The art of the season!

Just got the tree up yesterday. We
took it from the bucket in the garage
and juggled the screws until it seemed
straight. Is it ever? Well with the lights
and ornaments on, it is yet another
season of loveliness to enjoy. I trust
that all of you are doing that with
your holiday preparations as well!

Student set-up

A student of mine has created this beautiful set-up
to learn more about painting glass and also doing
a flower. The cast shadow of the vase is really quite
fabulous I think!
Flowers are among the more difficult
things to paint and so I like to have students start
with one that has only a simple petal formation.
Perhaps she will let me post her painting when it
is done. So far she has just created this and next
lesson will be doing the drawing before beginning
to paint.
