owl painting workshop + an artful journey!

How To Paint An Owl Workshop, at the Glitter Workshop, February 5, 2011.
i can hardly say just how proud i am of this photo. 
this is my latest graduating class from my How To Paint An Owl Workshop! And i just love seeing these smiling faces and all of their incredible owls!  
it all starts with these painted backgrounds on wood that i prepare beforehand. 
(i was really very nervous.) 
then i brought all of my studio supplies in to share – vintage wallpaper books, origami paper, sheet music, pens, ink, pastels and lots and lots of glitter! 
i’m always quite amazed i can get any words out. high school speech class used to be the most terrifying thing, 
but once everyone starts laughing and creating…
 and i see everyone painting…
i just want to paint too!
 this is the beginning of my little owl.
i just love seeing everyone’s owls! each one is always so unique and always such a reflection of the artist!
we always have such an amazing time! and i am so happy to have met so many fabulous people! and for them to have shared their day with me!

  3. I LOVE the name GLITTER WORKSHOP!
    I always tell my friends that if a little glitter is good, a lot of glitter is better! And Glitter makes life more fun. AND there is no such thing as too much Glitter!
