Collage class (11/16/08) and catching up!

Gosh, where does the time go?
I almost could not believe it when I looked at this blog today, and saw it had been 2 weeks since my last post! Things may continue to be that way for a while . . . even though I'm still busy creating, it could take a while for me just to catch up and upload photos of what's been going on! These days I am putting in a number of hours each week at Stonewall Kitchen in Avon, CT for the Holidays, which shortens my time for everything else I like to do . . . . Although, I do really enjoy working there! Yummy, yummy food, great people, and all-around nice place to work.

So then, what are all the photos here in this post?? The photos you see here are from a collage on canvas techniques class I taught that was held in my home studio in Avon, CT on November 16, 2008. Click on any photo for more details. Usually I am much speedier in getting class photos uploaded to my blog; but not this time! Below you will see a wonderful photo or two of Joyce Adomaitis, my only student in class on that day. Having just one student made for a very relaxing class, and we certainly enjoyed ourselves! During class we went over various techniques to cover a blank canvas - using baking soda, rubbing alcohol, masking tape, salt, tissue paper, plastic wrap, and more - to create backgrounds with acrylic paints.

-- Joyce's collage to the left in progress, just lovely! Joyce wrote me an e-mail after class:

Thank you for making the class such a wonderful experience-it was a pleasure meeting you. I received so many compliments on my creations, and it was great to have a finished piece at the end of class. Please keep me on you email list when you open up additional classes.
Best wishes for a wonderful holiday with your family-hope to see you in the new year!
