Art Classes and Inspiration

I have been so blessed in being able to take classes taught by Carla Sonheim and last year in conjunction with Lynn Whipple.

This year I have learned even more techniques.

Gorilla sketches, ink and charcoal.

Some of the lessons have been flashbacks to college while others are very imaginative and really get the creative gusto going.

You never know how another person’s mind is working. It is fun to see what Carla Sonheim is cooking up for her students every other week.

A little inspiration from other artists is always welcome. Stirring the pot that is my brain usually results in surprises.

The surprises have become something I look forward to daily. What will come from my hand, heart and brain today with the nudge of an art class for inspiration.
