A Pastel Acorn
The acorn above was done for a challenge at Let's Make Art, unfortunately, it was done rather quickly and I didn't add the detail nor take the time with it I should have. However, my husband came home from work and saw it and wanted to frame it right away! If men have a hard time understanding women, it's nothing compared to women trying to understand them! Oh, well----
I'm getting rather excited about a new online watercolor site/class I've signed up for at Lori Andrew's Come Paint With Me Ning site. She's a fun person and there are many levels of painting skill within the members so I've already learned much from them. I think I told you about another class I'd joined online that I was kind of disappointed in and which has pretty much come to a stand still. Fortunately, I didn't pay for that class!
Anyway, Lori is a go-getter and is setting up her classes so we can interact with her online. This is both exhilarating and frightening! For one thing, I guess I need to get a web cam so I can show my painting for critique during the class. I've never been comfortable painting in front of others so I hope I don't freeze up completely.
Also, I think I'm going to have to move my computer onto my work table or set up some kind of space for painting near my computer to make this all work. That's kind of a dangerous situation for me! I can be a klutz sometimes but I think I can leave my computer where it is, put my mat cutter away and use that table for painting and keep my water container away from the computer stuff. Right now I'm not sure how to arrange everything so I can paint and compute at the same time.
Well, I'm sure it will all work out. I just like to have things all worked out before any event so I'm not caught unprepared but it will be awhile before the first class so maybe I have time to work it all out.
I'll keep ya posted!
