Returning to Florida after a wonderful two weeks in North Carolina was difficult and hectic.
Two weeks is long enough to get attached and to feel like a home away from home (oh my heck, I bet my niece was so glad to get rid of me by then... I was growing roots, people!)
I came home and the house remodel did not skip a beat.

While the crew was busy on the house, I was busy in the studio planning for classes and creating my own art.
This first project was for a class we are having in a couple of weeks. They are altered wine bottles and I believe we have 4 people already attending.
I just scheduled my first private class for a couple of young girls. I believe they are ages 7 & 9. We are going to make mixed media canvasses with metal flowers similar to what a previous student (and friend) Carolyn did here.
My latest painting came about after watching a Discovery channel movie on whales. I was mesmerized by the sperm whale and I have always been intrigued by the myths of unicorns and mermaids. Here is a step by step pictorial.
Thank you as always for following along in both my life and art journeys.
