Painting in Karen's Garden Again
This is a quick little sketch of some things in Karen's garden. My classes painted there last week, and the weather was perfect. It is such a nice, relaxing place to be. Just as an example of how relaxing and pleasant it is, the neighborhood mailperson eats her lunch in this chair.
The guys in the family planned a road trip to visit some car museums in Indiana, so I hitched a ride downstate with them to the Lansing, MI area where my brother and sister-in-law live. I promised to sit in the back and keep my mouth shut. I'm sure they didn't believe me, but they took me along anyway. I DID NOT GO TO THE CAR MUSEUMS WITH THEM - not that there is anything wrong with car museums. My sister-in-law and I bummed around some funky little galleries and art supply places in Lansing, and I found some nice decorative paper. It wasn't easy, but we made it our goal for the day. We had a great time, and she has salsa all over her purse to prove it!
This week is pretty calm - two classes, and then a painting day and bookbinding day, just for fun. I have a lot of summer de-briefing and fall promotion to get going on. So - if it doesn't rain, I am going to take my computer outside under the canopy and get some work done. Oooops - rain! Does that mean I don't have to work?
