Blue layer on top of yellow layer - one more layer to go!

My color work on the Cream Ridge Winery piece is nearing completion. I have learned much from the experience of making the piece and from feedback from Tim at the Winery. Today I will start the final version (and this version will most likely be in my February exhibit at the Gmeiner in Wellsboro, PA.)

Student work

 I had the pleasure this past week of teaching a class at Gayle Hill's Art Camp here at Mansfield University. This was a great class of hard working and talented students ranging from 13 to 18 years of age. Each student made five pieces - a couple of quite small ones and three medium sized works. Above is one of Cecelia's pieces.
 Above is one of Rob's pieces and below is one of Nick's.
