I became ambitious today and created a painting with the techniques I learned in Anne's class last week-end. I used a 4X4 canvas. I liked working small.
I'm beginning to notice elements in an image rather than just looking at the whole..
This was too much fun. Want to do more.
I'm procrastinating about the stuff that really needs to get done.. Like getting the house ready to sell. (2 weeks)
There is always tomorrow. My famous last words.
Creativity feeds the soul, house cleaning doesn't do a thing for me. It actually wears me out.

It's amazing how a group of women artists can get together (not knowing each other) and bond so quickly.
Anne Grgich taught a "Landscapes Of The Mind Class" this weekend. What fun!. She made a special trip from Seattle just to teach us her techniques. She's so generous.
We hung out together and spent the whole week-end getting to know each other,
I feel we will be connected for a long time. I hope we can continue to do this at least once a year.
It's almost a let down to not have this to look forward to. Oh, but what good memories.
Right now I have to concentrate on getting my house ready to sell. UG I'd rather be making art.
