Painting the library

Last week was the first time I had engaged publicly about my painting. (Aside from muttered openings in my 2010 - 11 shows).

I finished the actual 'talk' in forty minutes and then we got into an exercise: I'd bought some gear and paper and a jar of Rudbeckia stems and we all got to work.

It was a really exciting session!

Three big learnings
1. People are more interested in how one does something more than why or what

2. People love getting stuck into something

3. Taking along some equipment so people could have a go with untried materials was a bonus - for they love experimenting with something new
