Memorial Day Weekend is Here!

Wow, how time does fly by! I had the best of intentions of writing more in my blog this month and here it is almost over and this is only my 4th entry. I have been busy learning some new art skills however, which I guess I could use as an excuse and oh what a wonderful excuse it has been. I have discovered yet another site with online classes (and more), which you must, must visit : . Mystele is a wonderfully energetic and very creative mixed media artist who is only too ready to teach you her unique ideas and discoveries, much of which is free! She has tons of free tutorials on Youtube and very reasonably priced classes on her site. I couldn't take notes fast enough while watching her book arts series! I have also been working on a fun calligraphy class at Creative Workshops as well as continuing on with my "faces" painting class with Sharon Tomlinson. Oh yes, and a mixed media background class with Nancy Lefko at Creative Workshops. Now my challenge is to begin incorporating all of these wonderful techniques and ideas into my own art! I hope to have a new line of handmade journals incorporating all these great new ideas coming out in my etsy shop sometime this summer. In the meantime I thought you might like to see one more of my paintings ala Sharon Tomlinson a.k.a. All Norah'S Art so here she is... her name is MaraLee.
Well, I guess I better go feed my very hungry DH before he mutinies LOL.
Have a fun and safe Memorial Day Weekend and to all those in the armed forces working to keep all of us safe, A Big Hug and Giant THANK YOU!!!
Ciao for now,
