I found this painting I had done in high school- not sure my emotional state at the time!

Another painting done in high school-

In progress-a new wall for the art room-

A painting done completely with a painting knife- no brush at all!

My painting completed this week using up odds and end of paint left over from my students-
Looks like my life is in turmoil-

Time to Paint

Painting felt so wonderful last week with the children. I decided to do another one....think I have spring flowers on my mind. Thankful for the sunshine this week!

Art Show

Our school recently hosted a fine arts evening. The elementary, junior high and high school bands played, a wonderful meal was served, and the junior high and high school art students had the opportunity to show their work to the community. I decided to set up some tables and allow the guests to see some of the artists in action. A couple of students showed their drawing skills, one student showed hand building in clay, and I set up a watercoloring station. My original plan was just to demonstrate and have the guests observe, but it soon became evident that the children were more than eager to get their hands on the "hands-on". I invited the children to make something out of clay, and to try watercoloring! It was a huge success and I have plans to do it again next year!

The finished watercolor by me and a dozen (more or less) assistants!
