experiementing again

Am attempting to do some more experiemental pieces.  I feel that I need to get more painterly.  Am looking for more growth possiblility..

Conroe Class, they are wonderful, want to make a permanent group to show together.

Both paintings

Both of these paintings got honorable mentions over the weekend at the Conroe Art Show.  They have asked me to extend my classes another 5 weeks and I have agreed to do so.

My latest project

Lately I have gotten myself into some really not fun things.
I am a member of the &eight artists, which consists of 8 artists that show at Hubbel and Hundson, a high end grocery and food store.  Our project consists of all 8 of us doing 2 parts of a huge painting, these are 18 x 18".  Am so glad to have these done.  This piece will then be auctioned off and donated to a good cause.  I don't do well when I have assignments.  I prefer to stay on taask with my own work..   Sooooooooooooo, they're done.  Need to check the skin tones on the small one, don't think they're that pink.  Am going this afternoon to purchase another camera.  I have fought this old one long enough.

A reminder: am doing a workshop at The Watercolor Society October 5,6 and 7. Anyone interested please let me know. Only 3 people have signed up, so might end up cancelling it.

for class

Finished this one for my class in Conroe tomorrow, I am really having a rough time with the old camera, picture quality is so bad.  Looks like I need to spring for a new one.

Have been working with gold

I dropped my good camera, am filling in with my old old one.  Picture quality is not as good, but haven't had time to shop.

In the Klimt manner.

Finished her out in the Klimt manner


Finally had a chance to go to life drawing today.  I tried 2 different papers, the top is canson 90lb. cold press paper, the bottom is paper for acrylic, given to me by a friend.  They both took the paint completely different.  It was interesting to do the same pose with 2 different papers.

Class on Thursday

This is the image I did as an example for my class starting on Thursday.  I am teaching 4 classes in Conroe in Painting and drawing the figure.  They will work from this photo, what a fun model.  This piece is on mixed media paper, what a disappointment.  I do not like the way this paper takes the paint, and watercolor is out of the question.  Oh well, back to hot press.

Fish again

Obviously I am thinking "fish" again, will get back to the figure by class on Wednesday.  This is not finished but not too far from it.  Have trouble with my new camera.  dropped my old one too many times, but sure don't like the new one.  Will probably invest in a new one soon.  If anyone has an idea of a good camera that takes clear pics let me kinow.
