I have finally gotten around, years later, to putting a SHOP back on my webite. It's been all about healing my hands so I can be on the computer more, but not too much. And teaching has been my main focus and joy for years now. My students and their blossoming talent continue to inspire me.

So thank you for visiting, and hope you enjoy the many art tips in my BLOG, and paintings in my SHOP and just feel blessed while you hang around awhile.

ART TIP: Painting Over

Monday, February 27, 2017

Ah, faces.

Just had to paint one.

Grabbed an old study



and ....

this face emerged.

Emerging - portrait by Joanie Springer 2017FEB
9 x 12
140lb watercolor paper
work in progress, but almost done

Moral of the story: Never get rid of your studies!  Paint on them. This painting is much more fun that it appears against that crazy abstract background, don't you think?
