While at the WSNC Annual Meeting we were all given a great book mark! It said:

 

"Artist Linda Baker often shares her Stages of a Painting with her students. Linda allowed WSNC to share these words of Wisom.

What does a Body of Work look like. What is a "body" of work? Why is it important?

As a follow up to the "All In A Row" I decided to try the same concept but without the lines separating the areas. It was even more of a challenge. This time I moved from Primary and secondary colors to the Intermediates. The two combinations are blue-green and red-or...
