Gelli Plate classes in my studio! Yay!!
Partake in my addiction to GELLI PLATE MONOPRINTING! We will spend the day printing with the Gelli plate and Golden OPEN paint.  I will demonstrate various techniques; masking, multiple drop printing, registration, color mixing, using stencils and much more.   This is a wonderful way to work in series, creating design motifs that span several pieces.  Gelli plate and paper included in the workshop fee! You will receive an 8" x 10" Gelli pl...

Tesia Blackburn Artist's Blog: Using the Old Masters for Composition

Using the Old Masters for Composition. As an abstract painting teacher, I am often asked by my students "what should I paint?" I l

IQphoto is just the best! From the moment we contacted them, to the day we saw our photos online it was just amazing. Masha communicated quickly and clearly, every time I had a question. Even on the weekend. I even accidentally clicked the payment twice and they refunded the double payment the very next morning. Super customer service! I love the fact that the prices are on their website. Not having to have emails back and forth made that so easy! And no hidden costs either. And then, on our wedding day at San Francisco City Hall, we met the amazing Joseph. I do believe he has wizard blood! He not only knows all the ins and outs of the process at City Hall, he takes photos and gets shots and I don't even remember him being there! He's like a ninja photographer! He was on time, funny, professional, and so so talented! The cropping of the shots, the soft focus, the action shots...I could go on and on. I am a professional artist and I know good design when I see it. Joseph has an amazing eye for composition. His attention to detail was top notch. Getting married at San Francisco City Hall was our dream. The architecture is so beautiful, it could steal the show. Joseph took photos of us and somehow made the architecture a beautiful backdrop, keeping the focus on us. Unbelievable photos without anyone but me and my sweetie. How did he do that? City Hall was crawling with people and he made it seem as if it was just the two of us. Thank you IQphoto for making our special day even more special. I would get married all over again, just to have you as our photographer! Don't hesitate to use them....they will make your day just wonderful!
