We have one last class left in this series ...next week
some of us will continue on our work in progress.
Some will start new work.
We will possibly add texture, collage, stencil & transfers.
If you're in the neighborhood, maybe come play with us?









I brought a large finished 36 x 48 canvas as an example
of a canvas that I didn't feel was working overall, 
(event though I thought it had some good spots).





So it was a candidate for a gesso whitewash, and a new start.




But Connie thought it shouldn't be whitewashed,
so I sent it home with her.

. . .

I hope you have a lovely weekend,
and if time allows, stop by tomorrow for a visit ...
it will be a cool bunch of close ups!
Intriguing?  I hope do.









A smile for Saturday ...
