Considering Balance


Click Here to Bid

I am home from my latest workshop and on the road to recovery. : ) A little more wine should do it. I say that but actually this one was superbly organized. If you're looking for a good workshop experience check out Whidbey Island Fine Art Studio. Every student had their very own shadow box, plenty of lights and tons of room. Every day a whole slew of food was laid out along with coffee and tea. We even had a camera and  projector so everyone had a good view of the demos. Here's a view of about half the classroom:


And below are a couple of my foreign (Canadian) students. It was tough getting past the language barrier, what with them saying MAUVE so weird (among other things), but we worked through it.


And here's a family photo - me and my kids. Aren't they cute?!

Carol, How often do you complete your larger paintings? Could you make a blog to show them as they were finished? Nothing fancy mind you, just a small bone for your devoted fans.. I for one would love that.

Carol, I love this angel. You have captured the expression wonderfully. Also, as busy as I am lately, I welcome a painting that considers balance. And that sometimes we just need to be, and sit with our face in our hands and think.

They each had their own shadow box and food was delivered each day?
