I said I was finished, but I decided to do some more highlighting on my horse painting. In the process I decided that the rock between the horses was distracting so I removed it completely. Then I didn't like the light blue grass on the bottom right. So...I turned it into more rock and just added flowers creeping in and around the rock. I like it MUCH better now! And I am declaring it officially finished. FINALLY! The picture is below.
I received a phone call this morning from the St. Johns County Community Education. They asked if I still wanted to teach Acrylics and said they had a slot for the summer. SO...as of June 13, 2017 I will be teaching a class called Beginner / Intermediate Acrylics. It is a 6 week course and we hope to draw at least 10 - 20 students! I am very excited to make this announcement. It will be nice to work with a large class. I usually only work one-on-one or small groups because I don't have much room. I think this will be so much fun AND I have already recruited my first student! I posted a notice on Instagram and Facebook and within an hour she signed up. Social media CAN be a great thing if used correctly! I have also gotten commissions through them.
I am now working on the second painting for the Nature and Wildlife show and moving right along. The frames are buffed and ready to go and waiting for the canvas. I have to get the really good photos yet but that is coming soon! So, one more time, here is the FINAL showing of my horses.
