practicing, exercising and teaching

Miss Pippi can - reclaimed can art
Life has been full, full of art, full of learning and sharing and teaching. With my classes I teach this term we started with Vincent van Gogh inspired works. Which meant I had to refresh my steps as well and dive back into his style of painting.

  Sometimes we need to and with this practicing outside of comfort zones, we find little bits we can keep in our works. I love that about sharing and teaching. I have also been refreshing on my colour studies and found a new love for colour charts. They are great for getting you through inspiration lows I found.

So with all the classes each week and other commitments with the family and with work I have found only little time for my own art. Last Sunday we had a lovely French themed art market in the Historic Village where I have my studio. Great fun seeing many people enjoying the long weekend here. I had a stall with my Angels (they are "grounded" enough and wouldn't fly away in the wind)

So onto a new week again, with the kids classes we are heading to the skies....keep posted, I will share soon :)
