I’m such a lucky duck! I just returned home from Springfield, where I wrapped up a four day painting workshop at the Emerald Art Center. Springfield, Oregon is also pretty lucky, as they have an amazing art center right in the heart of their downtown. It is a beautiful facility that houses a lovely, large and well lite gallery space, light filled classrooms for workshops, a library and all the other amenities like a kitchen, storage etc. They host top-notch workshops from nationally known instructors. Check out their website. It’s impressive.
My kids were hard working and motivated. A lot was accomplished in the four days….mileage, mileage, mileage. Our class was lucky to have Carol Marine as a student! Boy, was that fun. She is a delight and shared her experience and knowledge with the group. I’m so happy to have connected with her!

One of my demos started out kinda rocky! About halfway through, I thought I might have bitten off a little more than I could chew. Luckily, I heeded my own advice, left the section that I was troubling over and began working the whole piece. I found my way and was able to go back and readdress the unresolved section with more clarity and less frustration.
