A small painting I finished today. It's a little wooden whistle. Sweetie has a bunch of these in various colors, so I may paint a few for fun. This one will probably go on the Small Works blog in the next week or so.
Other than this, I've been sorting out my small paintings that will go on the Small Works blog; and working on the lesson for my beginner students who are coming for their 2nd meeting Tuesday. They want to learn landscapes - something I don't do! So...I have to do some studying of my own and paint a few so they will be able to learn what they want. Of course, I'm going to make them learn to do washes and learn about granulating colors and which colors are warm and cool, too. I won't make them draw for a while - don't want to frighten them away!
I also watched Merle Rosen's DVD on acrylic mediums. Makes me want to try these things now - but I have to wait a while. I'm definitely getting more geared up for the Myrna Wacknov workshop where we'll do stamping (creating our own stamps), collage work, and other experimental things with acrylics, inks and watercolors. Watching Merle's DVD made me think of some other things to put in my travel bag to take to Myrna's workshop - including an apron and a few pair of latex gloves (because I hate having my hands covered in acrylic paint).
What delicious things are you having for Easter dinner tomorrow?
