I find it exciting and a little nerve-wracking (mostly just a bit of stage fright). What I do like about it is that although the motifs I'm using as the anchors for the classes are fairly traditional, there are elements in each of the segments that are less so. It's fun to move slightly sideways of the norm and introduce people (particularly beginning painters) to the more playful side of acrylics. That's where I live, and it's a fun place
THE (mostly) DAILY DETAIL
I get really jazzed over the little details in artwork. In the process of working, and sometimes long after a piece is finished, there are these small areas that grab me, draw me in, entrance me. It could be the way a texture has been wrought, or how the colours shimmer next to one another, or how quiet the space feels when I focus on it.
