Lesson 5 and at the half way mark . . .



Wow, it's been a busy week or art, b-day celebration, reading and a new online class starting up with SuziBlu. The pictures posted are the 5th lesson in Julie Prichard's Layer of Love class. The object was to find a picture as inspiration and use the colors to create our piece. Well, my inspiration was a bit lighter in color, but I love the richness of the purples and golden colors my finished painting turned out to have. By the fifth lesson I can tell I am getting more comfortable with the process and can't wait to use these pages in a journal at the end of class. Julie is starting a journal class in September, I think I may just have to take a stab at that one, too! Yesterday I saw the Body Works exhibit in Balboa Park and it was fascinating! A fun day of lunch at the Prado for Linda's B-day and then an afternoon at an excellent museum exhibit. Last night was the Affirmation Card exchange group and after that - home to bed, it was a full day! My days are filled with art and at night I find myself dreaming of colors and shading and mastering technique. I am visiting with my mom and sister next week, but will be home in time to take another Karen O'Brien class at Stamping Details - I love her classes, can't wait to show you what we do in there!

ok. more on KR...new website and blog. In her FAQ she addresses why she doesn't take comments...so she doesn't write for an audiance and can just come from her h.e.a.r.t. Holy CRAP. Of course she writes for an audiance. Blogs are for audiances..and journals are for personal. Man, that's a train wreck I love to watch...ok, I did post a comment...but did it anonymous (or however you spell it)...I'm guessing I'll get deleted. but I'll love every minute of it.
Hugs.

Hi Deborah,

I LOVE your Lesson 5! Gorgeous colors. Looks as if you've mastered Julification. Can't wait to see the pieces you've finished from all the Karen O'Brien critters you were working on yesterday.
