Oh.. The Talent I See!

Lucky me to teach a 2 day Painted Quilt Art Class at Road To California.  I had 20 incredible students. On the second day afternoon, we had a wall of fame discussion with each artist. So rewarding!!!!  I got a few of the pictures before the end of class departures.  My apologies to those I missed.

 Yikes... I can remember who did most of these... Patty Latourell  says this is her first painting ever. WOW! Just read an email she is quilting it already.  Can't wait to see the finished piece.  BEAUTIFUL Cardinals.
A very nice beginning of the dragonfly.
Gretchen has a good start on this Magnolia. To be added leaves will create the edges of the flower petals.
Elodie Keene is painting an exceptional image translated from her own photo of travels in China. The still waters in this canal are being achieved in a wet into wet approach... complete with hairdryer to ward off unwanted bleeding into other areas.  I can't wait to see this finished.
Claudia has translated a favorite snapshot of her (now 20+ year old) grandson in short pants IN snow. OHHHH to be young !  Love his hair. What an adorable young boy!
The gentleman in the group (Bruce) completed a first ever painting. I could see the lightbulbs going off as he worked.  I think he was pretty happy with his result. 
Tanya's horse is in itself a piece of art. She began in timid style on day one.... and began adding significant values by end of day. Day 2... get out of this woman's way.... she was on her game and as you can see, Tanya created an exceptional result she will treasure forever.
