or maybe 'infamous' is a better word.
I'm taking another painting class from Samantha daSilva and my neighbour and I were featured in a photo on her blog about the class, because we did something funny. Check it out to see what I'm talking about. http://www.samanthadasilva.com/4/post/2011/07/summer-series-day-two.html
Even though I've taken classes from Sam before, I still really feel like I'm learning a lot. Not that I don't get stuck and think "oh this is just crap" but because it's a 5 day course, I just keep on truckin', knowing these moments will pop up. Maybe because I'm tired, maybe because of this damn cold, or maybe because what is on the canvas at the moment is actually crap. But then I can always scrape it off or paint over it. And I get these 16 other people to work with and feed off of their energy & experience.
It's a wonderful thing.
