Apologies for my Absence

Dear Faithfuls,  Please understand my absence is not for lack of caring.  I have been on the road for four straight weeks.  There should be a medal for this kind of dedication.  Actually I enjoy teaching and the chance to share my passion for making things.  Every class has it’s own personality.  As a matter of fact I have never had 2 that were the same.

Classes are like people.  Many are eager, some anxious, a few will work all night while others enjoy happy hour and quiet conversation.  As usual balance is the key to happiness and success.

I took advantage of my time with each group to share my most recent search.  I am presently into tracing everything – scissors, tools, brushes, and anything that will lay still and flat. Here are a few of my efforts.

Give this a try.  It is fun and you don’t have to draw.

    Your April workshop in Santa Barbara was exceptional! Sharing your current working ideas, your mental processes, your knowledge of art and artists, go far to reach, prod, and inspire those you teach. Your dedication to your art is an insight into how to trust one’s own path to deeper, more satisfying art making.
