I am taking Misty Mawn's online class Open Studio . Here is the link http://mistymawn.typepad.com/open_studio_space/. It is one of the best classes I have ever taken and we just finished week one. The amount of information and wonderful videos is just beyond what I ever expected. I have always been a very cautious painter. Trying to paint so delicate. I decided I was going to be brave and just jump in and be expressive! It is so cool when you can let go and be damned about the results! She keeps saying 'just stay with it', even when you are at a stage in the painting where it looks sloppy,VERY sloppy. Normally when something starts looking sloppy I STOP! Not with this class. I don't know if I will always approach a painting this way, but now I have an option. Way cool!!
