A Childhood Myth

Is there something you thought you could not do when you were a child that you eventually learned to do and enjoy as an adult? I’d love to hear about it. Lately I’ve been concentrating on finding things for which I am thankful in each day or situation. It isn’t just because Thanksgiving is coming […]

Pet Portraits in Pastel

One of my great joys has been to discover that pet portraits and animals are a subject I’m generally successful at painting. These make awesome gifts, especially if you or a loved one has recently lost a precious pet. Here are a few that I’ve done. I’d love to have a chance to talk with […]

Upcoming Event!

I’ve been working a little along getting ready for this fun event. At first, what I really wanted was an Open Studio. But none of my circle actually lives near me. So I decided to combine the Fall Recital of my music students with a personal art show. My church has granted permission to host […]

WDS Inspiration #1

It’s been an exciting week, here. Although I was experiencing a bit of a low concerning my art, the Central Texas Flood of 2018 distracted me a bit from all that.

Fortunately, I am high and dry, and likely to stay that way. But there’s no traveling unless necessary–school was cancelled early today. What does an artist […]

During the workshop I recently attended, […]

Travelogue Wrap Up and Photos

Today was a travel day, so no painting. I thought I’d post a few photos from my trip. Pumpkin patch we wanted on our way up. Old church in Taiban New Mexico. We couldn’t resist the temptation to get out and photograph it from every angle! Kathy and I at the Rodeo Grill in Ft […]

Monday 10/8 Final Day

We were all feeling tired and subdued this morning. The amount of work it takes to generate so much creativity can really wear you out, especially if you don’t do that on a regular basis anyway. But we dove into the morning demo and enjoyed watching as Karen showed us how to respond to a […]
