Donna Downey's Abstract Florals class

Donna Downey offered her Abstract Florals class online this fall. And I am taking it, yay!  What a great birthday present from my FIL and SIL and her husband. Thank you! It's about learning to become free in your painting, beginning to understand  how your tools can become your friends (this takes time!), and how contrast can make your art work come off the page.  Oh, I can't leave out Color, many, beautiful colors and how they play with each other.  What a great class! I highly recommend it to those who are interested in acrylic painting. Keep up with her activities at .
This is painting #1 & #2 of week 1.

These are paintings #9, #10, #11 & #12.  Practice does bring improvement!

Finishing up week 1 with a painting on a cradled board. And having fun!
Join me!
Thanks for visiting,

New things going on!

Today we created a promo video for our new company, White Iris Arts!  So it must be real:-) White Iris Arts was created by Brenda Holtzman and myself to promote Artist Workshops and Retreats, and some of our own original art.  It's been months in the making so it's pretty exciting to have something to finally announce!
Our first workshop will Intro to Encaustics by Shari Replogle.  Find more info at White Iris Arts and visit Shari's site to see her amazing work.

Thanks for stopping by!
