Working on Christmas early

If there’s any chance I’m giving you a Christmas gift this year don’t peek at the following link and ruin the surprise. Everybody else go here.


New Chickadee painting for etsy, and onions for ebay

I love both of these paintings! Sometimes they are soooo hard to part with! I haven’t listed these yet, but they will be available Tuesday. The badminton one will be in my etsy shop, and the onions in my ebay listings!

Busy Weekend

I taught another drawing class for the church ladies, and determined I am not a great teacher. The painting class seemed to go a lot better than the drawing classes. How do you explain drawing? “See that thing? Make lines on paper that look like it.” Really, it’s all about being able to actually see what you are looking at, and understanding dimension and shadow. How do you teach that? I’ll give another class a try because I want people to paint what they’ve drawn, and it takes that step of actually drawing to get there. But the painting is much more fun.

Our local Costco is out of the big bags of rice. Is that crazy? Are people stocking up to resell on ebay?
