Last Thursday I attended and posted about a painting class at Maggie Ruley's studio. I really enjoyed it and felt really enthused when I got home.
I had seen a painting at The Studios show in March. Loved it and thought something similar would be good. Since then, I've seen about a dozen similar ones in Pinterest and figured I would try it.
I've had this canvas cut and in this frame for years (years is NOT an exaggeration). I took the second photo (one I found on the Internet - similar to the one I saw in March) and sketched it on the canvas. Step 1 - done.
A little more detail added. Sorry about the feet in the picture. Oh well, that's the problem with my TINY studio space. Doesn't handle big paintings..
Still more details being added.
You notice that I left out the board that props the boat up in the picture. Didn't think it was necessary.
This is really fun. I will have to go through my pictures and see if there is anything I want to paint. I expect there is and I will post when completed.

Yesterday my friend Michelle and I attended an afternoon painting class by Maggie Ruley. She has a great shop with great paintings.
The medium us acrylic. One I am familiar with but not too experienced with.

Dressed to the Nines is an english idiom meaning "to perfection" or "to the highest degree". That's my title for the two assemblages I created. Pinterest is going to be the death of me. So many ideas and so little time to do all of them. Similar ideas are all over Pinterest and this is my interpretation.
They were so much fun!!!
