I am starting a painting class tomorrow night!!!
Serendipity and lady luck are on my side and with a little help from a friend I am able to join a local painting group that meets once a week...all in German...
Being the absurdly visual person that I am...Monkey see ...Monkey do... I should be fine!!!
I am SO happy....!!!

So far, I am still working on getting the face to look right, and am really learning about rendering her face in watercolor...not easy....but fun and interesting, I want her to look real but surreal at the same moment...peaceful in a the waters run deep sort of way...stay tuned.
These were really cool smal sculptures made out of paper pulp , painted and suspended, very cool.
We saw some very interesting groupings made with photographs painted over with a thick paint like Jesso and then and scraped clean with a blade leaving a portion of the painting exposed...very cool idea for my photos or for a photo collage.
