Friends on Canvas

Hi friends! 
How was your weekend?

I spent part of my weekend getting ready for an on-line art class I'm taking beginning Monday.
It's called the "She Art Workshop" by 

I had so much fun just getting out all of my supplies for the workshop...paints, watercolor crayons, gel medium, papers, stencils, and other ephemera, that I couldn't wait to play! 
 Here, I used an old photo of my mother (on the right) with one of her friends from school.
















I can't wait to see the techniques that Christy is going to show us.
Check out the link above for more information. 

Working with canvas and paints is something I've always wanted to do more of. 
I'm going to be out of town for a few days during the workshop though, so I'll probably be the student that's behind trying to play catch up! 

Hope all is well with you... 
Becca

I really, really love this, Becca!! Wow! I've always wanted to do mixed media – I will check out the link. Hope you're enjoying La Jolla! I'm heading down there in a few weeks myself. hugs, – g

p. s. You're still not missing anything with Seattle weather, ugh. Although it's supposed to get nice next week. I'm glad I had a week in the sunny Southeast as a break. :)
