An Education

The last five weeks, I’ve been studying principles of art and design, and artists of the past and present, with Misty Mawn, in her online class, Art Entwined. 

There was so much packed into the 5 week course, that I just scratched the surface of all the assignments. She really helps us delve into our heads, our hearts, our own selves…to express that into pencil line, ink, paint, words, clay, and photographs. Among so many other things, I learned valuable color mixing theory, that I know will affect my future paintings. Here’s just some of the assignments I managed to work on.


I’ll be getting back in the art room soon to put into practice some of the things I’ve learned. There’s no doubt, there will be more new paintings in the Etsy shop in April!


All colors are the friends of their neighbors and the lovers of their opposites. ~ Marc Chagall
