learning to paint at craftedu
So I said "you've been holding out on me!" And, she (Jeanne Harlan-Marriott) had. I happened to be cruising through the images posted on our community pages (you put images up on your personal page and it queues up in the slide show in the main page). I thought, "wow, Harlan's a photographer, too, cool!" I decided to examine the photographs more closely and, guess what, they're oil paintings! Yup, oil paintings - which led to "you've been holding out on me!"
So now, Harlan's working on her classes and someday, I may paint. I'll learn Trompe L'oeile and acrylics from Lauren (the incredible box from her Poker Box Class is pictured above - if there's any confusion about this, she teaches how to paint those cards and chips on that box, they're not glued on!) and I'll learn oils and nature themes from Harlan. I'm pretty excited about the whole thing. Excited? I guess it'd be more accurate to say I feel like my hair's on fire!
