Like all the dogs I have taken out there though, he hasn’t learned to pace himself and he runs until his little tongue just hangs out! Hopefully he’ll learn soon.

Yesterday at Art Class my young students painted a beach scene. They had requested that we do a beach landscape several weeks ago. So we did. And didn’t they do a fabulous job!!! Keep in mind that the class is only an hour-long and they did this in that time. Good work everybody!
This is the finished product of Sunday in Plein Air, and oil on canvas measuring 12″x24″ and available for $245 (or $295 framed).
I enjoy making jelly and jams and plum is one of my favorites. I posted the process when I made jelly last year. You can see it here. (You can even see Truman in the final picture. We miss him.)
Now to paint the picture….
Marlene’s Favorite is an acrylic abstract, 16″x20″ and is available for $225.
The Blue Ridge Arts Council (BRAC) is helping with a Haiti project for schools. There are several really large wooden boxes that they have asked to have painted that will be filled with supplies for school children and delivered soon. Our job, as volunteer artists, is to paint them in fun and exciting ways. I am working on a checkerboard top for one of the boxes.
Another artist worked on painting a scene on the box. These should be finished very soon and will be on the way to Haiti to aid the children there.
