A "Golden" evening

Just attended a fun and very informative evening at our local art association building for a lecture on all things "Golden". Golden acrylic products that is.
It's simply amazing how many products they actually have and how many ways there are in which to use them all.
If you think you know all about acrylic paint....I doubt it.  Our Golden rep was Adria Arch, a delightful and extremely well informed rep.  She was able to demonstrate and discuss such a vast collection of products in a 2hr gathering....that literally flew by.
While having worked with a number of acrylic products for quite a long time...I was able to still learn many new and interesting tidbits throughout this lecture.
And hey...what could be more fun than receiving little goodie bags of samples!!
Nice touch Golden!!

The far

The long hard winter may finally be breaking!! Spring seems to be trying really hard to make it's way back.
I've been trying to summon up spring in my art room as well. Spring birds landed upon some recent canvases with little music notes visible in their bodies!!
With the season starting to is time to be gearing up for new workshops. I am happy to report I've had more interest happening this year and folks requesting more info.  I hope that means we'll have more workshops to look forward to.

There are a couple of other workshops being planned right now to schedule into the summer....but I wanted to give you a chance to book ahead for these now!!
As is limited.
Love teaching these classes and hope to add many more to the list as time goes on.  It would be fun to add some longer workshops into the mix. Certainly, if I line some up that I need to travel for, they will be multi day workshops.

OK....still trying

to think "spring" that is!!
What a horribly cold nasty winter we've been having. I am sooo beyond ready for this to break!
Been keeping myself busy in the art room surrounding myself with "warm" images. Figure if I stay there and look at the images all day I'll stay warm and forget the frozen tundra outside.
Must say, there are some days that this works better than others.
Working on Soft Serve ice-cream can be a real challenge at this time of year....but I have a pretty active imagination....and lots of
This weekend is daylight saving time....time for the clocks to spring ahead.
Lets hope the weather does the same thing!
