Here at "Paint Like Nobody's Watching," I have been showing paintings I did awhile ago but never blogged about. In a comment about the painting on my last post, my friend Carol asked, "How many others are you hiding away?" I just loved that comment! Because I am having fun showing work I've been keeping to myself.
I plan to paint again this coming weekend. Last weekend, my art time was spent at an assemblage workshop with Leo Monahan. I have mentioned Leo before. He is quite the phenomenal artist. His main medium on his website is cut and folded paper, but he also works in collage and assemblage. Assemblage is "art in boxes," made with found and saved objects.
Leo's students are taking a series of workshops on design thinking, and later on color, eventually making us worthy of learning the techniques of cutting and folding paper. I have to tell you, I am realizing that far more important to me than the subject of the particular workshop with him is the opportunity to observe how Leo thinks as an extremely creative person. What a privilege to spend time with this amazing artist! You want to see someone get a group excited about an old, run over, rusty car part, spend some time with Leo! Not kidding! :)

Oh, almost forgot, about my own painting above! This is a scene from my own neighborhood! The true, blue ridge...
Thanks for being here...
