Art Class Journey

Last week was my first art class titled CREATE FROM YOUR SOUL: OPEN STUDIO PAINTING, DRAWING & MULTI-MEDIA EXPRESSION 6:30 pm – 9 pm: 10 sessions, Tuesdays, April 15 – June 17, 2008.
The course is being taught by Rebecca Schweiger at The Art Studio: 145 W 96 Street, New York. http://www.rebeccarts.com/pages/aboutartstudio.html
Here are the beginning phases of my first picture, starting with a blank canvas, painting an initial coating of blue/green acrylic wash and then adding my first layer of collage material. I'm planning for the piece to consist of several different mediums, paints and colors, one on top of the other, then blended together.

More to come next week.

A great beginning. The background is very strong and there is a lot of energy and movement in the piece already. Looking forward to seeing how it evolves!!
