OK, this was challenging for sure but I really enjoyed it. I had oil paint all over me but everyone else did too so I didn't feel so bad. I have hardly iced a cake much less this. I really want to do more if this kind of painting if I can just make myself do it. They are tulips but as I painted them they grew very big but there was really no turning back at that point. We only had one afternoon to paint them. In the morning we watched the teacher paint one in 30 minutes. This one will take months to dry in this high humidity down here!
Denis Brown, calligrapher and letter designer extraordinaire from Ireland is coming to my studio Wednesday and Thursday to do a workshop for 9 of us. Denis is one of the foremost calligraphers in the world and we are very lucky to get him to come this way since his first stop is Miami. This class is certainly not for sissies, that's for sure! So we just need to buck up and go for it! Bring it on, Denis!! I might not get to post anything for a few days but I will try and get some pictures of the famous Denis as he is teaching us and demonstrating.
