At Thomas H.S. yesterday, doing a portrait drawing workshop.  Was so inspiring for ME!  Love working with these kids, and their teacher Todd Stahl.  I was using some of the technique I learned last week from Susan Lyon, and it was very successful.  Feel so lucky to have had the expience of working with Sue.  I think that no matter how long one has been teaching, it is so important to try new ways of thinking, and to not get in a rut!

I am beginning a new portrait class on Saturdays next week, If interested, contact me NOW at: artheart54@hotmail.com.    Thank you!

Been a busy lady!  Finished and framed 4 new pieces for the Rochester Art Club show,  been invited to put work in a show at RPO, am being interviewed this week for Subculture magazine, and am continuing to work on pieces for the show at RIT in July.  Whew. I felt guilty when I just wanted to cook and watch a movie last night.  I continued to feel guilty today (Sunday) when I shopped, did laundry, had an art friend over to eat the food I made, packed up the artwork to deliver tomorrow, and even took time to play on FB.  I even did a special conditioning treatment for my hair.
So, is it not part of our art to take care of ourselves, to take a time-out, to let our minds REST between the work?  Wish I had thought of this yesterday...next time I'll remember!
