and starting the morning with a delicious breakfast
listening to some wonderful chit chat (Kecia Deveney & Seth Aptar)
the presentation of an amazing quilt
and then....I am off to class.My last class with the AMAZING Andrea Matus deMeng. Did I remember to say she is AMAZING !!!
we all picked a face to work with on our 12X24 panels.
I picked this one
the task seemed daunting...Andrea explains that we should start by tearing...after all..you can always cut later if you want to.
then we layer a coat of matte medium on our wood panel. After it dries we lay out componants we 'think' we might like to use. We change our mind 100 times.
Once we have some sort of idea of our color scheme and theme we take everything off the board and start painting. Andrea likes us to try using our hands ..I pick black & white acrylic paint which eventually looks a lot like slate (when I get completely finished !)
our work tables are a mess !!
I start gluing stuff down....I'm scared !!
in the end some things wont even be visable any more.
Andrea shows us how to drip the paint
my final result thrilled me and it's STILL not actually finished. !!
and here are some of the other amazing pieces from the students in Andreas class
same face as mine...completely different interpretation!
did I mention Andrea is AMAZING !!
