Grateful for the Glory

  November is always a welcomed month.  So full of out door activities, art shows,  preplanning for the holidays, art shows, gardening, catching lunch with a friend, and did I mention art shows?  Not only is November a busy time for me it is also a time to reflect and be grateful on a daily basis.  It is the month of Thanksgiving,  after all.  And I have a whole lot to be thankful for. I want to thank all of you who follow me on here, Instagram FB , and come to my art shows. Thank you for supporting me….

Perfection…isms

  Do you consider yourself a perfectionist? Do others think you’re a profectionist?   Or do you proudly proclaim you are not one at all?  I am talking about as an artist…not a brain surgeon. Is it bad to be a perfectionist?  That label kinda gets a bad rap. During one of my classes recently,  a student nonchalantly said she was not a perfectionist.  It got me thinking.  First of all,  I don’t expect any of my students to do things perfectly or hold themselves to the standards I hold myself as a professional artist.  I typically expect my students come…

Angels in July

I am offering another Small Sculpture Clay class series.  This time we will tackle the human form of an Angel.

Some people might look at my work and see spiritual components.  It’s true, my work is inspirational….

Gently gliding into summer

I know it is still spring but Tucson is an exception.  However, the wicked triple digits have been staying off for a longer pleasant spring. I have been thoroughly enjoying the gardening/ wild flowering/ cactus blooming season in my tiny back yard.  I am surrounding myself with nature while I work on mosaic tile projects… (to be shown soon.  Bees, hummers, butterflies, families of Finches and Verdins  have a safe haven right here.  The littlest joys bring inspiration to my art creations. And I just have to say, Congratulations to my daughter, Shauna and her partner, Ryan, for giving birth…

Heart Art and February Happenings

We are about half way through January 2019.  Happy New Year Ya’ll! I am relieved the holiday season is behind us, although a little sad because I love the Christmas season and the joyousness of it all.  But I  look forward to new projects the Lord has given to me for the new year.  Every now and then I am asked, “where do I get my inspirations and ideas from?”  It’s all from God!  He made me, he knows how I am and he puts ideas in my head.  I just go with it.   Every single person has special gifts…

Hot Days of July

Pretty hot indeed. But the garden doesn’t mind it.  I started a “monsoon garden” last week and everything is coming up nice and robust.  I had to hang a shade cloth over it though, so the little sprouts wouldn’t get burned.  It’s been 109 degrees here in Tucson.. ..I know, yuk! I have the screen over the seedlings because Cats you know. The middle photo is my herb garden.  The basil loves the heat.  And then a shot of my shade cloth because I’m  so proud I got it to hang so high and tight.   These days are so…
