Here is today's photo:
I'm not sure this a great picture, but it draws me in everytime I look at it. It is a reflection of the rock retaining wall on the road bridge over the creek in my yard.
I also sketched my tree frog from yesterday's post as EDM #136 Something That's Alive. I tried to use a bit of crosshatching for the shadow, but am not altogether happy with it. I really need to refine my drawing skills as they pertain to shadows.
And perhaps most exciting of all, yesterday on Kristameister's blog she told about her experience in a 3-day workshop with Joe Fettingis and showed an egret she painted in that class and she described the class as life-changing. I sent her an email to ask her about it and she responded, "RUN, do not walk and see if you can get into one of his classes."
I did a quick search online and found that he is teaching a 3-day workshop in St. Joseph the weekend of September 10-12. Knowing that it would already be full, I emailed him to ask if there was room and he responded with a phone number to call and told me that there was one seat left. I called and then sent in my registration. I am waiting to see if I made it. The best thing about the St. Joe location is that my sister lives just 15 minutes away and I will combine a trip to visit her with this workshop. I can't wait!!! And you know I will share my experience with you.
Gotta go; there is a 2 year old bugging me to play and do art.
