My current artistic interests revolve around flatness and design with maybe a feeling of 3-D using experiments with water media. Looking for patterns using my photography and notes and then transferring to a painting. And maybe including some whimsy and fun.

The second piece and my least favorite done in the Jennie McGuire workshop. I have to say it looks very different than it did at the start. White was used and I tried to get rid of too much detail. On a half sheet of cold press Arches.
My first class project with Jennie McGuire. Using angular strokes and a thicker paint. Not really painted like the instructor? Well I did use white and I changed areas like an oil or acrylic piece. Watercolor on a half sheet of cold press Arches.
The artist was wonderful but if you are wanting to see a completed work, she isn't going to complete a piece. But I thought that was a good thing. She has no issues with using white and the painting process can and does take a while. It was if I was painting in acrylic but it did not have that 'plastic' feeling.
