Here are your images. Next week's events and "tips" are at the bottom.

Barbara - Texture 1

We'll continue with what we've been doing. I'll demonstrate attaching the cleat to the plexiglas, adhering silver leaf with gold size to clear plexiglas.

It's party time. Everyone ready for a group photo?

Life and art tips -
From Maya Lin -
Don't not do something because of laziness.

From Candace Pappas (Chelsea, Michigan painter) -
If you're trying to decide if your artwork is finished or not, do this thought experiment. Image your piece alone on a white museum wall. You're walking down the hall, you turn the corner and see your artwork. Are you pleased?

The music from last week was Guy Clark from Keepers
