Three Pear Demo, 12 x 12
Whew! I taught a 2-day workshop this weekend, now over, and it was so much fun! I always get nervous ahead of time about doing a decent demo, keeping my thoughts straight, being able to say what I mean, and just connecting in general. It went great -- it was an honor for me to have painters travel from Alabama, Florida and North Carolina, as well as from here in Georgia, of course - what a terrific and friendly group. As usual, I'm pretty certain that I learned more than they did. Above is a pear demo by me, and below is a study done by Kathy Broyles, from Atlanta, which is fresh and wonderful! Coincidentally, she won the "lottery" for the demo above. I am exhausted, but continue to be gratified that so many good painters want to spend some time with me as the teacher.
