My friend, who shall remain un-named, visited for Thanksgiving. She and I are working on a presentation for the upcoming NAEA Convention in Seattle. The idea is to discuss how art educators stay current in their own artistic practice. The un-named friend had never painted with oils so I gave her some time to play with different approaches to the material. Below are her results.
Any opportunity I have to study under Kathleen Eastwood is a good day. It was great to reconnect with this group of supportive women to work on figurative painting for a full day. The results aren't my strongest but I know I am continuing to grow by taking on these challenges.

During my undergraduate studies, I spent a great deal of time in the painting studio working with traditional oils. Teaching middle school art for the past 12 years has taken me away from those roots. This "one a day" project is aimed at re-inspiring that creativity and technique.
