3rd Grade Field Day at the Mason County Rec Park

Yesterday, My friend Vicki and I were asked to help with our 3rd grader’s field day, by providing an art activity. Since it’s the end of the school year, We decided to make a thank you book to give the teachers. We talked to the students about the different things they are grateful for, then made paintings!

It was fun! I don’t film other people’s children without their parent’s permission, but still made a few instagram/facebook stories to share while it was happening. I put them together in this short video for my friends who aren’t on social media.

March 2019 sneak peek studio walkthrough

Im embarrased that this presentation falls short of my original idea, but im trying to accept the idea that sharing my work with you all is more important than getting crippled by perfectionism.

Even though i fell short of my goal (displaying all my paintings from oaxaca together) i am proud of the 4 that ARE ready to show.

This video was made in a rush with my phone, and it has some problems… BuT i hope its good enough for those of you who cant make it to the pendleton art center tonight dont feel like you missed out.

Thanks everyone!

¡Que rico es Soledad Etla!

Breakfast in my neighborhood’s cocina…mexican eggs, black beans and hand made tortillas (corn, of course)…a little different from the pop tarts I am used to eating for breakfast.

I love how the old fashioned ways of cooking still live in soledad etla. these men bring the wood for cooking to the kitchen.

there’s nothing better than a fresh cooked tortilla!
