Gold Sky Workshop

12" x 12" Gold Leaf/Acrylic on Canvas

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending a painting class put on by my friends, Lynne & Kelli - also known as: Hershberger/Huff! They have opened a new studio/gallery in Ocala, and they've started having these Friday Night Painting Parties! For a very small fee, you can come and paint, eat, drink and just have a great time! Everything is provided - and it was so much fun!

Here are our hostesses and teachers! The horse is for "Horse Fever" - Lynne will be painting him!

Here is my beginning - they had already painted the canvas fuschia, and I had just applied the first of my gold leaf.

Some of the class - all in all, there were 10 students. Everyone did the same painting, but they were all different! What a great experience! I've wanted to learn this technique ever since I saw the first one that Lynne did - over a year ago.
