So much texture and colour.

   When people come to the studio to do the Excavating Layers workshop they are expecting to make a 12" x24" canvas. But more often than not they walk away with 4 finished pieces. 
   The first time I taught this workshop, at the last minute I decided that I would have them do some practicing with the texture layers and colours on 3 small 5" x7" canvas boards. To my surprise and the students delight they worked out so well that they ended up with 4 finished pieces of art at the end of two days. Sometimes they do similar styles on all three boards and end up with a tryptic and sometimes they try a variety of styles and end up with 3 separate pieces. 
   This weekends I had two wonderfully creative students in the studio. They did a great job on all of their canvases.
Charlotte- 5" x 7"

Charlotte- 12" x 24"

Jane- 5" x 7"

Jane- 12" x 24"
   I hope you are finding some creative time this Victoria Day weekend.

Happy Creating!

Gel Plate fun.

   I had such great fun this past Saturday teaching the Gel Plate Layers workshop. It had been way too long since I last found time to play with my gel plates. This group of ladies were wonderfully playful and creative.
    The gel plate had captivated my attention so much that I almost forgot to take pictures and when I did remember I only had time for a few. So these are mostly prints in progress. 




   They were very productive and did some great work. Sorry I didn't capture more for you.
   I am off to play with my gel plates now.

Happy Creating!
