Welcome to a Brand New Day - SOLD!

10"x8" oil on linen mounted on board

What a day of fun. Getting together with a group of like-minded artists is usually a pretty enjoyable event, add in some gorgeous scenery, phenomenal food, a picnic by a river in France mid-day (with food we had selected at an open air market in the morning), and painting in our own private garden was pretty incredible. Yesterday was filled with great demos and some painting time. 

Now for the experience of trying new things...when you've been painting one way for many, many years, and start introducing some new ideas, there is always a learning curve.  Dreama Tolle Perry uses almost all transparent paint colors. I had not seen this used quite to this extent. So it's quite a different method of working for me than Henry Hensche's methods.  But, wanting to introduce some new thoughts in here, I've opended Pandora's box. Camile Przwodek had said to us in one of her classes, "once Pandora's box is open & all that new knowledge comes flying out, you can't put it back in the box. You then have to decide how to deal with it".  So in other words, you have to decide how to deal with what you've just learned.  So I think the instruction is going to be interesting - and I'll be trying out some new things, and deciding how I might pull some of this into my own work.
