This is a new painting I did using some of the new creative processes I am learning in my class with Nancy Hillis. It is a great class even though I am not able to work every day with all that is going on right now.

One of the biggest things I have learned is to activate the paper right away. Gets the juices flowing and does away with the fear of the blank paper. Even if it all gets covered up by paint in the end, there is a history to the paper that is still there and even pokes through in places.

I find  my love of earth tones taking over a bit. Color seems too overwhelming right now with all the other things we are learning. Color will be back. I am quite sure of that. In more ways than one.

I like this a lot. it's very earthy with a lot of texture. I think this is a good class for you. I'm interested in seeing more that you are doing in this class.
