This week has been ‘eye-opening’, for sure.  I have declared 2019 the’ year of color.’

Amazing lessons, workshops and simply working with color has been rewarding.

A new language: color with concept, approach and meaning.

 

Check back, as I am fulfilling 30 painting/ days of color. Join me?

workshop: ‘what if’

 

 

 

 

 

 

The ‘what if’ and ‘then what’ were words in my head this past week at a Skip Lawrence workshop. We focused on shape, edges and color, texture; design elements, those I have been pursuing over and over in my own work and in teaching these many years.

‘Nuance and Design’ were concepts mentioned continuously in Skip’s clever ways; usually with wonderful humor and generating so much laughter.

And, of course, the infamous ‘mostly’, establishing dominance in a painting especially about in use of color, its strong emotive powers, creating connection, unity and variety.

And, how to evaluate one’s own work?

Dominant: Mostly? Enough Contrast to make shapes read? Creative, thoughtful, individual Shapes? Color Variations? Consistency to one Concept? Whew.

A terrific week. Ready to head back to Studio and ready to share these amazing lessons with my students. Stay tuned.
