Well, is it crazy time or what? I had my first art showing at our local art store and sold a total of 6 pieces!. It's such a privilege to have someone want to buy what you have done. In addition the art store asked me if I was interested in teaching classes at their store. I begin some basic pen and ink classes as well as some teaching of colored pencil techniques. Looking forward to it.
I''ve been busy drawing my heart out to make Christmas gifts for special people in my life. It's so relaxing and I love when the colors come to me as I draw. The thing I dislike the most? - having someone tell me the colors they would like. It kinda goes against the creative side of my brain and limits the creativity. So far, Hummingbirds seem to be very popular. I know we have many varieties here in Arizona.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a New Year full of many blessings. Back to the drawing board, literally, to finish those gifts.

It's been a year since I've posted last and have put much more upkeep into my teacher blog and connecting with students. The last year has been gaining strength after having back surgery and being pain free is amazing.
I can never give up my beadwork but have moved into times of solitude and peace drawing and creating. The magic of pen on paper and creating something from a blank sheet mesmerizes me. My latest for a customer...Taking Flight.
is drawn as a template and then filled with fun and whimsical patterns. The shading and coloring with pencils or acrylic inks finish off a project. This one takes approximately 3hours.
I admit I'm hooked and my drawing pens, pencils and markers are growing. I've added acrylic inks to my stash and taught a class in my art group today.
