I hope I never get too old to learn, so I’m taking an online portrait and painting class, I’m trying to sharpen my drawing skills. It is such a delight learning in my pj’s from the young and fabulous teacher, Jodi Ohl. Class materials are drawing pencils 2B-9B and Silks Acrylic paint- which contain mica flakes. When the paint dries, it has a matte shimmery luscious finish. Having fun fun with THIS homework……….
Yesterday I took a little art trip with an art buddy of mine and her sweet grandson. Our destination for this fabulous retired art teacher field trip was Carolina Artists Colony in Sanford, NC, what a treasure of a store. Over 100 North Carolina artists exhibit there, and I’ve put my name on the waiting list. Check out their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/carolinaartistscolony?ref=ts&fref=ts
As I was tidying up my studio space today I realized I had organized my “desk” just like I used to arrange my teacher’s desk at school before I retired. There was one main difference, MY homework was on my desk.
