On Tuesday I had a special reunion of small boy scouts...the Weblos working on their Art Badge. It was a cold and frigid evening but the energies ran hot and fast. We created their own portfolio...with a mixed media front...their first pencil sketches of portraits of each other...a small textural still life ...and working with stencils and paint pens. I know now this was way too much but we will be able to complete the list of requirements at our next meeting on march 5, 2013. I was bouncing around from table to table...sweating..no glowing...but I told the little man I was working right along with them! I hope you enjoy this small collection of photos.
Wednesday a new family member arrived here on earth...a precious little man to love and adore. Congratulations Erika and Chris!!! I had several visitors in the studio and my intern and I are working madly to get printer instructions for fabric printing for my Phoenix exhibition. Vicki stopped by to let me know her mother had surgery is is on a long road to recovery. Vicki and Jennifer are strong wonderful women ...who dare to care and be there in these moments of vulnerability. Ken and I made a Mexican rice dish for dinner and I put myself to bed ...the cold is having harsh effects on my joints and immune system right now. I finished my card I made special for Marilyn Stocker...for those of you who do not know she has fallen and broken her arm and required surgery. Send her a JOYFUL note of encouragement when you have a chance...she is a real dear to our Art world here in Licking county.
Thursday ...today...I stationed myself over in the glass studio as we created a drop in afternoon that collaborated with the exhibit in the Art Works Gallery. I had a joyful experience with the SPARK artists...from the Granville studio. I am not quite sure who had the most fun...me or them??? As you can see we made a lot of smiles today...they made my heart smile...making Art Saves Lives!!!!!!!
Yikes...these young men have homework to finish and it is almost 9:00 PM...
I will share the glass studio photos tomorrow...be safe ....Peace.
