Here is my Sunday Sketch as I celebrate my day!!!
|a day to have fun!!!|
So many wonderful pieces of art & poetry!!!!
Again, today, for the last time I am sharing the completed! yes, completed! painting of my granddaughter!
Thanks soooooooooooo much for indulging me through her completion!
I would like to share some info for my upcoming week... I am attending a local art guild meeting. This is my first venture out into the "real" local art world. I have been invited by an accomplished artist photographer and friend. Deb Drew Brown has exhibited in the ArtPrize Contest in Grand Rapids Michigan - a huge and fascinating event that takes over the downtown area. She is currently showing at the Schuler's bookstore in the trendy Eastwood Towne Center in E. Lansing, Michigan. Deb was also featured in our local magazine Capital Area Women's Lifestyle - check it out at www.cawlm.com
You can view her beautiful work on her website http://web.mac.com/debdrew52
Her photos take you into them... I feel here butterflies touch my skin when I look at them... I can put my hand out and the birds may land on my palm!!! As I struggle to take photos I am in awe of her accomplishments!!!!
Deb is also treasurer of a local art guild and tomorrow (Valentine's Day) the featured artist is an internationally awarded and recognized watercolorist Mark Mehaffey. He is going to speak on how to make your painting your own!!!!! I am sooooooooo excited. I have to work and will get there late but can't wait to meet this man. I have been trying to take one of his workshops for the last 2 years but schedules just don't seem to allow that just yet!
I am definitely moving forward in an artistic direction!!! To quote Deb from her article, "do something that you've always wanted to do without fear!"
Take that quote and run with it this week!!!! Thanks for visiting! Stop by Thursday - I have a challenge for you!
make art, make friends - share art, share souls
