Painting From the Intuitive

IMG_1452

For the past five years, I’ve made an annual pilgrimage to the Oregon College of Art and Craft to study and work with Patricia Wheeler. The class is called Painting From the Intuitive and it is five days of painting, plastering, sanding, painting, scratching, scritching, staining, and waxing on wood panels. Since first learning this process, I’ve gone on to add layers of oil and cold wax to the plastered and painted boards, but for the first week of June, it was all about the plaster and acrylic stains. Here’s my week in photos, ending with a stack of boards ready for me to begin the arduous task of adding layers and layers of oil and cold wax. Let the games begin.

PS An added bonus is getting to spend time with my friends Stephanie Brockway and Jason Berlin. I met Stephanie is Pat’s class five years ago and our friendship took root. I met Jason last year in Pat’s class and we’ve been friends ever since. Pat’s class seems to be a good place to make friends.
