hello! welcome to my week.
i post here on my blog on friday and
for those of you on instagram,
i post my art there daily.
thank you for visiting!
there is an upcoming art show for local artissts.
seeing the flyer inspired me to start painting teabags again.
i was going to enter my painted teabags last year but was
bogged down with work and could not. i am happy to get the opportunity
again to submit my art. i like that this is community based
and is connected with the library. as a child i loved to read
and my love continues to this day. now i both listed to books
on tape and read books. i am sad that many of the children today
have so many other distractions that they have have not discovered reading.
this week i joined kelly kilmer's journaling workshop.
these are some of the pages i created. kelly first taught me
to make my own journals, alter books and collage using paint.
her workshops are lively and lots of fun. i often meet up with
other artists i have not seen in a while.
i also finished the background on this expressive portrait that was started
in a private lesson with jenny doh at studio crescendoh.
i didn't think i did much this week, art wise but now that
i documented my activities, i see there is a lot! no wonder
i am feeling tired today! i admire my friends john arbuckle and
jacki long who posts daily. their links are on the side bar. but i
know myself. i would not be able to maintain the pace. for a long
time i subtly berated myself about it but now i embrace our differences,
without putting myself down. it's much easier that way!
have a lovely week!
