Animals Llama 5 Animals Llama 2 Animals Llama 8 Animals Llama 10There are very few days that I don’t actually paint.  Yesterday was one of them.  I spent the afternoon riding around the county taking photos of animals for an upcoming workshop that I will be attending on “Painting Animals”.  I’m very excited to be taking the workshop.  It’s my birthday do-over since I was sick on my birthday this year.  A good do-over, huh?!

These are some of the photos that I got yesterday.  A good friend was kind enough to let me come to his place and get some Llama shots.  I have been wanting to paint one so here is my chance.  Just look at that FACE!!!

Odalys Paint Party Odalys Paint Party 2Paint Parties are a great way to enjoy some time out with the girls.  And everyone has a great time learning to paint.  I love the comments from the painters at these parties.  Coming into the art room they always say, “I can’t paint.  Maybe I’ll just watch”.  And then at the end of the evening it’s, “Wow, I can’t believe I did that.”  And “That was so much fun, I’m amazed at how great it turned out!”

I’m not sure who has more fun, the painters or me!  To learn more or schedule your own party for adults or for kids  click here.

Art at the Mill-Spring 2013

I drove over to Millwood this week to see “Art at the Mill” at the Burwell-Morgan Mill.  The mill was built in 1785 and is the oldest operable mill in the Shenandoah Valley.  It’s on the Historic Register and is open to the public.  You can learn more about the Mill and their hours here.    “Art at the Mill” is a fundraiser that the volunteers put on twice a year to raise money to support this wonderful old structure.  If you have a chance drive over to see this wonderful show before Sunday be sure to go.  The show runs through May 12th.

Anniv Painting reworkedIn 2011 I taught an artist residency with kids at all five elementary schools to celebrate the 175th Anniversary of Warren County.  We painted a large painting that each school now hangs for everyone to see.  Read more about that project here and here.)  For that project  I painted a sample painting for the kids to see what it was that they would be producing during our time together.  In the upper left corner of each painting that the school kids produced they painted their school. 

I decided to  paint out the school and paint the Government Center on the sample painting and then donate it to hang at the Center.  Here is the completed painting.  I am meeting Brandy at the Center this morning to hang the painting and I am very happy that they want to hang it right away.  I’ll try to have some photos to share soon.
