New Friends and Old Friends
Welcome to my new venture that's a combination of inspiring ways and some classes to help out my little man Rainer (who is severely Autistic) and our family in general.
L-R: my boys Rainer and Mackinley
My first canvas class is obviously inspired by a number of mixed media Artists who have made a huge difference in the way I see myself as an Artist and creater of "things".
Sneak of first class being offered soon.
Most recently it has been Christy Tomlinson and her 2 workshops; but prior to that there are many others who have simply Inpsired.
Here's a less-than-comprehensive list:
(in no particular order)
Kelly Rae Roberts
Julie Fei-Fan Balzer
(and I know I've missed some...sorry)
So, I will begin by providing a blanket DISCLOSURE......
ALL my pieces are a direct result from reading their book/blog/website, taking a class or two, watching videos, step x step videos or articles and just generally stalking......as you would in an Art Gallery. Drinking it all in, taking a few notes, then going home. Then at some point one of those techniques or images will work it's way into my pieces.
Butterfly using a crackle technique by Claudine Hellmuth;
Background stenciling inspired by Julie Balzer.
I hope you will stay with me while it evolves and grows into some place you'll want to come back to time and time again.
Here's to Creating!!
