Diane Culhane's Online Class: Between Speech & Silence as part of Carla Sonheim's Summer Art Camp!

WOW WEE!  Was that A lot of FUN!!! 

I just finished taking one of the online classes over at Carla Sonheim's Summer Art Camp taught by Diane Culhane. 

Here are the paintings/drawings I completed.

These are from DAY 1: 

and last but not least:

Here are my finished mixed media collages from DAY 2 and DAY 3:

My husband calls her "Bubbles the Ballerina". 

And this is from DAY 2 and DAY 3 as well.  I got creative and used a whiskey bottle instead of paper.

Instead of "Time In A Bottle".... we have "Time ON A Bottle" 

another view:

and another mixed media on paper:

This one is my pride and joy!  I call her "Flora"...

DAY 4 and DAY 5:

These next two were painted onto a cedar fence board...

So, if you are looking to take a wonderfully fun and very informative online art class, I highly recommend taking Diane Culhane's: Between Speech & Silence offered over at Carla Sonheim's blog. 

Wishing all of you a great weekend! 

Cheers! & Happy Painting;  "Break a Bristle"....
