This is a collage I did for my new class"Crossing Borders". I think it will be an interesting class. I am sure I will learn a lot. We will be illustrating 15 terms in the media of our choice then binding them into a book. I think this will be fun and challenging. This is my personal passport. It is done with magazine pages, photos, marker and colored pencil.
This is a pastel I did of the cows out on our Mackville Road Ranch. This is how they look when they are busy watching me work or paint or prune trees. They are interesting and amazing. It is 12.5" X 17.5" and it comes framed for $850.00. It is at the Knowlton Gallery right now. Sorry I have not spent much time on the blog. I have been learning powerpoint for my mid point review and working on my mid point proposal. I am learning more all the time but sometimes I need to prioritize so the critical things get done.
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
