Okay, I would have updated my blog but for the life of me couldn't remember my password. I really must start writing these things down since I have so many passwords for so many different things and they say they shouldn't be the same so I make mine different and then I forget them. How is that for a run on sentence!
I have lots to update - my May Basket Swap, Dogwood Painting Class, Peach Flower Pots that I painted and two fabulous painting classes that I held at the Byron Visitors Center.
I exchanged baskets with my partner - Katie. This was part of the May Basket Swap that Artsymama arranged. How ironic that we live in within minutes of each other so met up before my painting class on Wednesday to SWAP our baskets. The basket Katie made me is lovely. It has some gorgeous fabric yoyo style flowers with buttons and beautiful papercraft art as well as a tin with a handpainted egg (her sister painted it) and well...just sweet as can be. THANK YOU KATIE! It was a pleasure meeting you and sharing our ART with each other.
My Painting Class on Wednesday evening ~ we painted Dogwood
I painted these flower pots with peaches and peach blossoms for a commander's wife to give away to people coming into their squadron and those leaving. Aren't they sweet. They have their squadron painted on the back as well.
I taught two classes today at the Byron Visitors Center and had an absolute blast!
There were accomplished artists in the group (one paints portraits, one watercolor, and several decorators) as well as those that have never painted before this class. It never ceases to amaze me that they can paint a project in 2 hours and they all look so beautiful.Here are some pictures of my morning group!
Here is Jane - she is the one that arranged this with Frances (below) from the second class and I so appreciate them doing that and hope they all enjoyed it as much as I did!
Terry went with me to help me out today - a huge help - thanks T!
