The Artist's Way - Copying Gauguin

3 of us did The Artist's Way course together in the spring of this year.

Then we decided to continue weekly without the book, simply asking each other the questions at the end of each chapter. Using a timer as in co-counselling helps to make sure we each have the same amount of time to speak. It turned into a lunch time event.

Now we have evolved into an art class. We started with a still life. The sun doesn't stay still though, the shadows kept on moving around! 2 of us are now working on a copy of a beautiful Gauguin painting. The other person paints her own work. We still bring and share lunch and use the timer to answer the questions.

It is such a good thing to be able to meet up as an ongoing group. We have some rituals which we stick to but we keep on trying out variations too according to our varying moods.
