I'm preparing for a workshop next month and have decided to bring several samples along with sketches and a few of my books as inspiration for the attendees. I'm including portraits, canoes, animals, landscapes, and wildflowers in the hopes that seeing some of the things I've been creating will spur the creative juices of other artists. I love creating a vibrantly coloured and patterned background for my pieces as it gives me time to think about what I'd like to create on top of it, plus it always helps reduce my anxiety levels over a blank canvas. I'm really looking forward to it and hope that I can share some words of encouragement.
