The lichen was put in yesterday and some of the plant was painted in during the oil painting class. At the beginning of the class, the instructor, Mike Mickelson, our local high school art teacher, does a critique of our artwork. There are 11-12 artists taking the class. It's very inspiring to see the skill level of the artists and interesting to see what subject matters they choose to paint. After Mr. Mickelson imparts some of his wealth of artistic knowledge, we paint for the remainder of the time.
