How Did That Happen?

I'm coming up for air.   How in the world have I gotten myself into concurrent classes?  I just want to take  in everything I can.  There are so many classes and not enough time.  I'm in Kim Klassen's 
"Test Kitchen" and her new class on textures plus I'm taking Julie Prichard and Chris Cozen's class "Chaos and Calm".  I guess I figure I can handle it since Julie's and Chris's class is a go at your own speed class.  Kim's upcoming class on textures is 13 weeks I believe.
So to catch up..... two paintings I'm working on outside of the classes.  They are unfinished so I will post either the next step or the finished paintings.

A collage I did in Chris Cozen's class in Pasadena a couple weeks ago
plus some Photoshop Elements creations I've done in Kim's "Test Kitchen" -- the makeup brushes resplendent with wonderful textures from Kim and from DJ Pettit.
plus the storyboard
A while back I did a 20 minute photo shoot in my bathrooom as a challenge for "Clickin' Moms" and I used some of those images for these two pieces.
I'm hoping Chris and Julie's classes will get my painting muse going again.  I've neglected my painting  since I discovered Photoshop.
Have a glorious day!!

Love the colors in this! I'm exploring in from OWOH! I loved your print for OWOH but since I wouldn't be able to take it if I won (have to clear art through my husband...it's a mutual thing...we agree to agree on all our decorating) I thought I'd stop by another post and say hello!

I'm originally from SouthernCalifornia...lived in the mountains in Twin Peaks and before that grew up on a boat out in Long Beach/Wilmington. I'm in Texas now, though I try to get back when I can. And, I'm an artist too.

So nice to meet you!
