Re-entry is not for the fainthearted. Yes, I'm "retired", but I can't remember the last time I was out of town for 10 days, and generally I don't come back STUFFED with ideas and artistic energy. So, because of that, a synopsis of my last few days will have to wait. Right now all my extra time is being devoted to (other than the 5 loads of laundry, unpacking, paying bills, etc etc,), using what I've learned as quickly as possible, so it sticks.
Here's a painting I started before coming. It got a pretty good reaction during the 'big critique' on Wednesday afternoon, but the artist, Linda Baker, suggested at the least adding a lot more of the dark blue into the area in the bottom. This I did, when I got home, then got really brave and used the technique Judy Morris taught us to add the patterning to the "moon". I'm liking it pretty well - I don't THINK I've ruined it yet.
Yes, a follow up will be posted. If you are waiting for it, be sure to post a comment, so I know!!! I could use some motivation . . .
