Joyful Elation

6x8 oil

This is from another photo I took in Henlopen.  I witnessed this young girl and her two dogs run down the beach to the water and all 3 of them started jumping and splashing around.  It is the same feeling of joyful elation that I feel when I finally reach the ocean.

I am happy that I have been able to post 3 times in 3 days this week.  Soon my client work will pick up again, so I am taking advantage of the time.

Tonight begins my oil painting class at the Mechanicsburg Art Center.  I have designed the class as a series of painting "challenges" much like the ones on the painting blogs.  Every week we will be doing a different challenge and each one is designed to instruct as well as push the student in (hopefully) a fun way.  I am looking forward to it and know I will be learning from my students as well.
