Recently I took a three-day oil on copper workshop. I worked hard not to have any expectations. For me, this is the best, most open way to go. If I don’t have expectations it allows me to take in and learn everything I can.
The workshop is the brainchild of artist Richard Hawk, he shares openly his ideas and secrets. Richard came along at just about the perfect time in my life. Sure I would have loved doing all this twenty or thirty years ago, but was Richard ready to teach all these interesting techniques and methods? Was I open and ready to learn, and apply all that I am now? It’s all questionable isn’t it?
After taking this workshop, this is what has oozed out of me.
The end of July will be a second Copper Workshop. More information; the next step I’m told. I am excited this time, and I do have expectations. Expectations because I know how great the first workshop was and how excited I was when it was finished. This time will be even more exciting, because I have already purchased oil colors to add to what I have and copper to paint on, so you bet, I am excited! I can’t wait to show you all the good stuff….
