Distinguished guests visit the cellar studio

My two student teachers Dan and Ciara along with Dan's co-op Rachel actually learned "hands-on" how I work the plaster (joint compound) to make my textured paintings.
Of course we talked about student teaching, too.
The three guests were excellent students with high powers of concentration! Below is Ciara's work featuring her daughter's name. Above is Dan's work - I've since used the circular grooves in a couple of new paintings. Below is Rachel's Baroque looking piece! You may wonder where is the color? Ah, the plaster needs 48 hours to dry. The color will be added another time.

It's always interesting to see how other artists approach this technique. Someday, I will make one!
