I spent a couple of days taking a class with Dean Nimmer, author and former professor of art from Mass Art. The class was about loosening up and creating abstract art. We tried a host of different techniques which I want to explore further. The class was fun and intense. As always with this type of class, I expect to come out with pieces of art that are worthy of a frame. I think I got a couple that are at least mat worthy but I don't have pictures yet. If you ever get a chance to take one of his classes, don't pass it up. He is fun and he will give you a lot of techniques to put in your bag.
Since I don't like to leave without posting some pictures, here are a few that I took when we actually had a summer day.
