End of an Era

This 9 x 9 inch painting is from an earlier lesson in Extreme Composition.

Today is the last day of the first two-thirds of my life.  The end of an era.  Tomorrow begins a new one, and I'll say more about this then.

Today I'll finish up work for the final lesson of Extreme Comp.  And after that I'll be free to explore creative paths on my own.  I think I'm ready to follow my muse, unhindered, at this point.  I have to say, though, that if abstract painting is something you want to explore, don't miss the opportunity, live or online, to work with Jane Davies.  Really, her instruction is not to be missed.

Good Luck!
Jane Davies is very inviting and I'm sure I will follow your suggestion sometime. Right now, in March, I'm about to start another online course with Dionne Swift, a textile artist here in the UK. This time it's Drawing for Textiles and I'm really looking forward to it ... I will blog a little as the course runs.

Nice to have new beginnings ... I'll be following along on your new art journey!

I agree. She is a great teacher and it was a great class. I wish I could have kept up with it but things at home have taken over. I do hope to go back to it eventually. I think we have access to the videos forever. And I have the pdfs as well.

I don't think to use that trick of letting parts of the design go off the edge like you've done here. It is so effective, but my brain always says everything needs to fit within the frame. Symmetry, I guess, is where my brain gets stuck. I think this is another of your really successful ones.

I like this one a lot. That little white line just puts the finishing touch on it.
