Diving Deeper

The author's favorite illustration from last week.

I forgot to teach my workshop this morning, if any students see this I am so sorry. It is all my fault. We went on a trip this weekend and my kids were out of school Monday and Tuesday, it messed my thoughts up. But I shouldn't make excuses, I know it was a big inconvenience. I hope we can still have fun next Wednesday. I can't wait to paint again, really miss it and look forward to the workshop.

Painting is a whole different skill set and it doesn't transfer automatically. My Favorite illustration from the week:

Textured Red Wine

Need a little wine for Valentine's Day? "Soft, Spicy Red", 9" x 12", $85.00. I have been working with textures in preparation for teaching an acrylic workshop this Wednesday and Saturday at MAD Arts in Madison, VA.

Also still working on my illustration project. The images are getting more unique and a little psychedelic. This is what I had hoped would happen; I am arriving at something new once I exhaust all the obvious solutions.
