Woven Thoughts

But quick.

Today was the last day of still life class for the Winter term.  It was also my sixth day teaching in the last eight days. Tomorrow marks seven in nine. Not the norm. Phew.

For my Portrait Painting Workshop (which was REALLY great!), I purchased some Amazon coupons for G Street Fabrics -- $25 for $50 of fabrics. The result of that shopping trip -- lots of fabrics helped complement our fantastic models and made the scene in front of my hard-working class exciting indeed.

One of those fabrics was this pretty turquoise cloth that wove its way into one of the still life setups today.

Thus, a new painting was born.

"French Horseman" Accepted into the Art League's Small Works Exhibit
That was good news. And, unusually, Randy and I only took one piece down to the Art League for receiving. So -- no picking up the second piece. (Only one can get into the monthly show.) Yea!!!!
