I could really use a Photoshop course, but meanwhile I'll plug away and probably try a new approach in the next few days.
My life has been full of creativity lately. I'm counting my blessings that I have so many opportunities around me. I belong to a great Arts Collaborative and we had our Spring Show last week. I had only one new picture in it, along with some older ones…
I also belong to a fabulous stitching group which meets one morning a week. Each person is working in a different medium, it seems, and I've been inspired each and every week I've been there. We're all women, and there's lots of conversation and laughter, too.
A friend from my art classes, Rosalie, had an opening for her show of vegetable paintings last week at Create Artisan Studio, our local hub of creativity. Rosalie is on the right in this photo, and on the left is AnnMarie, the owner of this fabulous place. My exhibit will take place here in June. Love it here!
Here's a vegetable-themed doll Rosalie made in one of our classes!
And, as always, our art classes with Amy Ropple, whom I admire so much, continue on. My creativity has increased greatly since I started taking classes - quilt collage, drawing, paper mache, beading, fiber studio - and often we have the handsome Cairo, one of Amy's parrots, on hand to entertain us.
At the moment I'm working on this little beaded doll, just for fun. I'll share a better picture when she's done.
Hope your week is going well and that you're finding time to be creative, too!
