"Kaleidoscope" Color Studies

More color studies that I created as part of an online class I'm taking with Jacqueline Newbold, "Color: the Good, the Bad and the Beautiful". Having a fun time and learning so much.


"Coloful Neutrals" wheel I made by mixing primary colors. Finally learning how to mix colors!

Tickled Pink!

The art retreat director for an online class I am taking just featured both my mom's and my pear studies in the session two newsletter. Very cool!

Montmartre Journal Page

I also took an online class earlier in the summer with Diana Gessler on Illustrated Travel Journaling, also with Artful Gatherings. Here's a two page spread I did for that class about my walk in the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris.


Pear Color Studies

I'm taking an online art class with Jacqueline Newbold through Artful Gatherings. Artful Gatherings is an online summer art "retreat" with many different classes. The class I am in now is about using the color wheel...choosing colors, mixing colors, mingling colors. Here's some pear studies I finished today. Having a lot of fun!

More Belt Test Photos

Here's some more photos from my yellow belt test, taken by Annaliese A. Photography. I was grappling and demonstrating self-defense with Dr. Elrod. The fellow was my testing judge, Mr. Bishop.

Mountain Walks

We were in the NE Georgia mountains this weekend and went walking both days on a nice 3 mile paved trail that was made on a defunct railroad track.
