Andrea Stewart's piece screams "Dancing Dress" at me! LOL I love all of these works, truly. Wish I could take your class!

Ann Buckner said...

Wonderful work by all the members of your workshop, Sandy. Great designs and creativity.

Kathy Wirth said...

These are beautiful. Such a variety and such creativity! You really taught them well. Maybe I should give batik another try...

Ginny Stiles said...

My favorite this time was Amber Michael's "Drink of Water" which I found exquisite! I can't imagine how she planned this one out. I was amazed at the beauty of the itchimatsu paper which was new to me. The tiny squares are wonderful. When are you coming to Florida to teach this winter!!!

Sandy Maudlin said...

So glad you liked their work. They really worked long hours and were so creative in their approaches to the batik idea. Ginny, please consider making some contacts near you to hold a workshop in Florida. I sure wouldn't mind visiting Florida in the winter, especially to share art.

Happy painting, y'll!

Your students are all very talented and look as though they follow your instructions very well. Looks like fun workshops that you have!

Sandy said...

These were all great! I really enjoyed seeing them and browsing through... I'll be back for more catch up.

Mary Sonya Conti said...

Congrats to all

Sandy and Ginny, I would be interested in taking a batik class in Florida. What part of FL?

Sandy Maudlin said...

Hi Karen,
There's a workshop or two in the wings in Florida waiting to be confirmed. Watch my blog where I post my workshops aas soon as they are contracted. Or if you have a group who also sponsors workshops, they could contact me, too. Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
