Jayne and I took a wonderful workshop on collage art taught by Paula Van Huss. These are a few examples of what I did that day. We had so much fun tearing paper, stamping images, gluing, and playing with all kinds of paint and other "stuff"!
Prior to our visit to see the Celebrating Georgia Women Artists Show at the Marietta/Cobb Museum, (Karen won 1st place for pastels...congratulations) Jayne and I stopped for coffee at a wonderful Patisserie named Sugar Cakes. The pasteries were so gorgeous that we just had to photograph them for a future painting. Today, Jayne and I painted these delicious goodies and can't wait to return to sample more. See what Jayne ordered by visiting her blog at Jaynebpastels.blogspot.com
Jayne and I had a fun day today. We visited the museum where Karen's 1st place painting was on display then we spent the rest of the day painting. This is the first painting in the series of three bird nests that I painted today.
Original Pastel 8"x8" Experimenting with different techniques is always fun. This is done on gatorboard, painted with a very wet acrylic wash that ran freely on the board. After it dryed the board was coated with clear pumice gel and it was time to begin the painting!
Original Pastel Wallis Paper 12"X6" As a child, my sisters and I spent countless hours looking at the clouds and playing the "cloud game". I am still fascinated by the formation and the images formed by the clouds!
