Gallery East Reception

Hi All,

The photos are from the reception last Friday at Gallery East in Ocala, FL., where we are featured artists for the month of July.

It was well attended and we gave away a small piece of original work. The top photo shows one of our long-time students, Drena and her significant other. The second photo shows some of our work and the third photo is starring Carlynne on the right and our friend and fellow artist and OoHA member, Margaret Watts.

The food was good, the people were very nice and the exhibit runs all month. We strongly recommend you stop in at Gallery East in the Six-Gun Plaza on East Silver Springs Blvd. The Gallery is a co-op and has some very fine artists displaying wonderful work all the time. Our work will be there until July 31, 2008. Thank you Gallery East!!

Peace and love,

One more thing

How could I forget to mention this? Gallery East here in Ocala was kind enough to invite me and Kelli to be their guest artists for the month of July. We're having a reception this Friday, July 11 from 5-7. If you're in the area stop by and see us. If you can't make it to the reception the show will be there until the end of the month. Gallery East is in the Six Gun Plaza on E. Silver Springs Blvd. Hope to see you there,


Flowers of Rising Sun

What a treat it was to spend a few days in Rising Sun, IN. What a pretty little place. We were there in mid-May so the flowers were blooming everywhere. Along the main road people planted mini gardens that burst with color so I took a ridiculous amount of photos. I'll just share 2 for now. Aren't they gorgeous?

Been a long time....

Wow, it's been a very long time since we've posted on here. Shame on us for taking this long. There's been a lot going on. We've been busy getting ready for workshops, art shows and teaching our weekly classes. There's Kelli in the above photo doing a demo at the workshop in Rising Sun, IN. We had such a wonderful time with the students there. What a great group! They took the projects and just ran with them. I absolutely love seeing the creative way people interpret a project, everyone is doing the same image in the same colors yet the results are amazingly varied. We did 2 projects in 2 days, the first one combined watercolor and colored pencil and the second one combined colored pencil with silver leaf. The workshop was fun, the people were great, the weather was perfect.....what more can you ask.
The next workshop coming up is in Seattle at the end of the month. I'm one of the instructors at the Colored Pencil Society of America's annual convention and exhibition. This is going to be exciting. I've never been to Seattle and I've heard all good things so I'm really looking forward to seeing a new city. My hubby's going along so he'll get to explore a little more than I will. The exhibitions are always excellent too. It's nice to see the artwork in person. AND.... this year my work was accepted to the show so I'll get to see it hanging there with all the other wonderful paintings. I'll bring some pics back and share.
