I am so thrilled! Starting Friday, I will be having my first official mixed-media art class! An Art Class!!! I haven't taken such a thing since my freshman year in high school!!!!!! And in honor of this I am using and abusing the explanation point to no end :)
The Class, Of Towers and Turrets, http://allnorahsart.ning.com/, is presented on-line via All Norah'S Art and is a joint venture by Sharon Tomlinson http://allnorahsart.blogspot.com/ and Deryn Mentock http://somethingsublime.typepad.com/ . Both are very creative and talented artists.
Oh my heart! What an opportunity for me, who lives in the middle of the mitten in the middle of a corn field! My traveling to take a class, as much as I would love to, not really much of a reality at this time!
The banner had me hooked immediately! Then my excitment grew even more as I read on. The dates? WOW! For some reason, some time ago, I had planned to take time off, on those very dates. Don't remember why now, but hey, fate has planned I have a little "stay-retreat" right at home! Who am I to argue with fate? I pushed that paypal button immediately when I came to it.
I've been gleaning what I can from Deryn's blog for some time. I consider her my mentor in the wire arts, her work amazes and inspires me. Her sharing of tips and techniques on her blog are generous and have been an indispensable resource for me.
I wasn't as familiar with Sharon's work, but the moment my eye caught her beautiful faces on the banner for this class, I was hooked! Their color and style appeal to my eye and made my fingers itch to grab a brush and begin backgrounds for a collage. I have since been a regular visitor to her blog.
So forgive me my explanation points! They are very needed. Along with this very big grin as I think of the opportunity to pick up brush and spread paint. To cut images and spread gel medium. To learn to cut metal and shape it and solder with a torch.
I am ready for the journey. Won't you join me?!
Love ya, Love your art,
