Summer Art

Gosh. This blog thing didn't get off the ground as expected but.......its a new day and I can try again! School is out for the summer and my mind is programmed to relax but I do have an Art After School group that will continue to meet over the summer. Its a small group. I like that. Frankly, I don't really have room for a big group.....I would like to maybe have one or two more but I'm not rushing to promote this. Good things start small.

Today we are going to look at the work of Georgia O"Keeffe. I love Georgia since she focused mostly on the smallest of things that could easily get over looked. I just returned from the grocery store and picked up some sunflowers and am about to go out and pick a few Stargazer lilies.....I have shells too that can be looked. Today is looking carefully, drawing down as much detail as you can and then begin the watercolor process. No rushing....just careful observation.
