Karin Jurick Workshop and Party Prep

Bathing Beauty
16x20, oil on panel

You may recognize this precious child - click here to see where I've painted her before. It was so difficult for me to not dwell on her beautiful curls: "put down that brush - this is where we get into trouble." This painting will be framed to go to the upcoming Art Party. It has been such an exciting week as we've continued to do party prep!
Another bit of great news - I'm leaving this week to play for a few days in Georgia and So. Carolina before attending Karin Jurick's workshop at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina in Hilton Head next week. I cannot wait to soak up all this gifted artist has to teach - can you imagine how lucky I feel? I shipped my paints and brushes today and this will be a technology-free vacation: no blogging, no email. Just watching, listening, learning, painting. [OK, probably a teensy-tiny little pinch of eating, drinking, laughing, beach walking] Apologies if this is an inconvenience for anyone - I'll be back November 8, just in time for the party November 11. Thank you to Mr. Right, our kids, and all our friends who are pitch-hitting.

You have mastered the art of reflection and skin tones. Really wonderful, Mitzi. Have a great time at Karin workshop. I'm very jealous!

Great job, Mitzi. Love the figurative drawing, reflection and colors. All the better to have done it so large.

Have a fun in Hilton Head.

It so happens that I am right in the midst of doing a similar scene on a 12x12. My nephews are the models. I hope I do as well.
