A couple weeks ago, I went to a workshop with Katie Kendrick in the beautiful little town of Coupeville, Wa. The weather was beautiful (although I thought it was funny that the locals were saying how "hot" it was. it was lows in the 50's and highs in the low 70's. shawl weather for me! lol)
I love this little town, Coupeville. There were some pretty great restaurants too.
If you ever get the chance to take one of her workshops, please do. I really feel I evolved and grew during that week. She helped me create wonderful mistakes….got me to the uncomfortable spot of creating…and then followed our intuition to this lovely place of self-expression. thank you Katie, love you!
I'm so excited to announce Primitive Portraits 2. This is a follow-up to my first Primitive Portraits class. The 1st Primitive Portraits would be a pre-requisite for this class.
There are 6 full projects which includes learning to add texture with muslin fabric and wax. We will do more......by doing less. We will work quickly and intuitively. I will demo how to distress the facial features to create an amazing "un-done" appeal.
And I'm so so thrilled to announce that Christina Romeo is our guest artist!! Her work is so emotional and soulful. I can't wait to share her process with you. Seeing her work back in 2007 inspired me to start trying my hand at painting faces. Christina has been my biggest inspiration these last 7 years and I'm am so thankful and blessed that I happened upon her work through etsy. Seeing her work and watching her evolve has truly changed my life.
Class starts August 18th
early bird registration - through August 11th: $59
I have new originals available in the shop. I am finally back to work after moving my studio and hurting my toe in the process. Working makes me feel normal again. I tend to become neurotic and stressed if I don't paint.....
Gracie, you came into our lives to inspire us.
You learned to sit.
You learned to walk on a leash.
You brought us joy.
Even though you were timid and a tad anxious,
you gave love.
You adjusted quickly and soon claimed the "toy box" as your bed.
God showed me resilience through a small soul whose heart is not.
You truly lived up to your name.
May your new home be filled with love. And may you teach others as you have subtly taught me that love is not limited.....it just expands more and more. You are true Grace, my sweet girl.
She is Grace among the chaos.
Gracie girl, I hope you have a wonderful life with your new forever home. You'll always be right here....in my heart
