Sorry I have been trying to keep up with my class and had to stop posting here to get a little extra time for my quick studies class. I liked this series of cups but I got my worst grade on them so... see what I know. Apparently I have a lot of tangents in them. Actually this piece has a tangent where the spoon tip touches the tiny cup. When this class is over I would like to actually take these quick studies to completed paintings.
I just got some big news. I took 1st and 2nd in oil painting at the Lodi Art Annual which will be at the "Woodbridge Winery" the weekend of March 19th, 20th and 21st.
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
