PAINT PARTY FRIDAY....OH MY I AM LATE TO THE PARTY~!!!...




Today I'm joining all the other wonderful artists at Paint Party Friday.

I'm a little late with this post...but I wanted to share with you a simple painting I did in art class yesterday.

It is supposed to be a scene from Venice.. that has been texturized with a Mod Podge material.  First of all..it is the first time I have worked with acrylics and secondly...I haven't taken a class in years!!  IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!!

There was no stress..no pressure...the instructor was very positive and pleasant....and you learn many new techniques.



If any of you are thinking about taking a few simple classes...I highly recommend it.  You get a completely different perspective and of course what is better than spending an afternoon painting and being lost in the present moment.
to see all the other beautiful work being shared today.


Have a wonderful weekend.


Jo

  17. Oh JO, your artwork is lovely. I have come to love bright colors since blogland because I am an artist, but never was trained to use colors. I do pen and ink and feel so NOVICE at using colors, but what you ladies do with your hands and imaginations is stunning. I LOVE THE ORANGE COLOR! Thank you for visiting me today and YOU HAVE BEEN TO GREECE TWICE? That is my dream. I made it to France, finally, after years of dreaming. Maybe one day it will be Navagio Beach. BLESSINGS! Anita

  20. Hi Jo, thanks for popping over to my blog, l can't tell you how happy it made me that you ordered one of Kaffes' books, sharing inspiration makes blogging worthwhile doesn't it... he's amazing isn't he. Just looking around your blog and can't believe how much we have in common. l love your little painting of Venice too, the colours you've chosen are wonderful and hard to believe it's your first acrylic. Awesome!! Bron.
