I have been teaching basic art techniques for about 8 years now. I feel it helps me as much as my students. One student’s dilemma can be a big help to everyone. Presently I am teaching a class in Abstract Painting. Part of teaching the class is bringing forth images and information on past and present abstract artists. I was never a big fan of art history as a student and now I regret this. It impresses me how interested my students are. At the same time I am more interested these days and find the information very helpful. Perhaps it is my passion that is improving the experience for teacher and student.
This weekend I finally got to work on some new paintings. One was almost too easy and I am quite pleased with it. Naturally the second painting has not been easy at all. It verges on being considered wallpaper. That makes me shudder – a lot.
I have been quite inspired by the sky recently – the big fall display of clouds and long sunsets/sunrises.
& now for the paintings …. Technically they are just started.
