New online painting workshop

hey y'all! one of the BIG things i was eluding to in yesterday's post was my brand new online class called "Driven To Abstraction". so many of us struggle along in search of our unique creative voice and have no idea how to go about discovering it. well, my journey into the world of abstract painting has taught me SO much about my style+creative voice and i realized that i should share this with y'all! that's how this course came into being. there's so much more to it so  just click on over the class page (where you can also sign up) to get all the details. through this sunday, january 15th, i'm having an early sign up special. the regular price of this workshop will be $95, but if you sign up by sunday, you'll only pay $80.

an exploration of your unique creative voice by way of the abstract painting process

Class begins February 27th

$95 $80 - Special Early Sign Up Price Expires 1/15/12 Click here to register

This is an ALL LEVEL course, so even if you've never painted before you can totally jump right in!

This is a 4 week class, with an additional 2 weeks for catch up and/or review.

In this process-focused style of working, you will experience a release of control through the use of distracting exercises which will allow you to tap into your creative flow and begin to discover your own unique creative voice. By the end of this workshop, you will have a painting that is uniquely YOU!

In this eCourse, I will take you through the different processes I go through as I build an abstract painting. You will get to follow along as I create a painting from start to finish and along the journey, I'll share with you various techniques I use during the creation process.

There will be several pre-recorded HD quality instructional videos posted each of the first four weeks to guide you on your painting journey. I will also be holding live weekly chats (which are totally optional to join) where you can connect with me and other students in the course to support and learn from each other. Along with the videos, there will be bits of inspiration i've found for you to explore each week to encourage you as you progress through the course. I also have a few surprises in store (one of which is a giveaway), but you'll have to wait until the class starts to find out more about those. ;)

Jesse Reno class

hey y'all! i haven't posted here in a while....i had a little fender-bender a few weeks ago and ended up with whiplash, so doing anything where i'm sitting or standing for any length of time has been no fun for me. thankfully, i'm finally starting to feel up to short stints on the computer (three visits a week to my chiropractor along with massage therapy are helping). still trying to take it easy and slowly get back to life in general. thanks to all of you who have been praying for me....keep those prayers coming! i do feel like i'm healing quicker than is normal for this sort of thing...and i think that God is taking this unfortunate accident and using it to help me learn to take better care of myself....something i've never been good at. ;) :D

so.....back to the class i took from jesse reno at the beginning of october (man, has it been that long already?)....it was AWESOME! i got alot from it....even though i kinda feel like my class paintings don't show that (but i'm gonna show them to ya anyway :D ). in some ways his process is kinda similar to mine, in the ways that it was different, it challenged me. and that was a good thing! :) it pushed me to approach my process a bit differently....imparting a bit more freedom and more awareness of how i can push what i'm already doing to the next level.

what draws me to his work is the rawness and freedom of it. his subject matter can be quite dark and primitive (so not  me), but the messyness and freeness of it i love!! so, here's a few pics from the class...

my first piece....painted using only my hands

love the feel of paint all over my hands!

jesse painting with his hands....he did that alot!
