Sign up for an art class

Today I play the role of teacher. I am stepping out of my comfort zone, my art studio and into the realm of the classroom. I think this helps me to become better at what I do because it forces me to think about how I do it. I have always been the student. I have been very fortunate to have found some excellent teachers and mentors….in the classroom, Online and Mother Nature.                                                    
I am active at two Arts Councils in my area. The Finger Lakes Arts Council in Auburn, NY at http://www.fingerlakesarts.org/   and Seneca County Arts Council in Seneca Falls,NY. http://www.artsinseneca.org/. We offer some great classes full of creative students. I would love to hear about YOUR favorite classes.

A Visitor to my studio

Last week my sister-in-law Julie came out to play. She wanted to learn how I do my mixed media pictures. She got right to “work”. Dived right in! I painted along side of her for instructions. I had my 30 in 30 to do. It was fun having someone to play with in my studio. Usually it is just me and the dogs πŸ• 🐢.I really should look into this idea for future classes. Nice job JulieπŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ¨. It will make a nice gift for Rose and Joe’s new pad. 

Got my cup of coffee β˜•οΈ

I can’t remember if I have talked about this before. I seemed to have developed a ritual before I start painting. I make a cup of coffee, set the timer and get my art apron on. Now it’s time to paint. I really enjoy the whole process of painting from deciding what my composition will be to what colors I want to use. Some of it requires a little planning and some of it I do intuitively. I am feeling so grateful that I get to do this almost every day.
