Work in Progress – My Big Idea


Stage 1: Collage of papers.`


Stage 2: Adding some paint to the shapes.

In my many, MANY attempts at a vineyard -inspired painting for “Lushes with Brushes,” I decided to start over. Here is what I call, “Stage 2.” At least, I call it that today. It could become stage 3 or 4. Working out my painting process when I don’t really know my painting process is not so easy. But the fun of painting on the Monaco Family Vineyard with six people this Fall will be worth it.




Work in Progress or, I’m Back BABY!

Work in Progress or, I'm Back BABY!

I just started an e-course on intuitive painting with Flora Bowley, http://braveintuitiveyou.com/. Though I saw her work last year and LOVED it! I was skeptical about the idea of an “e-course.” As my computer programmer husband refers to them, MOOCs (pronounced “MOCKS”) Massive Open Online Classes are a new thing for me and I wasn’t sure I would even finish it. And I haven’t finished it, in fact, it’s only day 2, but I am SO PLEASED with how this way of thinking, mainly reassuring a way of thinking we all have in us, is helping me with my mixed media work. What fun!


“Sprinkles” of Paint
