I got to feel like a real artist yesterday! I wandered into a gallery in Old Town last wednesday and saw a flyer for a painting workshop, so I went home and looked up the details and we decided we could afford one day : )! The workshop was with Joan Fullerton who describes herself as an intuitive artist, how perfect. She was a riot and so much fun! I could go on and on about the wonderful day I had (9:30am-5pm) but I’ll keep it short. My table mates were a hoot! 3 ladies who came down from Wyoming together. And being in the Fine Art and Frame Gallery was just so inspiring! Here are some shots from the day:
We started the first session with something call Monoprint making, which is what you see at the top of this blog post. I was a little bummed at first because this is what they were supposed to be doing the next day, and Saturday was supposed to be all about abstract with hints of reality – which is what I was super excited about. But the print making turned out to be such a free-ing exercise and so much fun! (I looked into buying some of the materials for that when I got home…so keep an eye out for more of these). Then after lunch we got into some collaging > I’ll post some of those tomorrow.
Here are some more examples of my monoprints:
