Class 8— November 18—Final Critique and Class Potluck

Sidewalk Fall, gouache on Somerset Black Velvet, 4" x 5.5"

I missed the critique this session because of my mother's final illness and death, but my wonderful students went ahead and held the potluck and a group critique! What a great bunch you are. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart.

I've posted a painting of my mother and aunt on my Art and Faith blog. Some of my students will recall Mom taking classes a few years back. She visited the class critique last year, enjoying the camaraderie and food. She never failed to ask me how the class went each Thursday, and inquired if there were people she knew there, too. 

We plan a gathering next Tuesday, November 30, to celebrate her life. I'll send out details in a day or two. If you knew Mom, I'd love to hear your memory. Thanks.

Details on the January class are on hold for a while, as we sort out some things.

Meanwhile, keep on painting!
