I can't believe I haven't posted yet this month. I started an online class with Misty Mawn that's been absorbing my time, although I haven't done anything yet that's post-worthy.  Learning from her is really a wonderful experience on many levels, for anyone who has thought about taking a class from her. I think everyone in the class would agree that as we're learning new art skills and techniques, we're also learning things about ourselves.  Online classes can also be such a supportive environment, as the other students really help and encourage each other.

The class started with portraits, with an assignment being a number of self-portraits. It made me think of this piece I made a while back, which had a lot of meaning for me. It's hard to see from the picture, but there is a soldered birdcage in front of her face with an old key hanging from it.
