Then, we met in various homes for a couple of years which to be honest, was a bit of a pain to constantly have to organize. Next, a lovely workshop space was gifted to us by a local gardening store.
Now, we meet at the local artist cooperative known as The Cove. This place is perfect. We pay a nominal fee each month. My advice would be to find a place where it is the same place every month, as well as the same day and time. We always meet on Second Mondays from to pm. What happens at our gatherings? It is a potluck, so everyone brings a dish. We also provide wine, tea and water. Upon arriving, folks mingle and partake in the potluck. Then, we sit in a circle and my husband moderates. Everyone introduce themselves, saying what they do and what is new and good in their life plus any announcements to share.
He demonstrates by going first. He recommends that there be no cross talk.

Otherwise, we might be there 'til two in the morning! If you have a question for someone, you can always go up to them after this part. A new component of our gatherings is our speaker series. This was Leslee Ortega's brilliant idea.

It is heart warming and inspiring to have a place where you feel supported. There have also been countless collaborations and friendships formed. On more component is our annual Holiday Art Bazaar. In a way, this is our gift to the community. My husband and I, along with the amazing Andrea Holmes, organize this event. Each vendor has a six foot table for their handmade creations. It is held on the first Saturday of December. It is a fun and festive day! Paintings in this wonderful Art Exhibition will be on display and available for purchase through April 28 at the charming courthouse in Historic Downtown McKinney.
The Small Works Show runs through January 13, My new series began with keeping a sketchbook of my backyard. I realized my backyard is bigger than what is behind my house. It extends to what I love about my neighborhood — from the McKinney Farmers Market to goats to front porches to crepe myrtles. The Cove N. Tennessee St.
Last month I took one of the best online class ever from Melinda Cootsana. She is an excellent teacher who gives detailed feedback. Nope, I didn't take Part 1 which she said wasn't required. I wasn't that familiar with the phenomenon of color relativity. It extraordinary how the same color can look completely different given the colors that surround it. Here is my attempt at giving this a try. Cool light with warm shadows and its counterpart, warm light with cool shadows was a brand new exercise for me.
Painting a self portrait with a Zorn color palette was a quite challenging! That is precisely why this assignment was so good for me to try. This is my very first self portrait!
Using mostly neutrals with thimbleful of a primary color opened my eyes to how the brighter colors pop when contrasted against muted colors. I knew this idea theoretically, but this exercise brought it home for me.

I will take you to interesting parts of the historical city where we will do Urban Sketching, with ink and watercolor. I will guide you in a different way of observing the world around you, to explore your creativity even if you have never drawn or paint before.
You don't need any previous experience. You don't need to show your sketches to anybody if you don't want to do it. It's an experience for you to enjoy, relax and release your creativity. O que levar. Show all photos. We'll start at my art studio, in the center of the city, where I'll give instructions, materials, drinks and answer questions. If you prefer we can also meet at the fountain in Plaza Soledad send me a message if you want this option.
