January Days

January days are flying by. Hope you are settling into the New Year! I kicked off the year by taking an oil painting workshop with Kelli Folsom. It was a great four days of easel time. Watching her mix paint, seeing how she handles the brush, getting a feel for all that thick, juicy paint…
