I have really enjoyed all the sketching and painting I have done while in Cedar Key, Florida. I attempted to immortilize Jane's lovely orchids. The pansies are blooming in February!
This is my morning coffee cup and another orchid. I plan to give this painting to Jane as a thank you for all she did for us this holiday. I was invited to potlucks, a dinner out, and two visits to the womens' club as a guest.
I am sad to be finished all my lessons. In lesson six we are to paint animals before they move.
This is a sleeping Oatie!
In this lesson I made a mixed media box for my sketches. I bought some Bristol board in the local grocery store, used gesso and acrylic paints and made my own stencils from motifs I designed.

After completeing this on line class I am eager to start another one with Jane La Fasio.
I enjoyed seeing the other participant's art and getting comments form Jane to improve my skills.
A very positive experience!
