Announcing :: Navigating the Journal with Jill K. Berry


I'm excited to announce a 2-day workshop that's coming up in Studio Crescendoh title:

Navigating the Journal with Jill K. Berry

JillIt's all about approaching the art journal where we explore and express through icons and concepts found in maps. Cool stuff.

Along with the wonderful art, you're in for a treat with Jill the human being. I have great admiration for who she is and the energy that she puts forth into the universe through her art, her energy.

Some answers to questions that I've been getting about this class:

Q: I've taken Painting by Heart before. Can I take it again?
A: Yes. There are several people who have taken it again and been able to digest and relearn important lessons.

Q: Can I sign up for both days?
A: For sure. It will be the same material but again, you are welcome to take it both days to better digest all of the information and just get quicker into your groove and to do more back-and-forth feedback with me as you desire.

Q: Seems like every time, the content slightly changes. Is that correct?
A: Inevitably so. I try to keep the same skeletal structure but as I continue to grow and evolve and discover, I do bring in new knowledge into class. :)

Q: Will you offer it again this year?
A: I plan on offering this class in Studio CRESCENDOh no less than 4 times a year.

Q: Will you ever offer this as a 2-day class and cover more info?
A: Maybe.

Q: Will you ever offer this as an online class?
A: Probably. But it won't be for a long while.

ALSO ...

There are a few opportunities that are now open for those who would like to paint in the company of other painters in The Painting Studio ... a great way to learn and share with like-minded painters. :) Enrollment for The Painting Studio is NOW open here.

I am happy to announce that The Painting Studio is back in Studio CRESCENDOh, a program that offers pariticipants the opportunity to paint for a full day in the studio, in the company of other painters.

This is not a workshop where methods are taught ... simply an opportunity to paint, watch others paint, and allow a natural dialogue to happen amongst those who paint together. To observe and be observed, to inquire, to share, and to inspire.

Painting in the Studio


I usually paint in my home studio at night. Never during the day and never in Studio Crescendoh, unless I'm teaching there. Today, I painted for half a day in Studio Crescendoh, just to try it out. In the light of day ... reminding myself that this is part of my job. To paint. In the light of day. In the dark of night. To paint has become part of my job. Gawd. How'd that ever happen? Hashtag: grateful.

IMG_7014I didn't have my usual creature comforts but I really enjoyed the process. It was so all about the painting ... no loading the washing machine in between strokes, no letting the dogs in or out, no going to the fridge to get a snack. There was absolutely no distraction. Just me, my music, and the beautiful natural light. And I could sprawl everything out and work on several pieces at once.

I also enjoyed that it was during normal weekday work hours ... to see and be seen by a workforce ... lawyers lawyering, hair dressers hair dressing, shop owners selling ... and painters painting.

IMG_7022Some works here to share with you ... that I made good progress on.

IMG_7021

IMG_7019I'm gonna get my paints and supplies organized so that I can go to the studio to do this on a regular basis. I'd love to be able to paint at least once a month (or more) in the studio. Perhaps I'll become so organized that I could even eventually announce a regular schedule of when I'll be painting there in case anyone wants to drop in and say hello. We'll see what happens. :)
