Well, I've spent plenty of time out of the studio lately. I've done some cool things and met some new friends. Here's what I've been up to.
•I gave an Art Talk at the Nashville School of the Arts. It was really cool seeing the talent of those students. I was able to see a few of their works and talk about my journey in the art world. I probably enjoyed the visit more than they did, but you never know what they could have taken from what I shared.
•I've spend several hours going through all my photos looking for subjects for new painting. I'm not going to share what they are just yet, but I'm hoping to start one this week.
•I found a new beeswax supplier. I wanted to find someone closer to home, so I messaged the Nashville Beekeepers Association. Now I will use beeswax from right here in Middle TN. Barry is my new supplier and he gave me some wax from different stages and a bunch of old beekeeper magazines. Pretty cool stuff. I'm going to try to transfer ink from one of the magazines.
•Next month I'll be offering classes at Picture This in Hermitage. I worked on the details and what we would be creating. More info coming out soon.
So now I'm going to melt some wax, paint a few small pieces, and plan my next larger painting. I'll be back soon. RLP
