Intro to Painting – Abstract Acrylic Still Life: CRITIQUE – Let’s have a GREAT conversation and then clean things up.

Narrative artwork tells a story… what story did you have? I had “Rebecca” by Nancy Werth. What was your story about? What were your struggles? What were your successes? What SYMBOLISM did you bring into the piece? Have you gotten it in the SLIDESHOW? I hope so!
