"Spilling Out in France"

“Spilling Out in France”
12 x 12in oil on museum quality panel
I love the way color, flowers, sunshine and the like can just “spill” out. Like a glass filled to overflowing–it has to go somewhere. 
And as spills go, if it’s sunshine, flowers, color and the like–France is a great place for it to happen:))!
As promised, the closing chapter in the Atlanta 2012 workshop saga:)) 
Gary and Aileen Byrd graciously opened their home and hearts to our artist group for our evening get togethers (but really, what else could they do.  Leslie is there sister–and you know how hard it can be to tell family no–especially when they’re as cute as Leslie;)  
Our days were spent in spacious surroundings that is home to many workshops in Atlanta! 

 Leslie Saeta getting underway with a lesson on color mixing and values:))  She wields a mean palette knife!!

 Dottie and Dottie….per my last blog post reference to dots being connected. 
In case you’re wondering, they are as mischievous as they look. 
 Must be something to do with the name…
Just a “snapshot”of some of the paintings from the artists on the second day!
And our beautiful group of artists (you too Garry!) in no particular order:))
Brenda, Virginia, Kathleen, Dottie, Suzette, Karen, Mary, Joyce, Wende, Dinah, Connie, Pat, Sharon, Denise, Durinda, Leslie, Jacklyn, Donna, Paula, Dottie, Carolyn, Judy, Linda, Marie, Connie, Robin, Tommye, Sharon, Christine, Theresa, Nancy, Elise, Garry, Raji, and Becky.
Art workshops bring out the best people and the best in people. Artists are a curious lot, ever growing, ever seeking to see things in a new way.  They are open, generous to a fault, and lovers of life.
I consider it an extraordinary honor to be able to share what I have learned thus far with folks like these:))
Thank you to all the artists that made Atlanta 2012 GREAT!

    Beautiful painting with a tough perspective. Love that you can really see your signature stunning brushwork in the sky! Sweet! Having been to a Leslie/Dreama team workshop I know how special they are and how generous you both are with everything. Inspiring is too small a word. Happy to know you and think the world of you for all you do!ReplyCancel
