Because Art Should be Play and Not Work

Paint Mojo

I was lucky enough to win a place in Tracy Verdugos online Paint Mojo class this fall. I've learned some new techniques and I've really enjoyed it. Here are the various stages of the big painting I made in her class.







This is her prize flower--if you look closely you can see the glow around it. I think she must be walking to town and taking her flower to show it off--

This style of painting-discovering the hidden people or things within the paint is one of my favorite kinds of painting. And Tracy has her own little twists on how to do it. It was a very good online class. I have a few other things to post from her class at a later date-but this was the big ta dah project.

Gorgeous work! Since I discovered this style of painting I hardly paint any other way anymore. It's just too much fun letting the paint and the canvas decide what I will paint :-)
