I didn't get as much done today as I wanted to, but I like the contrast I'm getting.
This painting is almost like a mandala. It's almost meditative, working from the center outward. I wish it wasn't so cumbersome to carry -- I'd take it home every day to work on. Painting is such a wonderful stress-reliever, and the only side effect is losing track of time.
I got a chance to take in the printmaking exhibit at Taylor Books -- AWESOME stuff! Two of the artists, Peter Massing and Mary Grassell, were professors I had at Marshall University. I love their work.
My students are going to start printmaking and silk painting when they get back from Spring Break -- two of my favorite things to teach. I am looking forward to those projects. I just hope they'll get the supplies over Spring Break so we don't have stragglers.
