When you experiment with something new you never know what will happen. This year has brought several new adventures, one is a design class I am taking at NIU. The first project we tackled involved an abstract art project with india ink and found objects. I had a great time working on this project. This little peek into the fun and freedom I felt working in the abstract stayed with me. When I spotted a local artist offering a beginners course to oil and wax and abstract, I knew I had to check it out. And I am so glad I did! I was very happy with the results and I definitely plan on moving forward in this direction.
