Kids with Ravens

Glad to be back at The Studio after a few days away.  The kids did a great job this week with their scary Ravens…getting ready for Halloween.  Lincoln is not so sure about them.  LOL!

Bread Making


Yesterday morning, before my sister has to leave to go home to Georgia (she came up to take care of Lincoln so I could go on my trip to Cape Cod for the art workshop), she gave me and my friend Ruth a lesson in bread making.  She makes a ton of it where she lives as people are always requesting it for family events and fundraising.  It’s a marvelous cinnamon-raisin bread.  We even tried a variation using apples….and it turned out great too!  It was fun to do something a little different from creating art…the only problem is that you can’t just eat one slice.  Before you know it a half of a loaf is gone.  Oops!


I am so lucky to have talented friends who will step in for me when I am out of town and teach a class.  My international students got to enjoy the talents of Sandra Charles and they learned more about Gelli plates and print making while I was away last week.  Thanks Sandra for filling in and making it fun for them.
