I taught one painting class at Art and Soul on Friday called, "The American Still Life". It was a-m-a-z-i-n-g....really. Truly. Like puffy heart awesome. I want to go back....now.
So, "the American Still Life".... I called it that because as a general rule my own personal work is like a giant still life painting of all things American. I don't know if you realize this or not, but 90% of the images used in my paintings that are more "realistic" in nature have been photographed by moi. I in fact set up a "still life" with a truck, camper, bike, or boat. It's fun. It's like I lay the composition out through the viewfinder on my Canon. So this was the background to the class and the description on the website. Anyhoo, back to the class which was a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Seriously. First of all, by the time I got to the room at like 8:30 half the class was in the room and ready to go! I LOVE that!! I'd also met a few registering that were grinning from ear to ear ready to start the day. So how could it possibly had gone bad with that much happy energy in the room?
See...good thing I didn't know about her wicked good skills before she got there or else I'd have been intimidated! Cool fact, we were both in Somerset Home a few issues back!
See you VERY soon. I've got so much more to share about the retreat. Wooohooo Art and Soul!!
