Well Loved

The Egg paintings and the above painting of paint brushes are projects that I get my students to do in my painting classes. I have been deeply focused on teaching these past couple of weeks. Within the next couple of days I will be posting my next open house and registration dates. There will be some new classes and workshops added to the list of courses that I am already teaching.
Also, I posted better photos of the egg paintings. The previous ones were taken late at night and I really wanted to post them, but the quality was terrible. I apologize.
The Well Loved brushes were developed after checking out other artists blogs in the hopes of coming up with some inspiration for my Monday night class. Carol Marine, after a workshop she taught, painted her paint brushes. They are absolutely beautiful. Since my class is all about painting the still life in the quest to finding simple beauty in everyday life, I found that it is a perfect subject. It just goes to show, that if you think there is nothing worthy enough or inspiring enough to paint, you never have to look very far to find something. Usually beauty is sitting right in front of you. Do you notice it? is the question.
