Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

I opened the first videos on Mystele's GUT ART classes..... and she is a natural at teaching. She can really get you inspired to strike out and try new things in a free way.... We are going to make a book to remember all the classes and learning by.....and as I was preparing and cleaning my art space in the studio, I came across a pile of papers, some art notes from last year and a magazine I had torn collage material out of. Well, I was flipping through the magazine and came across this ad of a child eating her food.... and I got the idea to just paint on top of it and make it what "I" saw! It is a "Thank You" to Mystele for giving these classes to help us find or discover... "Ourselves" and our true style ....I think I said that right!? So here is my first FUN to just PLAY....oil pastels on top of magazine ad.....and a HEARTY THANK YOU MYSTELE.....!! Enjoy... and Blessings! ..... to be continued!! Click on picture to enlarge.

What a cutie! And you did such a good job of altering it into a colorful message that's yours!
Perhaps Mystele's class can be that vacation you need & deserve.
Be Well...

What a fun painting! Now, this gives a whole new meaning to the term, "Gut Art".
