Abstract Acrylic, 20" x 24" x 1.5"
I was very fortunate to host a three day abstract workshop in Atlanta last week. Sixteen fabulous artists joined me and we painted, laughed, painted, ate, painted, role played, painted and laughed a lot more. As I have often said, this is just too much fun to be considered work.
I am truly convinced that artists are special people. They are fun and kind and caring and genuinely really great people. This past week there were many artists in my class who hadn't really painted abstracts before. Some hadn't painted with acrylics. Many hadn't painted with a palette knife. And none had made a presentation to a client with paintings created on canvas paper!
On the last day of the workshop I gave each of my students a portfolio which showed a picture of a room with fabric samples and paint samples. Each artist then created sample abstract paintings (on canvas paper) and then presented me (the client) with their ideas. The results were unbelievable. Absolutely fantastic. And the presentations were polished, informative and in some cases pretty funny. As a joke my class totaled up all of the "purchases" of their art that I made. Somehow I managed, as the "fake" client, to spend $64,000 that day.
As you can imagine I was very impressed ...
