Thanks, Patricia.

Here's the latest - an acrylic painting on 3 x 9 inch wrapped canvas.  This was easy enough to do in about 100 minutes.  They were really excited about this one.  I am so proud of how much progress they have made.


The full scene is one of the most beautiful spots in Hawaii.

Thanks, Bill and Patricia.  I truly enjoy working with them.  The Japanese couple leave this week to go back to Japan until December, then they'll be back again for the winter.   They were so sad to leave the class.

I introduced my seniors to abstract art today.  We practiced with the Ken Oliver Color Burst powder.  They loved it.


Next week, we will try acrylics on canvas abstracts.
