I am very proud of my niece, Alexis K. Floyd, who is graduating from Effingham County High School in Georgia today. She has excelled in school and will be going to Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC) in the Fall. I know she will do good things! Congratulations and Good Luck Lex!!!
Yesterday at Kid’s class we had a great time painting something a little more challenging than usual. But the kids jumped right in and did a great job. We painted from this cute photo of my godson Chase with his dog Rue! They are waiting at the door for their dad to come home. Could he be any more cute?
Great job everyone!
I got to paint with my young friend, Kaylee, yesterday for the first time in quite a while. She used to paint with me every week so I have missed seeing her. We had a nice visit while she painted this beautiful piece for her great-grandmother Edna who she will be visiting in a few weeks. I know that she will love this thoughtful gift. Nice job Kaylee!
And I am sad to say that I will no longer be working with the wonderful ladies at the Southerlands. They have discontinued their art program. I will miss all the fun we have had. Here is Miss Gaylor with the last painting I helped her paint. I will miss them.
This is number 8! I finished the home of the San Francisco Giants, AT&T Park. This one is so different from all the others as it has water behind it instead of skyscrapers. I loved working on this one.
Paint Parties are a great way to enjoy some time out with the girls. And everyone has a great time learning to paint. I love the comments from the painters at these parties. Coming into the art room they always say, “I can’t paint. Maybe I’ll just watch”. And then at the end of the evening it’s, “Wow, I can’t believe I did that.” And “That was so much fun, I’m amazed at how great it turned out!”
I’m not sure who has more fun, the painters or me! To learn more or schedule your own party for adults or for kids click here.

A record $58.4 million was paid for a Jackson Pollock drip painting on Wednesday at Christie’s in New York. Featuring a mixture of silver, black, white, red and green, “Number 19, 1948″ was expected to bring about $25 – 35 million but instead set a new auction record for a Pollock. This painting is often recognized as a point when Pollock’s drip style really took off. It was made during a three-year period when he had a burst of creativity that helped to change the history of 20th Century art.
At the same auction Pop Artist Roy Lichtenstein’s “Woman with Flowered Hat” sold for $56.1 million. This work, not typical of the comic-strip style paintings that he often did, is his parody of the cubism of Picasso.
