On our first day of Movie Theme Art Camp we went with the Wizard of Oz and painted the Ruby Red Slippers and the Yellow Brick Road.  These kids did an amazing job…and Lincoln was their to encourage them!  Nice work everyone.  Can’t wait to see what you do today.



We added a memory stone for Jed to the memory garden.  It’s right by the big tree in the front yard.  I walk by it every day as I leave and return home.  There is one there for every dog that has lived at this house.  I like to see their names every day.  We really miss Jed…and all the others.


When you paint you are always looking for reference material…things you want to paint.  Most people keep a file of ideas.  I’m always adding to mine.
