Class Catch Ups

I wanted to spend today catching up on the lessons for my two classes. In the Mixed Media Landscape class with Karyn Gartel we added trees and a bottom edge to our canvases. Next week - well, THIS week really, because the lesson will arrive on Monday, we will be adding houses to this little vignette. After today the rest of my time off will be spent finishing up the quilt for our Aunt and getting my lecture stuff ready for next week. I hate last minute panic - so I am trying to have everything ready to go - so that my stress level will be as low as possible!
Last Monday was the final installment of Paulette Insall's "All About Faces Class". I had a great time working on this little piece and am looking forward to many more painting using some of Paulette's great techniques! I find I love her way of using watercolor crayons. Fabulous! This last lesson was about adding elements to tie the painting together. I added flowers, butterflies and the words "Focus on love, light and truth". Now I look forward to Paulette's "Organic Backgrounds"class that begins on May 19th. I think it will really be fun for me to learn more about making my backgrounds textural by using a variety of effects.

At the end of June my class through Joggles with Sharon Boggins begins - and I am really looking forward to it !

Your painting is just beautiful! I must have missed her on the Flickr group. I'm taking the backgrounds class as well and really looking forward to it! It sounds like you're busy with other online classes too which I'll have to check out.
