I had a great class of painters last weekend ..some had not painted much before. Painting and creating in general is a meditative stress reducer. As adults we still want a result..and end product ..something to show for our time but some practices are done just for the loosing of ones conscious self and spending time that has no specific end point. Abstract art can be that practice. I'll be looking for ways to help painters loosen up and not rely on realism as much. Finding satisfaction in color, line ,composition , balance, texture..can be enough.
On another note I've created a 2020 red paint studio calendar for gift giving for the holidays ..here's a link to order or email me directly.
