Sneak Peek

This weekend was fun filled with attending a ballet called "Praise in Motion" with my daughter and her friend, then attended our first cookout at our neighbors home.

Here is a sneak peek at my latest painting. I just have to put a few finishing touches to make it complete. I also made a video of me painting this piece that I plan to post on Youtube very soon.

Atlanta Dogwood Festival

The crowd was brisk today at the Atlanta Dogwood Festival. The park was wall to wall people at the start of the first outdoor spring event at Piedmont Park. The weather was beautiful and the temperature was pleasant.

Trip to Chattanooga

My family and I went on an overnight trip to Chattanooga Tennessee. We went to the Children's Discovery Museum, Lookout Mtn., Ruby Falls and the Arts District. We had a great time seeing all the sights and simply getting away for a while was simply nice. After we were returning home a big storm started to arrive. As we were eating dinner, hail began to fall on our deck. The hail was the size of peanuts.

Creative Days

This week was a pretty creative week for me. I worked on my art journal, made some more clay birdies that will go in my shop soon. Today I worked with something I have never used before, the material is called Shrinky Dinks. I drew a picture on the plastic sheet, colored it then cut it out and baked it. I am not sure what I am going to do with them, but they can be quite addictive once you start making them. I'm thinking maybe make them into a charm or keychain. This is a great craft to do with your kids... heck I loved experimenting with this material.
