Stretching


As a two-dimensional-artist-turned-three-dimensional-artist, I am coming full circle. It is never wise to get too comfortable so I am stretching myself once again. My new adventure is mixed media, acrylic, encaustic and collage. Not sure what will come of it. I am also renewing my love of the horse in my painting and may soon consider selling, although I don't seem to be as productive a painter as I am a potter. This piece was created in a class with a world renowned equine painter who hovered over my painting, claiming the eye "disturbed" him, grabbed my brush and proceeded to totally screw it up! I managed to fix it but Mr. Painter never came near me again for the rest of the class. Wise move on his part!

Hooray for the stretch!!! Good for you — and lovely work! I'm appalled by the fact that the instructor would've touched your canvas; I've NEVER heard of that. But you brought him back, and I can't wait to see more :)

Your painting is beautiful! I love horses too and find them inspiring. Oh and I'm glad to hear he didn't come near you again, that story would have a totally different ending!

Great job!
