The Goal

I love this quote. Most of my art is approached this way. Yes, I have a general idea of what I'm going to work on, but it mostly all comes together on it's own! I think the freedom of experimentation and having no expectation is so important!!! And that's what this weeks Gallery 116 class was like.

Thank you, Susan, for having your camera there, and for sending me these pictures of your finished projects! Susan, and her sister Colette, came to class together. We had a great time, but neither of them left with a completely finished project. But, creation took it's course! Here is Susan's finished piece! It's a little hard to read, but it says "Nothing Great is created without enthusiasm."
One of the girls in our class was in high school. I was so thrilled that she came! She told me, "I knew I would be coming by myself, but I wasn't going to miss it! I'm bringing friends back next time!" What a joy! Since she is somewhat familiar with these processes through her art classes at school, her idea came to her quickly, and she left home with this finished product.
Here is Colette with her canvas! Susan sent me this picture, and said that Colette's husband wrote "help, my wife can't stop working on this project :)" So exciting!
Susan also told me about her daughter's Girl Scout group that she would love to introduce this to. She tried it out with them this week, and her daughter, Claire, loved it! She had so much fun that she had to make another one after the group left!!!
Thank you, ladies, for sharing your art with us! I had a great time, and look forward to creating with you again soon! ...Possibly making ornaments on Dec. 8?! :)
