"Spilling Out in France"
12 x 12in oil on museum quality panel
I love the way color, flowers, sunshine and the like can just "spill" out. Like a glass filled to overflowing--it has to go somewhere.
And as spills go, if it's sunshine, flowers, color and the like--France is a great place for it to happen:))!
As promised, the closing chapter in the Atlanta 2012 workshop saga:))
Gary and Aileen Byrd graciously opened their home and hearts to our artist group for our evening get togethers (but really, what else could they do. Leslie is there sister--and you know how hard it can be to tell family no--especially when they're as cute as Leslie;)
Our days were spent in spacious surroundings that is home to many workshops in Atlanta!
Leslie Saeta getting underway with a lesson on color mixing and values:)) She wields a mean palette knife!!
Just a "snapshot"of some of the paintings from the artists on the second day!
And our beautiful group of artists (you too Garry!) in no particular order:))
Brenda, Virginia, Kathleen, Dottie, Suzette, Karen, Mary, Joyce, Wende, Dinah, Connie, Pat, Sharon, Denise, Durinda, Leslie, Jacklyn, Donna, Paula, Dottie, Carolyn, Judy, Linda, Marie, Connie, Robin, Tommye, Sharon, Christine, Theresa, Nancy, Elise, Garry, Raji, and Becky.
Art workshops bring out the best people and the best in people. Artists are a curious lot, ever growing, ever seeking to see things in a new way. They are open, generous to a fault, and lovers of life.
I consider it an extraordinary honor to be able to share what I have learned thus far with folks like these:))
Thank you to all the artists that made Atlanta 2012 GREAT!
