It is almost 2008 and I am looking forward to this year.
My last session of colored pencil classes with Ann Arbor Rec and Ed was rewarding. There were a lot of people who made great progress and really took to using colored pencils. The nice thing about this medium is that it is clean and not intimidating. I find that working on a piece in cp is very calming. Something about the process can put you in "the zone" of positive feelings and creativity.
I did this "fall pears" piece after the fall session and continued my obsession with borders. I had fun. The upcoming winter session of classes should be great. I hope to incorporate new projects and exercises to be done in class.
