Teenie Ballerini

I have committed to two pastel paintings for the upcoming
Pastel Society of Central Florida's Winter Show.
This is my first painting for the show.
I have been in love with this photo ever since my daughter sent it to me.
 It's my granddaughter, Nora Kate, climbing some stairs at a local college.
I used Rembrandt Soft Pastels on some paper my friend, Wendy gave me.
She has been such an encouragement.

My wonderful husband, George has allowed me to adopt one of our spare rooms
as a studio.  It's an organized mess, but to me it's heaven. It's my own playroom!
Finished and framed, ready for the show.
Thanks to my friends Kathy and Mike for the beautiful mats and frames they gave me. This set up worked perfectly for my, "Teenie Ballerini."
Happy Thanksgiving!

Scarlett O'Hara at the Craft Show

My first craft show.  I wanted to get the word out about Scarlett O'Hara's Craft Room, which I opened last month in my community.

The response was amazing!  I will need to expand my class schedule, to include two sessions. I have over 25 people signed up.
The stars are made out of cereal boxes, so I put the work out to all my friends to round up all their boxes and get them to me. I will need 1 1/2 boxes per person...that's a lot of boxes.
The craft show was a great place to run into friends and acquaintances who I have not seen in awhile.
While teaching is my passion, art is my love.
Until we meet again,
