this week...

It is the last week of school (teaching) and unfortuntely I will be very busy so artwork will be put off again. I've got grading... getting assignments back to kids, etc so I envision some overtime on my part.

but I do have some florals in the works... I am on the lookout for fresh from the garden flowers that I want to do some still-lifes with. You know the last one I did (and cut!) and I think I will do it over but with the wood gone and on fisher 400 instead of Pastelbord. It was a bear to get all the spiky detail on the Pastelbord and I don't think I can do it again! & then here I am playing with some spray roses. I think the vase needs to be a little shorter and not so tall. I also think I need something small to place next to the vases... I'm thinking some old marbles.

Anyway things are getting ready for some serious art making - just another week away. In the meantime I just found this pic of me. Its my senior picture nd since it is my 20th reunion I thought I would share it. Some things do get better with age! Although the hair is an artform!

Your paintings are amazing, and so is your hair from 20 years ago. Hairstyles then were sculpted, weren't they?

Love the hairstyle.

As a self-portrait that would make a wonderful subject ;-)

Hi Nicole! I know you are looking forward to having time for your own art! I know I am. I hope you enjoyed you had a good year! I can be frustrating and rewarding at the same time!

Thanks Beth! I really enjoyed it but it is a creativity drainer between work, kids, home etc. Hope I get a hang of it!!!
