Reading a friends blog today and noticed she had one entry each month... shame shame shame on me!!! It's been 8 months since I last wrote!!!  I DO have videos, newsletters, lesson plans, demo's, and oh yea...some art to show!!! Plus a whole bunch of amazing relationships with precious jewels so I guess it's not a travesty that I hardly write. Not even sure anyone reads these as I don't post it very much!!!
But here I am posting a quick note.  I went to the CUSTOMS HOUSE MUSEUM in Clarksville, TN yesterday with 3 of my students for the most wonderful show of artwork entitled Women Painting Women in Earnest.  SIMPLY FABULOUS!!!

Here is the poster I found online....
and below my close up shots of this amazing painting!! 

It's so much more fun to go to museums with artist friends!! after we had toured, we had a few more minutes so we went back and picked our favorite hair, skin tones, fabric, and eyes!! 
We saw things we had totally missed!!!

Thank you Norma, Lenore, Charlotte B and sweet Catey!!!
I had so much fun with you gals!!!

I am so bad....but I have been painting and shot some video to prove it!!!!

I have been sooooo negligent about blogging. There are just not enough hours in the day. I don't even know if I remember how to do it!! But after listening to Artists Helping Artists Blog Talk Radio  today I am shamed into checking my blog and find that I did not post AT ALL in 2016!!! Bummer. Thought for a minute 'maybe i can back date a post to make it go on the 2016 tab? '   That is so bad!!! NOPE didn't even try. Honesty is the best policy. There are just so many hours in the day!! Gotta paint and made a commitment to paint at least 3 hours a day in the new year with one or two grace days built in!!
I have done several pastels this year and I shot video of several sessions and have LOVED the process so I am going to post a few of those here.

 I am including a few more shots of her. I will most likely be painting her again soon!!!
Here is little Brileigh. She is the great granddaughter of my friend Jeanelle and she is a little doll!! So photogenic!! 

This is the one I chose above!!

Is she a little jewel or what?
