I didn't see the webinar on the email, I don't think anyway, but I did see the big red information strip on the new website telling us about it.
Aroha! Lisa :-)

There was a message sent out from Online Art Lessons. It had some new classes listed and a notice for the live class at the bottom with a timer.
Sent 27th Sept., Might want to check and see if it ended up in junk mail.

 :doh: Val you are a twit at times!  :D    :2funny:

The painting looks much better now, any chance you can give a bit more life to the bubbles? ie: get them lighter perhaps a tiny spot of white to highlight them? Just a thought!

Thanks Bhavna and Val! And here it is with a little touch of white in the bubbles! It's time to end this toast and head over to Alsace, which is my next painting!
Cheers,
Sharon

Oh, don't want to disappoint you - I meant my next painting will be of Alsace. I visited there many, many years ago - just an overnight on my own while I was visiting some friends in Germany. I fell in love with this charming place! How old were you when you left there, Annie? It's definitely a place I wish to return to and i'm excited to paint a picture of it!
Cheers,
Sharon

Sharon,
I understood it was about your next painting, not necessarely that you were going to travel there.

5 y.o. but spent many summers there until my early 30's.  I must have seen nearly every villages in the Haut-Rhin.

I have dreamt about painting some buildings with there charming pots of flowers on window seels... when I grow up and become an artist!  Or maybe after I finish the basic lessons on landscape.  ::)

Also I would like to paint a nest of cigogne (I think it is stork in English), not that I know how.  Those big birds were almost extinct during the second war.

I cannot wait to see what you will choose to paint.  Have fun  :painting:

Annie - I hope you paint a picture of Alsace too - I bet a lot of emotion will come through since it's so meaningful to you.

Thank you, Mea!  Thrilled you think this is recognizable as mine - all part of finding that voice.

Thanks Val - if we're ever in Carmel or anywhere together I'll get us a bottle of Veuve Cliquot (my favorite) and we'll share a toast!!!
Cheers,
Sharon

If Sharon brings Veuve Clicquot who care about straws Val?

My grandfather (he survived camps) used to say 'I rather drink Champagne in a clog (wooden shoe, the Alsacian one are slighly different the the Holland/dutch ones) then water in a crystal glass'.

Gee, do you think we could meet somewhere for a weekend?  PM me if interested, I am willing to find best optio s for those interested... and Mea you would have to sync your Cape Cod trip with it.
