student paintings

These two paintings were done by two of my local students. The first one by Anthony Hall is a life drawing done in conte over a black and sepia ink pour. He allowed some of the ink forms to become shaded areas for the figures. White conte was used to emphasise the highlighted areas. Good work Anthony....
The second painting is by Ella Holland. Ella started as an oil painter and has moved on to watercolor and mixed media. The small collage using hand altered surface papers by Ella is definitely eye candy. Contact for class information.

take a look

A small peek at what I have been doing...Art Unraveled has come and gone and now it's time to submit for next year. Ten days before convention I fell ( not so gracefully) and injured both knees. Sooo....I have been sitting a lot making art jewelry and painting small watercolors in preparation for some workshops. I will be posting some of the pieces on both of my blogs.
Also, don't forget to register at The Artist's Nook website for the third on-going Exploring Mixed Media workshop to be held in November at Fort Collins, Colorado.
