  1. I got totally bogged down drawing each petal and basically not doing things the way you recommended, Scott. I also think for flowers maybe smoother paper might have blended better, not sure? Flowers feel very claustrophobic for me… ?

  2. We got transferred to FL from CA. An art buddy of mine in Sacramento has been linking up with me for each of the classes. He’s not posting his work but this one of his….I think is terrific, his best so far, and really NEEDS to be shared. This has been a great gift from Artist’s Network and Scott and has been a great way to meet new friends AND connect with old ones
