Creativity Galore.....

Remember.... it's the process of painting ..not the product that counts.
Life is really humming over here.  For three weeks (this is the beginning of the fourth week) I've been taking a class called BIG Fearless painting.  It's spectacular. The point of it is the process of painting and not the product (that's a good thing). We're learning lots about ourselves through this experience of painting and thinking BIG.  I'm loving it.  I'm taking it through DirtyFootprints-studio.com and it's just what I needed to give the the courage to try something larger than my little pen and ink drawings.

Yesterday, I started two other online courses.  Yes, I know I'm crazy. I keep adding and adding to my schedule and don't delete anything.  Anyway, I'm going to find the time... make the time.  One of the two is also through DirtyFootprints-studio.com and it's called 21 Secrets.  There are 21 different instructors giving us secrets on techniques to apply in our art journals.  Love learning all this inside stuff.

The other is a workshop on how to draw a Labrador Retriever. This is through Capturing the Spirit at http://www.artlabs.ning.com.  This a wonderful group of people who draw or love pets.  Belonging to the site is free and you can join at any time. If you want to take the monthly workshop, it's only $20.00 per month.  Very economical. This month we are drawing a lab... Fergus to be exact. Now, you all know I love cats, but I'll be able to apply these skills to drawing Bugsy and Knuckles too.

Anyway, that's what's up over here.  The month of April is off to a roaring start.
