It was a relaxed and engaging session, I have experience in drawing but haven't done it regularly in years so the casual atmosphere was appreciated to make the activity more approachable. Instructor was friendly and very informative on techniques for building confidence in drawing and offered appropriate feedback and comments throughout the class. It was a very personable class that I enjoyed at lot!

Title or Location: Will You Play With Me?
I was drawn to paint this little girl because of her expression. There is a shyness to her look but at the same time an intensity in her gaze that beckons me to come and join her in her world of imagination. I used an analogous palette of reds, oranges and purples. This is from a photo by Zoe Graham from Unsplash.

Title or Location: Vortex of Wisdom
?Vortex of Wisdom" is an enigmatic tapestry of the cosmos, where a synthesis of art and mystical geometry invites the viewer into a realm beyond the mundane. This is no ordinary creation it is an arcane portal rendered through the meticulous strokes of airbrush on canvas, adorned with glimmering silver leaf and the sparkling allure of embedded crystals.The centerpiece, hair as ethereal as moonlight, glistens with the celestial touch of silver leaf, each strand a testament to otherworldly el

This piece, along with a few others was created for use as "merch" to sell at music events. I'm also a singer songwriter so I'm always looking for ways to bring my art and music together. The original idea for this painting was completed on the computer but the idea of a big display banner popped into my mind and I decided to do a large canvas. The canvas is loose, about 36 x 42 inches. Acrylic on 12oz canvas and is currently hanging in my living room here in Gresham, Oregon USA. Thanks for your

Title or Location: Sunset at Boukari Harbour, Corfu
I started painting 6 years ago after attending a paint night at a local bar (just for fun) in Vancouver, Canada, where I had been living. I was addicted! Youtube videos have been a great way to learn and grow. The journey has been frustrating at times but it has also become my stress relieving activity.I visited Corfu at the beginning of June and loved the sunsets at this location in the South East of the Island. When I look at skies, clouds , water etc I am always imagining how to paint them
