Texas Transplant

You know that all of us Texans are always proud of our state, and look
for opportunities to share that pride.  I was surprised to hear from an
elementary school in Fort Worth, Texas.  The teacher was planning a school Texas program, with the students singing and performing.
She had come across my Texas design on Pinterest, and tracked me down through this blog!  She wanted to know if I would give
permission for them to use my design for their
stage decoration. I said, "Of course!", and she sent me these photos to show
how they used it.  It looks like a great group of kids, and I am honored they wanted to use my design.  Hats off to all of you!  Yeehaw!

Parade of Pigs 2015

It's Parade of Pigs time again!  Our little town hosts the
annual Uncle Earl's Hog Dog Trials every March, and
we decorate these concrete pigs to mark the occasion.  This
is "Frankenswine" entry.  Hog hunters come from all over to
enter their dogs in this contest.  It is quite interesting.  And amazing to me..

Clara in Pencil

Did a little sketching this weekend of my favorite smiling face!
There have been several photos I have wanted to draw, but this
is the first one I have tried.  It was fun, and not too difficult.  I will probably
give it to my daughter sooner or later, but right now, I am enjoying it
sitting on my drawing desk!

I can do a drawing of your favorite little one too!  Email me
for info on children's portraits.  I am very reasonable, and
fairly fast.  I can work from your photograph, or I can come
and take some too.

Sunsets Times Three

I am still teaching kids art lessons on Wednesday afternoons.  These three
did a watercolor today using the wet into wet technique on the sunset,
and then dry brush for the trees. I let them choose their sky colors...they turned
out very colorful!

I take students age 10 and up, and we meet every Wednesday from 4-5 pm.
It's $15 a class, and they are not consecutive.  You can call the gallery
for more info.
