Things I've been working on, clay class, and some auction items

For the last three weeks I've been attending an oil painting class (my 2nd time ever painting oils) LOVE the look but man, it sure does take FOREVER to finish this style of painting! I'm thrilled with the progress so far though and am ready to be done with it so I can paint another one.

I also finished my project for the Dewberry Design Team - the directions can be found here
Dewberry Crafts
hopefully soon! I love the way it turned out and you can download the painting packet for this project and those of the other designers.

Clay Class
In clay class we created sunrise and sunset echinecea (cone flowers)






For the last three years I've donated items to the local Museum of Aviation's annual Auction. This is what I donated this year ~

A serving dish with sculpted magnolias

and a window I handpainted with hydrangeas on it.

My boys and I h ave been having so much fun hanging out at the pool! Hard to believe their summer break is half over - they'll be back in school before we know it - they are not too happy about that!

Have a fabulous day!

I think you should have a class on painting one of these windows! Maybe for a whole weekend thing or whenever! 2 or 3 days of painting these would be GREAT! Or a table?
This one is too gorgeous to just pass us by!!!!!!
Have a blessed day!
