Sign up for an art class

Today I play the role of teacher. I am stepping out of my comfort zone, my art studio and into the realm of the classroom. I think this helps me to become better at what I do because it forces me to think about how I do it. I have always been the student. I have been very fortunate to have found some excellent teachers and mentors….in the classroom, Online and Mother Nature.                                                    
I am active at two Arts Councils in my area. The Finger Lakes Arts Council in Auburn, NY at   and Seneca County Arts Council in Seneca Falls,NY. We offer some great classes full of creative students. I would love to hear about YOUR favorite classes.

A Visitor to my studio

Last week my sister-in-law Julie came out to play. She wanted to learn how I do my mixed media pictures. She got right to “work”. Dived right in! I painted along side of her for instructions. I had my 30 in 30 to do. It was fun having someone to play with in my studio. Usually it is just me and the dogs πŸ• 🐢.I really should look into this idea for future classes. Nice job JulieπŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ¨. It will make a nice gift for Rose and Joe’s new pad. 

Got my cup of coffee β˜•οΈ

I can’t remember if I have talked about this before. I seemed to have developed a ritual before I start painting. I make a cup of coffee, set the timer and get my art apron on. Now it’s time to paint. I really enjoy the whole process of painting from deciding what my composition will be to what colors I want to use. Some of it requires a little planning and some of it I do intuitively. I am feeling so grateful that I get to do this almost every day.
