Sandy Ostrau is a fabulous painter, and WS teacher! Last week, I was able to take a third inspiring WS with Sandy. A lot of time was spent talking about palettes, and color mixing. She uses a 18 X 24 in, 1/4 in thick, plywood board, covered in freezer paper. In her studio, she uses two of them! Imagine, a huge palette! One of Sandy's strengths, is her brilliant color sense.

The talented, painter, and blogger, Debbi Smith Rourke, came all the way from Austin TX, to be a part of this WS. This was Debbi's second WS in CA, with Sandy. We are both inspired to no end by Sandy's paintings. See Debbi's paintings at, debbismithrourkefineart.com.
