Sketching by the Bear RiverWe had a nice, warm, sunny day this week ~ perfect for taking watercolor journals out to paint. I started a new journal, which, for some reason, is always fun.
Today the wind is blowing and it is pretty cold. I am inside working on some more class and workshop ideas for the summer. I have posted my spring and summer classes ~ click on the "Classes and Workshops" tab at the top of the blog, just under the banner. I plan to be adding more as the dates are firmed up.

Here is a pic of the finished model of a McCormick reaper (that I mentioned back on March 2nd) that our 13 year old grandson had to make of things found around his house - or my studio. To give you an idea of the scale, the black wheel is the cap from a gallon jug. Along with the model, his presentation, and period costume, he earned 205 points out of a possible 200. My reward was a couple of fun days working with him on this. I am so glad I get asked to do this fun stuff ~ no one ever asks me to help with math. Being horrible at math really pays off now.
