Ruby Reds


10" x 8" on Canvas Board
Today was the start of the "30 paintings in 30 days" challenge created by Leslie Saeta.  This past year was a big one for me......not only did I take a workshop with Dreama Tolle Perry in Paris.....Ky! but I got to take a workshop with Jerry Fresia in Lenno, Italy.  This was my 25th wedding anniversary present from my number one guy......we spent a week on the beautiful Lake Como then we did a 7 day barge trip down the Rhine.  What can you say.....it was dreamland.
My artist journey has had many streets and avenues with major intersections that has change my visual poetry.  The workshop with Dreama made me understand transperant colors in oil and how to use them.  Jerry talk me the" mechanics of impressionism" taught to him by Bill Schultz who was taught by Robert Brackman who intern studied with Monet during the rise of impressionism in France. 
So let the games begin!

Very Nice - I didn't get mine posted until 10:30 and tomorrow I work all day - Ugh, don't know when I'll get it done.
