...ten things you might not know about me!
#1. I once met Joan Rivers in person and chatted with her for a while.
#2. I once rode a camel at the zoo.
#3. My first car was a Citation and it didn't have an air conditioner.
#4. I choose bracelets over necklaces.
#5. When I was in ninth grade I volunteered to work in the periodical room in our library so I could spend my time reading Sports Illustrated. I was a big Joe Montana fan back then!
#6. When I was a kid, my mom liked to picnic at the rest stop on the interstate near our house.
#7. I used to be a member of the Junior League.
#8. I am afraid of heights, loud noises stress me and I am a very light sleeper.
#9. I do not stay up until midnight on December 31.
#10. My parents were going to name me Gina Marie.
I am really excited to be finishing up the filming for my next on-line workshop...Art-Full Attache. This will be my largest workshop yet and is filled with over 30 pages of mixed media goodness. I will be giving early notification with special pricing via e-mail so sign up if you are interested!

There has been a lot going on behind the scenes and I am happy to announce that I have a new "home" for all my workshops as well as a FREE workshop to say thanks for your support over the years.
Q: How does it work?
A: Once you register for a free account, you will be able to join in on free workshops and tutorials and also pay for a workshop.
Q: Will all your past workshops be available on the new site and will I be able to access mine?
A: Yes, once you register with the new site, I will manually add you to your past workshops.
Q: How long will the workshops be available on the old site (NING)?
A: I plan to keep the old site open at least through April, giving you plenty of time to register with The Studio and get comfortable with its layout.
Q: This is a big change and very exciting so where should I start?
A: I created a Site Tour Video so that would be the best place to start. It will explain how to navigate the site and answer many of your questions about getting started.
what students are saying...
Join me for a FREE workshop...
As a thank-you, I thought it would be fun to take my very first on-line workshop and freshen it up. I present to you the Urban Journal Remix Workshop and best of all...its free!! I hope you enjoy it!
Q: Will the old version of the Urban Journal still be available for purchase?
A: No, but if you paid for the old version I have set the videos for download so you can access them on the old site (NING) and download the videos and other content before the site closes in April.
Sketching Challenge: Add dramatic shadows to sketch.
Process: I am always in awe when I see sketches with bold shadowing. As I am learning to sketch I am finding this quite a challenge to achieve. For this one, I started with the sketch of the peppers and then added the shadow with Paynes Gray instead of black. I then added the reds, greens, blues and highlights of yellow to complete the peppers. I am not sure if doing the shadows first is the best way but I found it easier (for this sketch) to add them before coloring in the peppers.
I got a bit overzealous with the background color and that said, I wish I had kept the background white. Good thing my sketchbook is all about practice and play!!
