Painting with Tesia was golden!

 Tesia Blackburn's workshop was a blast!
I took a three day workshop with fine artist, Tesia Blackburn
in her art studio at the Hunter's Point Shipyard Art Studios in San Francisco.

The class was Mixed Media Mania...we got to play with all my favorite mediums!
Golden's Gloss & Matte Gels, Glass Bead Gel, Molding Pastes galore, 
Golden's awesome fluid acrylic paints, and more . . . it was heaven!

 The photo above is all the 9x12 canvas boards 
I made samples of the different techniques in class.  
Each panel consist of five or more layers of paint, gels and collage materials.
I had fun exploring with each technique, especially the faux encaustic panel.
I'm not crazy for any of my compositions, but it was the process that counts!

Check out some more photos from the class on Tesia's Flicker site.
I definitely enjoyed Tesia's workshop, she has such a positive 
and supportive teaching style, and her high energy is contagious!
I plan to attend another class soon, so should you!

My art to yours,
