We just completed the first day of our Atlanta workshop and it was wonderful! We have 24 amazing students, all with different backgrounds and levels of painting experience. It is an incredibly fun group and the creative energy in the room today was powerful. There is an incredible feeling of camaraderie and it really does feel as I have known everyone in this workshop for a very long time!
Dreama was "on stage" today and she did an amazing demonstration using her transparent oils technique. Her colors are luscious and I think her demo painting is divine. I am really impressed with all of the paintings that were completed in the class today. I promise to post photos of them tomorrow ... we just ran short of time ...
After class Dreama and I raced back to my brothers house and cooked dinner for everyone. The dinner was good (if I do say so myself) and while enjoying fresh berry cobbler we discussed workshop expectations, experiences, color mixing and selection and selling your art. It was great to just sit around and chat and listen to all of the wonderful comments shared by everyone in the class.
Tomorrow I am the "demo-er" so I better try to get some shut eye. We have another dinner to cook tomorrow night!
