Gut Art Week 1 and 2



I am so LOVING Gut Art, the class I'm taking with Mystele. The ladies in the class are such an awesome group! We do two "field trips" each week. This gal is from week 2, field trip 1. I may add some final touches to her yet.




These next two birds are from week 1, field trip 2 and I am so in love with them both. I had so much fun with these and feel like I reached a new place in my art here.



This final piece is one that I really do not like much at all. I think I could like her if I revisit this field trip, but I think she needs more oomph. She is from week 1, field trip 2.

Linking up with Paint Party Friday!

  1. That's funny cause the last girl is hands down my favorite piece. Love the colorblocking! In fact, she is about to be pinned to my "It's All About the Face" board on Pinterest!

  2. Isn't it fun when our art takes a turn in a new direction - and we love what we see? It's kinda like flying. Beautiful, all of it. Happy PPF

  9. As much as I like the top painting, I'd have to say that the last one is my favorite! Don't do anything to her except frame her.
