How I got out of the color rut

Iris I

As I started this post about my upcoming class “Revealing the Color Purple” I wanted to share something that would spark an interest in you. It was then that this watercolor “Iris I” came to mind and all I could remember was how much I truly enjoyed creating this painting! It was one of my best moments I have had painting, it felt like having a home-made meal that takes you back to childhood and reminds you of good times. Sometimes we get so caught up in processes, materials and overflow of information that we overlook the simple stuff and how to really use what we have on hand. We believe that if we buy another tube of color the paint fairy will dust it with magic and it will magically create a masterpiece…not!

I want to share that experience and how I learned to get out of the color rut on Saturday, January 21 (oh yeah, it’s my Bday and I like chocolate!) at the Rochester Art Club Studio at the Hungerford Building. Click on the link to download the Registration form along with the supply list!
