“Art is not just ornamental – an enhancement of life. It is a path in itself – a way out of the predictable and conventional – a map to self discovery.” –Gabrielle Roth
I just finished an amazing 3 month online workshop with Nicholas Wilton – Art2Life. It wasn’t a workshop based on learning new painting techniques necessarily. Although we did discuss the principles of design and a little about color theory, materials and tools. It was more about discovering and clarifying my own artistic path. Another wonderful side effect from this class was getting to know about 200 other artists from all over the world who I shared these lessons with. No matter where we are, we are now connected by the Art2Life community. It’s brilliant really and I highly recommend attending any of his various workshops (click on the link to visit his webpage to learn more).
Here is some of my new work done in this workshop —
“then, she began to breathe, and live, and every moment took her to a place where goodbyes were hard to come by. she was in love, but not in love with someone or something, she was in love with her life. and for the first time, in a long time, everything was inspiring.” -r.m. drake
