Many of my works are inspired by the colors, shapes and patterns of the 50’s through the 70’s. Join me for this 3 hour workshop where we’ll create 1-2 eclectic abstract pieces by layering paint, paper and texture products to create a fun retro piece. We’ll cover the basics of color, composition and design with demonstrations to show you how these paintings are built from start to finish.

use of fine line bottles with GOLDEN High Flow colors, shared collage papers, shared texture products and stencil
