Last night I taught my first class in Asheboro at Nikki Needham's and Betsy Brown's new gallery called Colorshow Gallery. It was fabulous! I had so much fun with all the ladies that came to join us for Van Gogh's swirling paint and a glass of wine. Here are the pictures. They speak for themselves! The paintings turned out fabulous! I hope to offer more classes like this on a monthly basis in the fall. Let me know if you want to join us next time!
Currently on the easel:
Vibrant, Dark, Magical, Vivid... but is it finished? Believe it or not, I'm working from an image of Bur-Mill park in Greensboro! Here's the original image so that you can see what I add through the painting process. I had to force myself to stop so that I could leave that warm coral color in there. Sometimes the best thing you can do to a painting is leave it alone and think about it for a few days. I love where this one is going... but is it there yet?
... I think it's there!
