GCWS PROGRAM PAINTING AND PLANNING


Well, I intended to take photos of this, step-by-step.  But I got busy painting and before you know it, I was done!  So this is the canna lily finished a la Birgit O'Connor but with my own colors (especially the background).

I'll share this with the GCWS members who show up for the January program, so they can see how to make the painting their own.

Now, I need to get busy and get the program down pat using the projector and figuring out where to pause the DVD and talk a bit and have them paint.  (Why did I volunteer to do this?  I don't feel comfortable speaking in front of a group, even if it's a group I know.)

It'll be great because you know your subject. Beautiful painting.

I still can't get over how gorgeous those petals are. Knock 'em dead, Rhonda!

I suspect the speaking in front of people will be like the canna lily painting: once you get going, you'll be finished before you know it!
Great colors in the painting!

Thanks for all the support, Hallie, Sherry, Laura, Debbie, Teresa, and Deb. It's not like I don't know all these people but you know, it's different getting up each meeting and introducing the speaker/guest artist - this time it will be me! ha ha Oh, well, I just hope they learn a little something new, perhaps want to try more wet-in-wet flowers...or maybe birds? ha ha
