Workshop 2 Completed 

My second wet-on-wet workshop is completed, and I am very pleased with the paintings.   This workshop took a bit more time to complete, but the extra time was well worth it. I am so proud of my art students!! Good job!

First Workshop is in the Books 

My first wet-on-wet oil painting workshop was a huge success!  The ladies who participated had never painted before, so they were a bit skeptical about it.  Now they know they can do it! 

Great job ladies!

I Got A Rock

Remember when the Peanuts character, Charlie Brown, got a rock instead of candy while trick-or-treating?  Well, I got a rock…and I painted it! 

The gif image shows the steps of the painting process. The smooth stone was first primed with white gesso (3 layers), then painted with acrylic paints.  I sealed the water surface with gloss medium and will coat the rest of the rock with matte medium.  This should seal it sufficiently for an outdoor display. A very enjoyable painting experience!
