Colors of Fall
watercolor and acrylic
First, I just have to thank all of my blogger friends who helped me on my last post. You were so helpful and supportive with my first portrait of a child. Your support pulled me through and gave me courage to show the parents of the little boy. Luckily, they loved it and we are bartering services! If you receive my blog via email, please go online to my actual blog so you can check out my wonderful artist blogger friends' blogs. If you go to comments, you will see their names and comments, by clicking their name, it will take you to their blog. I promise you will enjoy seeing their art and learning about their journey them.

Above are photos from Ted Nuttall's workshop at the Artisan's Studio Gallery. I will still have to report more on Ted Nuttall's workshop later. As a person and a teacher, he is just wonderful. He takes time with each student and has great patience. If you get a chance to take his workshop, I highly encourage you to do so.
The second photo moves me every time I see it. Jane Jones was my first watercolor instructor, when she took a break from teaching, Jane referred me to Naomi Brotherton, whom I studied with for years. Naomi is a dynamo at age 95, still teaching classes, painting and winning competitions! I have known Pat Kochran since I have taken classes with Naomi and this fall I have been taking classes with Pat. I believe both Pat and Jane have taken from Naomi as well. Each of these fabulous women are such active powerhouses in the art world with their award winning art displayed all around the country. I am so lucky to know them and I truly cherish what I have learned from them as well as our friendships.
Have a fabulous Thanksgiving and as always, thanks for your comments, emails and friendship!
