I love painting but find it hard to do by myself unless I have a specific product in mind. I really need to spend more time doing it, though, because it's the only time I really get into that zone where you stop thinking and just immerse yourself in something you're passionate about. These on-line classes are perfect for me, because I get to work at home at whatever time I feel like, for however long I feel like, and I can get feedback and see other people's work through the Flickr group Carla sets up for each class.
My other inspiring blogger for visual arts is Geninne. I check her blog every day and love the glimpses into her studio and her process. Today my friend Annemarie gave me this gorgeous little book - I've been coveting these on Geninne's blog but hadn't actually seen one yet.
Sunshine, gardening, birds, and time spent with friends - it has been a good Friday.
