Susan Carlin's workshop


Hello, This past Saturday I did an online workshop with Susan Carlin. It was a fantastic day and well worth the money spent. We started out the day at 10am my time and ended at around 7:30 that evening. A long day but so rewarding. I have taken many workshops, some online and some in person. I have found the online workshops to be much more satisfying and this one was no exception. We painted this still life and I am happy to say that is my painting in the background of the sunflowers, Susan purchased it from me a while back. I have one of my paintings in my painting, lol. So here is my finished painting, oil on a 11 X 14 Raymar panel. The tea cup should be your focal point but it was so fun painting that Mason jar. Check out Susan's work, there is a link to her blog here in the side bar. She will be doing more workshops in the future and I highly recommend them. Have a great day!

Barbara, your painting is lovely and what a nice idea to include your other painting. I so hate I missed the workshop. You should check out my blog as I have some photos from the benefit workshop I did Saturday. There was a wonderful show going on.

Excellent work! Really well done. I love that Susan included your sunflowers.
I wasn't available, otherwise I would have joined you.

Hi Sandra, I wish you could have been there but you had something very important in your life. I'll be over to check out the event.

Thank you Dar, I was so flattered she wanted to use my painting in the background. Maybe you can do the next one, I will have a hard time resisting it too.

A painting within a painting! Very nice Barbara. It also helps to lead the eye to different levels!

Thank you Marie, maybe something as artists we should do more of, hmmm.

Oh My Goodness! What a great job you did with this! I think it's sensational that your painting is part of the set up! The arrangement is lovely! I couldn't do this workshop but it sounds like Susan put her heart and soul into it! You painted until 7:30!! Now that's a dedicated instructor! (and students!) I do plan to take her portrait workshop! Can't wait!

Thank you Rosemary. So glad you like it, I do like having my painting in the painting. I will probably do her portrait workshop too, glad you are thinking about it also.
