I love teaching, but the one negative thing about it for me is that I'm always itchin' to paint. Doing a demo during class just doesn't cut it - too much pressure. Today I had time to do an extra painting after class. I borrowed these persimmons from a student. I've always wanted to paint them but had never found any with attractive tops. These were perfect.
Here I am doing my demo. I hate pictures of myself, but someone asked me specifically to post one like this. So there you go.
Here are some of the student paintings. Someone left a comment on yesterday's post asking what all my crazy ideas are - just keep reading my blog and you'll see a lot of them. :)
