While working at Delilah’s Art & Gift Shop on Sunday I set up a table on the porch and painted.  I like to do that because people are curious and will ask questions about art and painting when they see you working on a piece.  This is a look at the progression of my Sunday painting.

CAM07564A few days ago I posted Geraniums in the Window (see it here) and said that I needed to touch it up a little  more.  I did that last night.  I darkened the shadow under the window and added some texture to the wall.  Also, I hit the flowers with a little more light.  Now it’s finished.

Crocheted Wreath

CAM07389 CAM07388I saw one of these wreathes in a magazine recently and just loved it.  I had to make one.  It was fun to use up some of the left-over yarn stash and create something pretty as well.

I have been asked to share more of my patterns (I make up a lot as I go) and patterns that I use.  I am trying to write out some of mine and as soon as I do I will put a new page here on my blog for crochet where I will share my patterns and links to the others that I use.  Hope to have it up for you soon.

Speaking to Girl Scouts about art

Speaking to Girl Scouts about art

CAM07245Yesterday I was asked to speak to a group of Girl Scouts about being a full-time artist.  They were a great group of girls who toured the Blue Ridge Arts Council before our session and had several questions about art.  I was working on the demonstration painting for our 1st Saturday Paint Party so they watched as I completed the flowers.  They enjoyed it so much that they want to come back and do a little painting.  So we will meet again later in the month!

I did finish the demo painting for this Saturday’s Paint Party and there are still a couple of seats open if you want to join us and paint this little geranium painting.  Contact me today.
