I am back!
While in Phoenix we stayed at a friends house. Upon entering her front door my guy noticed this mother and baby and it is a good thing I snapped a picture because the next day that li'l bird was fledged. Other great animals we saw? Bats flying over the pool while we took a wee skinny dip, a hummer buzzed me-I was that interesting, and a frog owned the pool one crisp desert morning overlooking the pool with coffee.
I taught Soy Wax with Paint at Art Unraveled. Don't I look sorta sexy in this pose? And I am in an apron, no less.
I love this event and the people it draws. I felt as though it gave me permission to work outside my norm. Today I will buy myself a Dremel tool, because Belinda, and Jane use one and I think I need one too. Not only that but I need two part self leveling epoxy, gold leaf... uh. hmmm.
Wait till you see what this trip made me make!
Here is a sample I made in class. Belinda and some of the other artists in my class turned me on to Jacquard's Halo line of paint. And you can see the exuberance with which I embraced it. What Whoa~ A trip to the paint store is in order!
