Felt Painting Class: The Golden Lantern Flowers
Monday, August 13, 2012
On Sunday, I taught a felt painting lesson to a lovely lady, Anna, who kindly sent in these iphone photos of her project in-progress. For this, her first-ever felt painting, she was inspired to recreate her grandfather’s painting of these latern-like yellow & purple flowers.
I was so glad to be on board as a coach & teacher, helping her to navigate these new waters: guiding her through the basic techniques of painting in wool roving, the twists & turns of wet felting, the many currents of artistic decisions that one encounters on the way. I have to say that I am so proud of her & how beautifully the piece turned out. There is nothing quite as heart-warming as being part of someone’s journey as they embark on a new creative direction.
