Thank You, Misty
At the beginning of the year, I treated myself to an online class with Misty Mawn, whose work I have long admired. I mean, I can sit here and look at a wonderful painting of hers for a very loooonnnng time. Sometimes (I'll admit it), her work brings me to tears. I can't explain why. I guess, it touches me so. I think, man if I can paint like that. So, in January, I started her class "Drawing and Painting Portraits" and have been painting ever since. God, I hope I'm evolving, improving, developing better skills. And, oh, my goodness, I have fallen in love with those yummy oil paintstiks! (I used them in the above picture.) Thanks, Misty, for those fabulous videos and fantastic instructions and demonstrations. I loved this class!!!
