|funky student work from Create NJ 2013|
Back to business.
|this was by far one of my most favorite pieces for the week!|
I had the pleasure of teaching at Create Mixed Media Retreats in Somerset, NJ last week. This was my second year at this event and it was even better than the first. I truly enjoyed meeting up with gals I met last year and making new friends for the future. I am so blessed that I get to live this dream of the full time artist and the people who attend my classes are instrumental in making it happen.
Geeze. Now I'm getting all sappy. (Maybe my sore mouth is affecting my edge.)
Since I obviously have nothing witty nor insightful to say maybe it's time for a photo dump from the retreat! These paintings are from my class "release your creative spirit", a class on working intuitively. If you ever have the chance to take this class, seriously, do it! It will up your confidence level 10 fold! Ready...Set...
|just love the exaggerated features here|
|this artist is trained as an architect. it took a little coaxing to get her to see past buildings but so worth it in the end|
|i had a few students who worked on more than 1 painting at a time. this gal worked on this one and the portrait below.|
|totally different than the bird she painted. I LOVE this piece.|
|Here's a closeup of the fabulous headpiece from the earlier painting. Beautiful|
|sweet blue bird by another lady. great dry brush technique|
|here's a piece still in progress but well on it's way|
|i like the juxtaposition of the larger face with the tiny figure to the left.|
