated by the different colors and it’s made me see the trend in my photography, color wise, what I’m drawn to….besides the human element. The clothes we choose, our dishes, the bed linens and artwork which surround us in our lives. Many have commented on which color is their favorite.
Right now everywhere I look it is green green green We’ve had a lot of rain.
Unexpected. Driving home after dinner out. Down a back alley parallel to on Butler Street.
As Steve said- you just never know when you’ll find a Van Gogh.

Meet Janice Schuler. Artist. Today there was an Artist’s Studio Tour in Lawrenceville. Her painting studio is in the basement of this repurposed church and was number one on the tour. I’d met Janice last night at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts and she invited me to visit her studio during the Studio Tour. There was wine and beer, bottles of water and cheese and crackers and a tray of sweets, too. Other artists studios were open as well but I sat in a comfortable chair in Janice’s studio and watched people come and go as we talked.

There are several artist’s studios in this church- architects, fiber artist. photographers and painters.
