I went to Santa Barbara for two weeks of painting the week after my last Claremont Class. It was supposed to make the fact that I had "retired " that much less painful. It gave me something else to think about and that was good. This week we will see how I deal without the class to prepare for.
Before I went to SB I was to decide what my series would be about. Since I had been on many trips the last two or three years and seem many different oceans of the world I wanted to paint "The Feeling and Impressions of the different oceans." I enjoyed the workshop and learned a lot, but was not sure I was successful in my series quest. I will keep working on some of the paintings to see if I can refine them a bit.
