I have added several new abstracts in the last week, hope you check them out. I think for a change I am going to start a contemporary landscape maybe a smaller 18 X 24. Need to add some variety and keep working on my painting skills.
I have sold and still have several paintings for sale at a local boutique and they asked me if I would be an instructor at their Sippin and Paintin. Whether I am working with a seasoned artist or someone who is just there to spend time with friends to have some fun, I really enjoy it. I am working on class 3 or 4. Trying to have 1 or 2 a month. I provide all the supplies, paint a picture to show them how to and give them any advise they need to finish their masterpiece. You can check out a pics of a couple of the classes on facebook/KarenJohnson. I am amazed at some of the paintings that come out of the class. I usually work in acrylics for these so they can take them home easily. Oils are just so hard to deal with as it takes days or weeks to dry but I do enjoy working with oils.
If anyone within a 60 mile radius of Grand River, IA has a location(space with tables & chairs) and would like to set up a class please contact me. I have taught from no experience to more advanced artist wanting to pick up different types or styles to add to their own. I find all classes to be a lot of fun and an enjoyment.
I love to paint and talk about art by Karen Johnson
