My annual art retreat at Spider Lake was a refreshing week away from any news, just water, art and conversation with my dear friend and fellow artist, Terry. I was taking advantage of a workshop, Zen Painting by Jodi Ohl. Like many artists during this pandemic, Jodi offered some of her classes at a discount rate. Given all that has been going on this year I figured I could use some Zen time. It was relaxing -- some of the time.
I got carried away with the doodling and think I over did but it was/is relaxing once I accepted that I wasn't in charge of the outcome. This photo is four 6" x 6" pieces.
I have a few more mixed media pieces in process and I got a couple watercolor pieces done before coming back to reality. This is one of the watercolors.
and this guy done in mixed media was fun --
