With vacation over it was time to get back to arting; and what better way to jump back into creativity than a few classes at Art and Soul? As usual, it was a wonderful time with friends and talented teachers. I spent a little time today touching up and finishing a couple of pieces that I want to share with my art group tomorrow.
This was done in Katie Kendrick's "Tales from the Land of Odd" workshop. Katie creates wonderful, whimsical art and is, also, a patient and engaged teacher. The inspiration for my painting was the work of Gustav Klimt.
Can you see that this was done in quadrants before being assembled and worked as a whole? The base of my mixed media piece is a photo taken by my daughter, Jessica, blown-up in four laser print copies.
Tracy Bunkers teaches the technique in her "Surreal Uber Paintings" workshop. This was a super-fun exploration of paint and collage.
I'll post about my class with Albie Smith next time since I didn't manage to get photos done of my little book of paste papers.
