Love ya, get out!

"Studying Tomatoes"

Sometimes you have to go back in order to go forward.  Today was my last day of teaching art classes until September.  I'm lucky enough to have a great group of funny, sweet & talented students.  I didn't think I would be sad to see them go but I was (sorta).  Some I will see over the summer with workshops but will miss the weekly laughter & "ah ha" moments.  As the last group departed today, I thought I love ya but GET OUT!  It's time for your teacher & you to spend some "alone" time at the easel.  See what developes, experiment, see what trouble you can get into & hopefully work yourself out of it.  I know you can do it.  The painting posted today was one that I did as a class demo last fall.  I'm going to take a two week break and revisit some familiar subjects that I painted over the last 9 months in a different manner.   So to all my wonderful students, don't call me until July 12th!  Now go paint!!!!!
