I took an online painting workshop this winter with Flora Bowley called Bloom True. It was much more than a painting class… it was lessons in life and a way of being. There was so much wisdom shared and gentle touches from Flora along the way as she patiently guided students from all over the world in venturing into new creative territory. I have painted off and on for years, initially with watercolors and recently with acrylics, but this class gave me a fresh perspective on the whole painting process. I have also taken a number of online art classes and have to say that this class was absolutely awesome! I finished this canvas last month and am entering the piece in a juried art show that will be held at Wesleyan University in June. I have entered juried shows before and there is always the fear of rejection but you have to get past that and believe in yourself no matter what the outcome.
