This is my favorite painting that I did at Carol Marine's workshop last week. The workshop was fabulous! I learned much more this time than 2 years ago -I reminded myself of what I tell my own students: you can only learn what you are ready for. I chose to paint fairly difficult subjects throughout the workshop, just to push my learning level. This is the first time I have painted glass as a subject, and it was great fun to play with the distortions, and trying to figure out why glass looks like it does. The red box is one that Carol gave each of us to put our fears into, so I thought it would be appropriate to have it in this painting.

Great job on the glass. I liked your comment that you learned more the 2nd time in her workshop because you were ready for it. I took her workshop several years ago as an absolute rookie. I've signed up for a 2nd time next year. I hope I do as well as you!
