Get Going !

Time to get painting again ! Think I'll get busy..... It's time I got some more portraits or still-lifes, or landscapes, or abstracts accomplished.....
The paints are dry, and so are the brushes. NOT A GOOD THING !
Posting more soon !

My Classroom- empty in lots of ways-

Starting down a new path....

I'm trying to start each day ( or at least 3 or 4 days a week) by exercising. I'm already sore from the first attempt, but I will survive it !!

I haven't had time to clean the studio yet, just got my school room finally cleaned, and as I locked it for the last time I reflected on just how much of my life had been spent there !

It was as if I sort of "lived"there, especially as I tried to clean out all my things, I realized this !

So much creating, helping, instructing, laughing, and enjoying went on there !!!

Camera- and Art Show, Mother's Day

Oh no!!!!!

This morning I dropped my camera, What will I do ?

I guess there is no good time, but, this seems to be the worst ! My party is tomorrow, and I don't have a camera that I am familiar with to get photos !! I guess I can use the one from school..... Hopefully I will be able to down load them...

Meanwhile, here is a picture of the artwork from the Mother's Day art show at Laumeier Park last Sunday. My hubby, Bus, said to pick out something, and it seems I had to have all three...(the largest one is only 12x12, though) Aren't they cool? They are from a young artist from Iowa named Chris Vance.. I spent a long time talking with him. He was so talented..... Some artists just have that special ability to capture the color and design, and He Was One of Them !!

Pat Rats of the world, UNITE !!

My studio is OVERFLOWING !!! I have everything pretty (somewhat) organized, but, I keep bringing home my stuff from 20 of teaching ART !! It's unbelievable how much stuff I kept bringing, and bringing to school... It has taken me all year to sort through it all !! I tell you, it's a sickness ! HA !!

I just don't have the heart to throw it away, since I JUST MIGHT need it someday !!!

Box Artworks

I put these boxes in a little shop in Glendale, Mo. It's a darling vintage shop with lots of wonderful decorative items for the home. She has a great knack for picking the unique. Hopefully I can sell some of these "themed" assemblages...
