WORKSHOP SUCCESS! and Bamboo Beginning...

Well, two VERY jam packed and crazy fun days later and our workshop at the Aar River Gallery is concluded!  It was SO full of fun and work and new information I came away without one pic of student work!  Aaarrrggghhh!  I was promised, however that my students would send me their work...YEA!

We all had great fun...and it was reported to me that they loved it and LEARNED and were INSPIRED...two VERY important things to me when I teach workshops!

I almost wanted to say sorry I worked them so hard, but these pics of some of my students have smiles and happy countenances, so perhaps I wasn't the slave driver I feared I was!

In just two short days we learned a lot about the different products for collage; working mixed media; that are out there and how they work best.  We made forms for paper casts, paper casts, paper, created wax collage paintings and what we laughingly called "regular" collage paintings as well.  We made our own stamps and used them in our work...It was great!  Thanks girls for putting up with me!

So, now it is back to work on my own things.  I promised the class that I would post my demo's as I finished them...so this is a beginning.  I'm working on a bamboo piece for my little grandchild to be's nursery...Still deciding how I want to approach the actual subject matter...I've started...but may change my mind as to what medium I will use.  This painting is 4" x 25" and I've used my 1 3/4" poplar cradle for it.  This is merely a section as I wade through this different subject matter for me!

Happy Creating!!

Awesome job on that bamboo, Saundra. It looks so real! And boy! Those pics make me doubly wish I could have been at that workshop. It looks like so much fun, truly. And I love your cradled panels too.
