We had a great time painting on metal at the Paint Party yesterday. We painted buckets and trays. They are all so different and all FABULOUS! Great job ladies.
Thursday evenings Adult Art Class was so much fun. Joy finished up a beautiful painting of a tree that she had been working on for a few weeks and Linda was game to try a “Painting with Paper” piece. The beach scene with an elephant, yes elephant, turned out GREAT!
Good job ladies! ANd thanks for the laughs.
Kids ages 8-13 meet on Wednesday from 4:15-5:15. Just contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register your young artist. Let’s paint!
And don’t forget the 3rd Saturday Paint Party tomorrow. We are doing something a little different – painting buckets!
A month or so ago a friend asked me to crochet a Mickey Mouse outfit for her newborn grandson. Really? So, of course, I said I would give it a try. (Actually I said you crochet too. Why don’t you try it? LOL) And here it the result.
I am hoping she takes a photo of him soon in it so I can see how it turned out.
For all my Big Bang Theory friends out there, I saw this really cute little design for the Soft Kitty song and had to make a little embroidery piece. I love Big Bang Theory and Shelton’s need to hear the Soft Kitty song in the first season was one of my favorites!
This piece measures 12″ x 10″. I think I am going to make a pillow out of it.
One thing I love about going different places are the reference photos I take so that I have loads of material to choose from when I paint. Of course, at Sassafras Farm this weekend there was lots and lots to photograph. Here are some shots from the weekend.
The second day of the Pioneers & Primitives Retreat at Sassafras Farm with Suzanne McMinn was just as much fun as the first. (See the first day here.) The attendees spent the morning making bread…homemade, old-fashioned bread and each created a loaf to take home. They also made the “Burnt” Sugar Cake cupcakes to take home.
They completed their potpourri by gathering more items and incorporating dehydrated sliced corn cobs, orange slices, apple peels, cucumber peels and some amazing scents.
And of course, we painted Folk Art Buckets! And each person painted their own amazing design! GREAT JOB!!!
So many other fun things happened as well with the many animals at the farm and I will try to describe some more of it to you tomorrow. In the meantime you need to consider coming to one of our retreats next year. We will have several scheduled next spring and summer. Suzanne will post the descriptions and dates soon and I will share those with you. It’s fun to learn new (or improve) on skills.
