Acrylic

We are really having fun with abstracts.

Had a new student join our class today and she shows a lot of promise.  Check out her watercolor freehand work for the first day.  Welcome to the class - LaVerne Kaluhiokalani.


Note the blue practice scratchings in the foreground.  That's my new favorite color - Blue Denim from the Arteza paint company.  Love it.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Mea, you are one special lady to bring such happiness into the lives of these Seniors. You have given them a joyous outlet which they otherwise would never have had or explored. 


Your new student LaVerne certainly does show a lot of promise and it will be interesting to follow her progress.


Keep up the wonderful work Mea.

I have a new student in my kupuna art class. Today was "show-me-what-you-can-do" time while I helped my regulars finish up their chocolate paintings. He may have a thing or two to teach me about acrylics! This guy knows what he's doing, so I'm just going to let him run with it. Way to go, Silk!
