Coffee and Critiques...

Today the Van Go Go Girls met for coffee and a bit of Art talk on a drizzly dreary fall Tulsa day.  As we sipped on good coffee served in pink Willow Ware cups and enjoyed fresh muffins from Queenie's, I learned so many things.


                                             




Rome wasn't built in a day and neither is a real artist.  So much study, trial and error go in to creating a true work of art.  The home we met in had so many beautiful paintings and sculptures, and the yard looked like that of a park.  It was just a testament to gracious living as well as thought out subjects to paint and paintings to collect.




For my part, I took the two painting above for critique and faired better than I probably deserved.  There is much improvement in my technique of painting metals and I had such a good time with it, now I am looking for new shiny items to paint.  

Looking forward to more critique sessions, as that is where one learns and one has the chance to improve.
