Spring Thanksgiving

Well what did you do this weekend after the big Turkey Day?  Instead of shopping I chose to paint.  I have had this canvas now for about two or three years, and it has been begging me to dress it.  So you are the first to see almost.  It was so much fun to do.  I started with a pink paint (I think) and just continued with other favorite colors, then scraped a little, sprayed a little water and wiped, a dab of this and that, and even a drip or two of thick paint and this is what happened.  SO much fun!!  I still will do add to it, but for it is.  I will be offering new classes in January using this same technique.  Be sure to watch for it.  Oh and come by Friday Dec. 4 for First Friday at 10 Central Ave. Studios....hope to see you then!

Yipee for Music!

I am so thrilled to have finally adopted a violen or fiddle..which is it?  Thanks to an artist friend of mine, I now kinda own this beautiful musical instrument.  I say kinda because once I finished dressing her with  glass and paint she will go back to her "owner" at Smiley's Acoustic Cafe in Greenville, SC.  "Fiddledee" I will call her (at least for now) was a part of a group of violens that were donated to artists to paint or "dress up" and then return to Smiley's.  Long story longer---I will give her back too. sniff sniff.  But she will shine in her new digs.  I cannot wait to see how she will look.  Stay tuned!!
