After literally YEARS of not designing an original decorative painting project, I accomplished one this summer, and taught it for my local SDP painting chapter, Capitolers, yesterday. I haven't taught a painting class since January, and to say I was a wee bit nervous, well, that would be an understatement!
Here's my project:
We met at the East Greenbush library for a fun painting day, and wow, funny how it all came rushing back to me! So wonderful to see faces of my friends and students there to paint with me. Helen M. came, and she was in the very first painting class I taught 18 years ago! Tina G. arranged the painting day, and she was a crickets teacher, and my teaching assistant for a couple of convention classes a few years ago....well, like almost 10 years ago! EEK!
Here is one of the two pieces Tina painted:
She always finds the best pieces to paint on!
Here is Kathy H. Painting on her beaded plate:
Her piece came out great!
One of the gals suggested I submit this project to a magazine for publication. Funny, before Juliana came along, I submitted to magazines regularly, worked for two of them, wrote pattern books and sold them at trade shows....why does submitting this one little project make me all quivery and nervous?
Just weird I guess.
I'll keep you posted :)
