Hello Spring! My favorite time of year in Virginia. Not too hot yet and I feel inspired by everything becoming green again and blooming. Here's what has been going on:
I was fortunate to use my Spring Break from teaching to attend the 2022 Certified Zentangle Teacher Training in Newport, Rhode Island. For 4 days, I was instructed by Maria and Rick, the founders of Zentangle on basically everything Zentangle! I have been doing zentangles since 2016 and thought I knew a lot, but I really didn't. This is the first time I have been on an art retreat and I loved the energy in the room. My goals are now to immediately use what I learned with my elementary art students and to also incorporate more pattern work in my art. Here is a tile I did at retreat:
I am also hoping to record a Zentangle Introduction lesson where I guide virtual students through the creation of a tile. I will let you all know once I do that.
I have recently completed a few commissions. Here they are:
I have added the lion image to my print page so that products can be purchased with this image. One of my customers recently purchased it on gallery wrap canvas and I was so happy with how it turned out. Order yours here!
Some recent paintings I have added for sale:
Andy Warhol Diaries
I recently watched the Andy Warhol Diaries on Netflix. Here are my thoughts.
As always, thank you for supporting me and my art for all this time. My family, friends, and customers who take the time to tell me how much they enjoy my work mean the world to me. Thank you, friends!
