First of all, I want to thank all of you for your expressions of empathy and sympathy over my cold. I am almost never, ever sick but once in awhile something takes hold. I am in the lingering annoying hacking cough stage which should continue for a few more days. In the meantime, I have been busy working on some sketches for the upcoming workshop, finding and printing examples, creating handouts, outlines, yadda yadda yadda. I didn't feel much like painting and I am not at all motivated to finish the painting I started in the workshop. It has serious mistakes, which is fine, but not worth spending more time and paint on. After waiting so long to learn the secret of Karen's technique, I find I have moved on and don't want to paint in such a realistic manner! One of life's little ironies. I did gain a lot in watching her. I think what I will take away is how purposeful each brush stroke is in execution and deliberate color.

Two new books arrived from Amazon which I am anxious to work with but that will have to wait until April when I will have lots of time to experiment and really play. The books are Creative Paint Workshop for Mixed-Media Artist by Ann Baldwin and Rethinking Acrylic. .. radical solutions for exploiting the worlds most versatile medium by Patti Brady.

My turn to sit at the Gallery again tomorrow, so I should have a chance to read and flag all the things I want to go back to when time permits.
