Spring is here. At least my tulips are up. They are timid though and have not shown their colors yet. I don't blame them for it is still chilly today. I don't know if I have any news at all. But I did have sketching in mind at the beginning of the year with an absolute ridiculous resolution to sketch every day. This is a warning about resolutions. Resolutions promote failure. However, to help my sketching block, I decided to take a sketching class. It is very interesting. This class is with the artist instructor, Greg Lipelt, who recommends that drawing lessons will be a great benefit in the development of one;s art journey. I find the class inspiring and the whole process helps me see new possibilities. I'm being vague because I am only on class number 3 but I am encouraged. Now, I did sketch from a photo myself at the age of ten. It was a little photo but as I was drawing, I thought to myself that I would love to paint her. And I did and you can see my new painting that I have already framed and hanging in my bedroom. Also please come to my demo at the Art on the Line show next weekend Friday at 1 PM at the Fine Arts Building in the Minnesota State Fair Grounds. This is a great show with over 100 artists displaying original watercolor art. I will have a small wall there too. The same weekend is Art A Whirl in the NE district of Minneapolis. Come visit Studio 321 where we can talk and enjoy.
