Practicing Play

I’m taking an online course with Jeanne Oliver called Wild Awaking Paint Big while I wait for my pigments to arrive from Montana. I highly recommend the course, especially if you’re in a stuck place like I am at the moment. I already knew how to do everything we’re learning in the course, 90% of which I learned back in art school and of course I wrote a book on Rust Dyeing many moons ago.

That said it’s refreshing to take classes from someone else, to gain new perspective, stimulate the old brain cells into working differently. Another bonus is I’m using up studio supplies I’m no longer in love with and want them gone.

So if you’re stuck, like I was, then I highly recommend Jeanne’s class, and drag out those supplies and play a little to loosen things up.
