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!!!
