Fishing folks - Jane's workshop

More fishing
16 x 20 Acrylic

On May 20th I attended Jane Slivka's workshop in Deland, Fla.  Jane is so much fun and the day went by much faster than any Friday at the office!  I met Jane about a year and a half ago at an art festival and immediately fell in love with her and her work.  She is very talented but beyond that is a genuinely nice person.  I was not completely satisfied with my painting, but after a  little work felt like it was at least good enough to post to give you an idea of what we did at the workshop.  This was just one of the two paintings we did that day.  The other I'm still thinking about posting.  We'll see.   I particularly like the way Jane encourages us to paint the water and the reflections of the people in it.  It always looks so easy when she does it.  I had to work at it, but kind of like the outcome.


  1. Very nice, Lisa! Really like the ladies, as well as the water. I find water like this very difficult to paint but you did a great job.

  2. This also is wonderful, as I knew it would be. So glad you finally posted it. I just showed it to my husband and he loved it! I love your island ladies.

  3. Lisa, I love finally getting to be on the computer and blog stalk. Its like my favorite thing. So love your blog. I would love painting with this girl as well! Let me say your painting is sooo wonderful! It does not look like you struggled at all in the water! I would love you to teach me how you did that! its gorgeous!! you need to keep painting these people! I think I said that the last time i saw your people. I love them! Great piece! love lovelove it!
