Hello dear readers! How's life?
Summer is zipping by and the chaos is evident all over the house...from the torn up closets, dripping bathing suits, half unpacked suitcases and the mounds of laundry I can't keep up with but you know what? I'm over it. Life is crazy so why fight it? I'm trying to do the best I can and just stay sane!
Speaking of chaos - check out what I've done to my dining room! ha! Yup...Mama needed more ART SPACE! ;) You might be noticing the odd contraption I have set up here....well....
here's the news - I've finally decided (gotten brave enough) to start filming my creative process so I can begin to offer online classes and tutorials. Sharing my passion and love for Art through teaching seems like the natural next step to take. A little fact you may not know about me - I was an Art teacher at a Montessori school in Texas, in fact I created the Art Program there since they didn't have one! It was amazing teaching the children and since we are all a bit like kids around paint, I figure I should transition to teaching adults okay right? ;)
Anyway, here is a sneak peek at the first video...the full length, teaching video is still in post production but should be ready soon! The full video will show my creative process as I work through an Intuitive Painting. You will get to watch as I create a piece from start to finish. I have no plan when I sit down to paint (that's where the intuition bit comes in) - just a palette of 5 or 6 colors to start with and a blank canvas! I will show you many techniques and tips as I journey through the work with you. I'm SO excited and scared but I hope you will enjoy this first little snippet. I've never done editing or filming before so I've got a ways to go! Enjoy!
