IN CELEBRATION OF NATURE
"Johnson Ranch" 10" x 20"
Spent last week in Wimberley, Texas in
the heart of the Texas Hill Country
taking a workshop from Skip Whitcomb.
Painting in Texas is a bit of a challenge
right now because everything is green.
There are patches of wildflowers here and
there, but not in abundance like it was
a month ago.
The workshop was great. Jill Carver came
over from Austin and visited. Skip knocked
out some killer demos. I debated about
posting any of my work, but thought "what
the heck". Produced three wipe offs for every
completed painting. I tend to push myself
into different directions in a workshop just
to see what works...and what doesn't.
All-in-all I went to the workshop wanting to
gain specific knowledge about paint manipulation.
I think I got it so now I need to apply it to my
work to see if I can achieve the results I'm
shooting for. Time will tell.
