I am getting ready to take off on my trip to southern California but wanted to share with you the art class that I had for some very special students. Britany, Madison and Taylor wanted an art lesson so we set up on the back porch and went to work. Children are a true inspiration. They are so free and relish the bright colors and the whole idea of making brushstrokes on the canvas. We started with a drawing using an oil pastel pencil and then the first thin layer of paint went down to show the Darks and the Lights of the painting. The final brushwork was a bit thicker and voila each student had a nice painting. It was definitely, "A Painting Day".
