Art is…Life (Petaluma)

Standard

So far I’ve had an amazing time at this incredible event.  At the risk of going on and on…this is one retreat you should really try to attend if at all possible.  It is well run and filled with super talented and personable teachers and the students feel like family.  I just can’t get over how friendly everyone is.

So..on to the class I took with the amazing Tracy Verdugo

As you know..I love taking process pictures.  Here we go with the progress of my 30×30 canvas

Day 1…blank canvas…divided into a 7×7 grid…apply personal symbols (no black was used…just mixed some secondary colors to make dark)

I still need to get a better photo of the final piece (better lighting)  It was amazing seeing what everyone else ended up with.  Here is Tracy’s final piece.
