Another Funky Lady!
"Something Fishy about Karen!"
I'm preparing for another charcoal pour workshop and funky lady workshop that I will be teaching in Two Harbors, MN in 2 days. I've done 3 of these "Something Fishy" paintings. I really enjoy the play on words and creating the unexpected. This particular workshop is my favorite workshop to teach. We pour the charcoal on the first day, in prep for the bird painting, but since it has to dry, etc., we work on our funky ladies paintings the rest of that first day. There's always lots of laughter and everyone succeeds! In fact, the ones who aren't very good drawers actually produce the best ones, in my opinion. I will be giving a demonstration on Drawing Funky Ladies, for the Buffalo, MN art group on November 17th at 7:00 p.m. It is held at the airport there. Join me if you're in the area.
