I’m unpacked now (mostly). I’ve even repainted my bedroom a soft green with a touch of pearl.. The construction crew is busy outside my studio adding a portal (porch) to the entrance of the studio. The reason for this is to store the wood I will need this winter to keep the studio warm . This will keep not only the wood dry but offer an inviting entrance to the studio. Can’t wait until it is finished.
While they are putting on the portal I am trying to get my garden in shape for the season. With all the rain we have had the garden is getting lush.
Working in my garden always puts me in the mood to paint a few florals.
IS YOUR ARTIST’S GARDEN GROWING?
Even if you don’t normally paint flowers knowing how to achieve sensuality in a subject matter gives your paintings new meaning. The techniques necessary to create a luscious floral painting can be translated to any subject. I also find that focusing on a subject that is out of your norm will free up your creativity in unexpected ways.
In my Sensual Floral workshop you will learn about organic design, transparent glowing colors, and backgrounds that support your subject. The workshop will be in my studio which is just steps from my garden so you’ll be working near a constant source of inspiration.
Just in case you have wondered if you should take a workshop, let me help you with this decision. Here are a few reasons…
Workshops offer an environment that nurtures artistic growth, excitement and enthusiasm.
They allow you to get out of your comfort zone and discover a whole new creative world.
Workshops stimulate creativity and isn’t that what we are all about?
Meeting new art friends that share in your success.
Travel opens your mind to new ideas.
You will create new exciting paintings, eat delicious food, discuss art and laugh for five incredible days…WOW!
This year give yourself a gift.? Take a workshop.? Tell those you love that a gift certificate to a workshop would be fabulous for your birthday, anniversary, or just to say “ I love you.” Instead of more “stuff” that you forget about in a few months…give the gift that keeps on giving, painting after painting.
