WORKSHOP FUN! "PURPLE OAK" © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

6"x12" mixed media on 1/8" MDF panel (ready for framing)
$140
If you want me to cradle this piece please contact me at art4life44@hotmail.com.  It will be $20 more.



For two days I was in workshop heaven!  

Carol Nelson (my wonderful artist friend) presented a workshop on abstract trees!  HOW COULD I RESIST!!  So, I went and played with different materials and all sorts of fun artists.  "Purple Oak" was the first piece I came up with.  I used corrugated cardboard for the oak trunk and burlap for the foliage of the tree.  THAT WAS FUN!.  I used old cut up watercolor painting paper for the other tree trunks.  If you look carefully you can  still see my signature paper streaming across (I couldn't resist putting my own "stamp" on it!)



Yes, we made stamps too...mine is below and I did stamp in the background before I got busy with other stuff!!

Carol and I have been artist friends for years.  I've taken a different workshop from her twice before.  Her energy level and knowledge are awesome...Her paintings are incredible, and her willingness to share information and materials is phenomenal!  If you ever have a chance to take a workshop or class from Carol you will NOT be disappointed!


Tomorrow I will share in detail my "Lollipop Forest" (aptly named by Carol by the way)

HAPPY CREATING!

Love the oak tree (my favorite tree) and that lollipop forest looks amazing too. I used to follow Carol's blog and her work is always beautiful too.
