Voice....where are you?

I'm still searching for my artistic "voice". Great advice came from a friend who is making a real living with her art. She said, "In the beginning, take as many classes and workshops as you can" you can take bits and pieces of each one and put it together in a style all your own. My "voice" will come through all of these experiences. That is exactly what I am trying to do. I just completed a class today by local artist, Barb Starner, that was so unlike anything that I have done so far. The picture is a painting I did from this workshop. It was such a great opportunity to learn a fascinating technique!

On Monday, I will begin "Get Your Paint On": A five week painting class with Lisa Congdon and Mati McDonough. I am really excited about the next 5 weeks and all that I will learn besides connecting with other artists and sharing our work.

Preparing for more "voice" lessons.........


  1. Wow--I love your painting and am wondering how you did that! That is great advice from your friend--I am always struggling with finding my own style. Thanks for inspiring me to take some more classes! And enjoy Get your Paint On. I almost signed up for it. You'll have to let me know how you like it!

  2. wow - I love this painting! Sounds like things are going well. I am almost done teaching a class and now ready to take one!
