"Light Hearted in France"
6 x 6in oil on museum quality panel
Hmmm....talk about heart healthy..a stress free jaunt in France...that should do it! If it looks like one of the roses is missing here, it's because you just cut one to tuck behind your ear (after first having buried nose in said rose and inhaling deeply) before you headed off to class--it helps when you're local to speak the language...:)--no one said it hurt if the teacher happened to be cute as well.
Of course, listening to Stacey Kent's Raconte Moi helps put you in the mood....to learn the language of course.
And in other news:
Carol Marine, one of the most well known of the daily painters and a super artist and lady will be our guest this Thursday, July 1st, 12 noon EST, on Artists Helping Artists blog radio show. We have lots to talk with Carol about and will be opening the phone lines for all your great questions and comments! Check sidebar on my blog for details on calling in. Remember--the shows are recorded as well for later listening. Please help spread the word to your fellow artists about the show--Thanks!
Leslie Saeta and I have been having some awesome discussions via phone on how to make our September workshop an unforgettable, extreme learning experience. I am learning things from Leslie about color and how to make your work have it's own signature look--and that's just with talking to her--just think of getting to see how she lays the paint down with the knife! Stay tuned as we are each going to have a video addition on our sites to give you more information on what we plan to cover in this workshop set. Click here for more info
And another thing--a bit of an unusual request. But no one as ever accused me of being...usual. Romiley Jack took my women's artist retreat back in the spring. Romiley is an artist without brushes....she's an actress! She has sent in her audition tape to "host your own show" that Oprah is sponsoring. We can vote on our favorite. Romiley is one of us--a generous, talented, lovely human being---and who doesn't like to see good girls win?? Here is the link to see her video audition and to vote. Let's be part of pushing her to the top! (hint, you can vote more than once..:)
And, the pressure is building --- people are wanting to see paintings of Eddie. I am hoping these are genuine requests and not something Eddie has engineered....so if he agrees to model, I will be adding a painting or two of Ed to the mix. Just a heads up in case you are a fan of Eddie's. He tells me has fans. He also says he doesn't shed.....
