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.
Even on grey days when i dont feel like going out into the world, thats no excuse for not creating art! Opened the window and painted the panoramic view from my studio at the pendleton art center in cincinnati. Im really happy with how this one turned out.
Here’s a quick walkthrough of the studio for those who can’t make it to final friday tonight at the pendleton art center.
We’re open to the public today from 6-10 pm. There are about 200 artists on the campus. Its a free event, with $5 valet parking for those who want to get out at the door
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.
