Back to My Blog

 Hello, Friends!  When I finally got around to posting to my blog, I couldn't remember how to get back in😊.  I hope everyone is still making beautiful art.  I started taking Zoom classes from Don Andrews in April.  He's a talented artist and a good teacher.  His wife, Martha, handles the technology.  The two make a great team.  They're both really nice.  The classes are once a month on a Saturday.  Don was a guest at a Nevada Watercolor Society Zoom meeting in March.  I did a painting from his demo.  I would post a photo of his painting, but mine won't stand up to the comparison😊.  Anyhow, enjoy this lovely (extremely hot even by Las Vegas standards)Monday!

Calico Cat

 I painted this pretty baby in my sketchbook.  I've started painting the same cat on 1/4 sheet.  When I finish, I'll post that.  I'm going to try to loosen up on my next painting.

It's Almost Christmas!

 We parked out at a school on the southeast part of town at a higher elevation so we could observe The Star of Bethlehem tonight.  I was amazed thinking that Jupiter and Saturn hadn't come so close at night in 800 years and also thinking that this was what the sky probably looked like 2,000 years ago when Jesus was born.

We've been in the Christmas mood.  We painted the front windows and put up lights.  I made Christmas cards.  My sister sent us a package with instructions to open immediately.  They were our Christmas slippers.  

Merry Christmas, My Friends!  I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and we get back to normal soon!

What Fun!

 Jim and I watched a David Smith demo Tuesday afternoon.  It was so much fun!  I need to work on things like my roots, my water and my rocks, but I learned a lot and, as always with David, I had a blast.

New T-Shirt!

 My sister sent me this T-shirt.  It came in the mail today.  I had to show you guys because I think it's so cute.  I love it!

The Line King

 Jim and I just watched a wonderful documentary called "The Line King: The Al Hirschfeld Story."  It's free if you have Amazon Prime.  What an amazing guy!  He did caricatures of Broadway stars for over 70 years.  I love theater, Broadway stars and Mr. Hirschfeld's art!  This was the perfect thing to do on a 110 degree Las Vegas afternoon.  Happy Tuesday!
