Azalea Art Winners and Talented Artists

I have a wonderful opportunity to instruct and work with aspiring artists. I encouraged them all to enter their work in the local Azalea Art event just as my art mentor and friend, Audi Stanton, encouraged me and her students.

Here are the results of these talented artists.

They all won ribbons!  The youngest at age 10 won Best of Class in pottery. This means she beat out all  pottery submissions in the show.  The oldest at 76 won first, second and honorable mention for her pottery and the 12 year old won third place for her watercolor.
Congratulations to all these award winning artists.

I love John the Baptist! Here is a painting with limited palette. I used a paper towel to make the light around John's head.

Jesus In The Garden of Gethsemane

This is a painting I did of Jesus In The Garden of Gethsemane. I used a limited oil palette.
I wanted the viewer eyes to rest on Our Lord's right hand and view the painting in a circular motion. Right hand, his precious face,  left hand and back to the right hand, again. Was I successful?

HOLY HOLY HOLY TRANSFIGURATION MONASTERY

My husband and I spent a week at a retreat painting icons at the Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Redwood Valley, CA. Here are the steps.
1) Trace your drawing onto a gesso board.
2) Etch out the drawing.
3) Write people's name that you want to pray for over the drawing.
4) From the Bible, in the beginner there was darkness. So you start with a dark temper color. Tempera is egg, vinegar and water.
5) You put down clay for where the gold will be and then put sheets of gold over it.
6) .Then you begin to paint in layers the icon while in prayer.
7) When it dries, seal it with beeswax with lavender.
Here is my painting of  the Good Shepard,
