The Art of Wendy Vecchi

During my recent trip to South Carolina, I was lucky enough to find and attend an art class led by Wendy Vecchi, an amzingly talented ARTist.  The wall hanging below was from the second class.  The first class was an Ink Technique class where we learned diffferent ways to use distress, pigment and archival inks.  It was a great day!  I was so pleased with how this turned out, and was given high praise by Wendy for my first attempt at a grunge project.  Made me feel really good about my ability.

This second picture is of the next class she will be teaching here in Maryland in October.  This is only one of the four classes, but it is the one I am wanting to take the most - I will have to work on the budget to be sure I can manage it - Katherine will be taking it with me so there will much art flowing in our family. 

Wendy and I

This picture just struck me as one I had to take.  A little bit of country in the middle of the city - how wonderful it was to find.
