Can I just tell you something? Jennifer Mercede's class this weekend was amazing. This was her first class she has ever taught and let me tell you ... it was amazing, and she was an amazing teacher!
This is the one painting I did finish ... and I love it! It's actually really big, like 30 x 30 inches. I loved all the doodling and and all the layers and then more layers ... then more doodling ... then we covered it all up and started again.
On Saturday, the morning started out with a few fun warm-up type games ... so fun!
then Jennifer talks with all a little about how the weekend was going flow ... and what we were to expect ... and she was constantly asking us if the pace was ok, or if she could help in anyway ... so sweet!
And in no time were all blind folded and had to doodle all over our big canvases! So fun.
I thought I had covered my entire canvas ... or that the pen was not working at all ...
Next we were to pick just one color and slather it all over the canvas ... not paying any attention to what was being covered up.
Then came the doodling and mark making ... and random words, what ever words were popping into our head were to be written down.
Next ... more doodling and random painting dripping and splattered.
And most of this painting so far has been done with these random house paints that I picked up a Home Depot for little to no money!
I was really having fun with the doodling ... these marks were all made with my left hand!
And just about the time I was kind of liking my painting ... we had to cover up 90% of it with random paint! I cringed at first, but then fell in love with it again.
Of course there would be a final challenge ... we had just one hour to finish our paintings ... needless to say ... I was sweating at this point ... but I did it ... I even had a chance to get some advice from Jennifer on a few things that were not feeling right. Finished with a few monents to spare and I loved my painting all over again!
This is one other piece I started to work on ... but ran out of time ... not sure where it's headed!
And this piece is still in the works ... hmmmm ... What to do next? Maybe more doodling ... always a good thing to do when you're stuck! I need to remember that!
