Which medium do you prefer? eg. oils, acrylics, etc.
Lately, I have been working in watercolor, but have worked quite a bit in oils and acrylics.
Are you a full time artist?
Who are your favourite 2 artists?
Turner, Monet, and I love the way Richard Robinson paints.
Do you have any goals for your painting?
I really want to loosen up. Also, I need to work on brushstrokes and composition. Color theory is another area that I could use some help with. I have a great deal to learn, and that is my goal for this workshop.
This sounds terrific!! I am very glad that I took that drive to meet you because I feel that I know you so well from TCA. Do find someone to go out painting with at home because it is so good for the body and soul. I am sure that you are under a lot of stress every day as a full time care giver to your husband. I have family in Orange County as well, so a workshop in Laguna or in Santa Cruz would be over the top. Have Karen join the TCA if she hasn't already-- I will look for her there. My wife really likes Richard as well; he is really a nice person! Paint On!!!!
Hi again, Nancy. I understand about life getting in the way! I'm trying to break loose of the long dry spell right now. I haven't painted plein air, always live studio mostly. The florals are from long ago. I lost my youngest son almost 4 months ago and my trip to CA is to honor his request that I get back to painting, get healthy, be happy, and learn to laugh again. Tough assignment but giving it my best. Sure hope we get to see you in Paso. (Your work is lovely and interesting!)
I hope Richard knows how to do that without losing everything. I haven't made a decision yet, but I'm leaning toward coming down to Paso over the holiday weekend and doing the workshop; I need to decide pretty quickly or the course will be full. Stu
Hi Nancy. I can reset your profile photo for you, but I can't change your email address. I think your best bet is to keep the old email address and forward everything to the new one. Maybe Richard can do it, but I suspect you will need to sign up as a different user with your new email address. I think you should message Richard and see what he advises. Stu
Nancy, I need to decide what I'm doing in May. I should probably come down and just go to the workshop. I think Laura Xu is going to go to the course in SF. I don't know about Ann Turner and Michael Severin, but I will check with them. Those three are the only ones I have painted with. I think that I can talk my wife into coming to Paso with me, because the 26th is my birthday. I'll decide in the next couple of days, because I'm sure it will fill up fast.
