Margaret demonstrated her various techniques while also working on a painting of her own.
We started along the lines of Tracy Verdugo's class in making a grid on our canvas and filling it with personal symbols.
But then we branched out into Margaret's unique version of it and added color and more symbols and more color until our canvases had morphed into wonderful creations.
A few close ups of the interesting textures we came up with, scratching into paint, stencils, etc.
Here is our class art show at the end -- such great colors!
It was a wonderful weekend of laughter and painting and Starbuck's lemon cake and meeting new friends. My art friend Lisa Culjis also went (her painting is the dreamy flower one on the right hand side). I love classes like this and plan to find more now that I have time!
