Fractured Angels E-course

 

In this class I will be demonstrating three complete paintings, fast sketches, journal pages, as well as creating rich plaster layered substrates. I will also be starting a new painting when class begins and sharing my process with videos and written text at each stage of the piece in real time.

The title of this class was inspired by a Leonard Cohen song, Anthem 'Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack, a crack in everything. That is how the light gets in.' This line has so much meaning to me and my desire is to share my journey of finding power in the cracks.
