It looks like this has become a pattern for me, posting only once or twice a year.  I am going to be very diligent and keep my blog up WEEKLY !!  I have had a Very!! Busy year and have changed my thinking alot on the art front.

This year I have taken the Kelly Rae Roberts online workshop that has connected me with So many artist from all over the globe. I feel like truly know this women personally and we are only connected through a Facebook page and ART. This workshop has stretched my mind and heart in so many ways. I know now that ART is my true passion and that I like teaching as much as I like learning. I have been teaching art workshops at the local library and extension office on subjects such as barn quilts and collage.  I have several more art workshops that I am gong to be teaching in the very near future.

As far as my art,, I have discovered that there is nothing as much fun as COLLAGE!!  You just never know what you will end up with.  It is so exciting to put paint on canvas, smoosh around and drip and pour and drag.  There are so many techniques I could go on and on,  With all the new art supplies, inks paints, chalks and tools the possibilities are endless.

My upcoming workshops are Collage 102, Beyond the Basics, this is a free Collage workshop in our area funded by a grant from a Local Art Guild.  It is October 11 and last all day 10 -4 pm.  I am supplying everything , participants just need to come to get their hands dirty and have fun.

My next workshop is a barn quilt workshop where I also supply all supplies for this one but the fee is $ 60.00 per person.  In this workshop , you will create a 2 x 2 barn quilt ready for outdoor hanging and all the knowledge to create a 8 x 8 one.  This also is an all day workshop , 10-4 pm.

Until Next time !!! Create like there is NO tomorrow!!
