"Once Upon a Time" Fairytale To Be Painting

This was one of many still life setups occupying (with my help) the Great Falls School of Art for Tuesday's classes. It became what filled my canvas today.

In choosing locations for my Plein Air Landscape class or objects and arrangements for Still Life, I realize just how personal choice of subjects are. What I need to teach is how to align what you paint with what calls to you as communicator, as artist.  Tough task but that's just what I've had to teach and learn myself.

As you'd guess, my Fall classes are underway.

If you haven't already ... make a point to see my "Along the Way" exhibit at the Great Falls Library (VA) before it come down on September 30. Preview the exhibit online here. More info on the library open hours here.

Thanks for reading!
