The girls gathered to paint again yesterday. It's been two weeks since I posted their birds nest. You might recall how proud of them I was that day, realizing that they had turned the corner from beginner to painter. It hasn't been easy but their consistence and perseverance has paid off. Yesterday, we studied the style of Kim Parker. A contemporary artist that paints colorful flowers in her own unique, lyrical style. She is a class favorite! Several have read her book and treasure it. I have never met Kim Parker, but I know by the way she paints that I like her. Truthfully I consider her a friend, site unseen. Here is the study I painted (....... please excuse my toes, I am not a foot model).
