New Painting plus Artfest 2012 Student Work

I've said in a previous post that I find great value in an idea journal.  I draw every crazy thought that I have, even if a lot of them don't become anything.  It's so great to look through the journal and pick a drawing to make into a painting.
I have also been recording for an online class.  I have recorded 3 paintings so far (this one is not one of them) but still haven't gotten happy with the outcome.  I felt on all 3 paintings that I was just too slow.  I finally realized as I painted this one that that's just how I work!  I think it was good for me to try a few times before I put something out there for you all to see.  It will be a much better class as a result.  I still have to start over but at least I will know I did my very best when it's ready!

Also, I wanted to post some of the paintings to come out of my "Story Pieces" class at Artfest.  The beautiful ladies in this class just amazed me with their creativity and talent:

how wonderful that you are putting so much care into your class and how you offer it. I love watching art unfold, even if it is slow, that is a good way to learn. please put me on your mailing list for your class.

love your piece too, both sketch and completed piece. so fun to take in.

Thank you so much, Tammie! I already have you on the list. I'm sure I won't get to complete it before the fall with all the summer stuff that goes on around here....but you never know! I appreciate your interest and your support! I can always count on you to leave a sweet, uplifting comment!
