Day 6, Cityscape

Day 6

30 in 30 hosted by Leslie Saeta.

I live close to the city of Rockford. It's quite a gem of a city with a bad rep. (It's been going through a lot of growing pains which started when  all the manufacturing jobs went overseas.) But Rockford has a wonderful community of Artists. One of it's studios holds a place near and dear to my heart. 317 Studio &Gallery  

 It's the home to many artists and many budding artists. This painting is from one of their Loaded Brush  painting nights where Director Therese Rowinski will take you through everything you need to know to create a painting. I teach alcohol ink classes there. Sometimes it's just good to sit back, kick off your shoes and just paint with the rest of the world.

  1. Love the bits of color, "light", and the movement in the sky. The details in the buildings have me looking closely. Just as I would in life. Interesting!

  2. It's funny Shelia. This was one of those group painting parties. It was good for me to step into someone else's shoes ( or palette knife) and see how they paint. Not use to painting in 2 hours start to finish.
