So I opened my paint box, and was welcomed by my colorful friends.
Oil painting can be a slow process, so I like to work on a few paintings at once. Here are 2 paintings in the beginning stage. It’s enough to get the basic idea. If you think they look good now, just wait until I bring out the COLORS!!! I love this one…goats raiding the garden!
Don’t forget, tomorrow, Wednesday July 6, I am giving a free art class in Old Washington, KY. I’ll have an online version for those who want to participate from home. You can get more details here:
There are lots of creative activities to enjoy…and they are all FREE to attend.
Saturday, April 15, Michael Colemire and I will offer a FREE screenprinting activity in Old Washington, KY from 12-5pm. Bring an old piece of clothing, and we will teach you how to print designs on fabric. You can read more about the activity here: www.grassRootArts.com

All of these activities are FREE, and good for our community and your creative spirit. Please visit my website’s calendar for EVEN MORE awesome activities!
I won’t name drop, but at the reception, I met some very interesting and inspirational people, and learned that Eliza Harris was a real person who escaped from a farm in Dover, Kentucky. Her story is well documented (in more than just ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’) She actually crossed the river 3 times to rescue her children.
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think…I’m not the best at titles and would love to hear your suggestions…
and keep visiting my website and blog…more coming soon!
