Permission to Play

In my soul, I am still that small child who did not care about anything else but the beautiful colors of a rainbow.  ~Papiha Ghosh

Permission to Play. I just feel the freedom in those words! I hope you'll give yourself permission to play in paint a lot this year. I get asked the question a lot "how do you make painting look so easy? and how did you find your style?" Basically my answer is to play in paint every day and embrace "accidents". That is it. Easier said than done, maybe....but I believe if you love the process of painting and really give yourself permission to play, magic happens. You get lost in the process and time seems to slip away.

Class begins February 1st, 2015. Sign up anytime.

I have even surprised my Primitive Portraits 3 students with a how to paint a large eyed girl....Mindy style. I of course did not want to copy Mrs. Keane's magical work but who cannot be inspired by such mystery deep set in those eyes. They truly hold something formidable and unexplainable. That is THE reason I love art so much. It has such a power to move, to awaken, yet bring mystery and intrigue.
