Back from Painting Camp

I'm back from my painting blitz
with five completed paintings,
some soulful charcoal drawings,
starts on five textured paintings that are probably
best qualified as a "learning experience"
rather than a new direction, and
five new pristine canvases
for catching paint when I get inspired.

This is Peggy Zehring.

She's hamming it up next to one of
Kathy Kimball's gorgeous paintings.

I'll show you more of everyone's work
over the next few days, but you can see
more of Kathy's art by clicking on her name.

Peggy facilitates the painting workshop
and helps you figure out whether a painting is finished
or whether it needs a little more tweaking.

She also leads tai chi sessions
every morning for those who want to partake.

The class was small --
seven people altogether,
five of whom were on their second week.

People did amazing work.
Peggy has a knack for creating a safe place
to experiment with abstractions
that speak right from your soul.
