OIL PAINTING VENTURE!

KITE BEACH
5" x 5" oil

Well this was sure an exciting adventure!

Was very fortunate to take a 1/2 day class 
with Heather Burton in Maui. If anyone out there 
has followed me, you realize this is quite a step,
 since I'm a devoted pastelist. But hey, I decided 
to step into the wild side.  

So above, "KITE BEACH" is my little attempt 
and below is a pic of Heather and me.

Was such an enjoyable + insightful time Heather - thanks!

psst . . .  I'm going to have to do this again!
