Been teaching a new class..
A journal class.  Something new to me.  It was a lot of fun showing different techniques and ideas for a journal.  The gals that took the 4 week class enjoyed themselves and they plan to continue working this summer on their journals and then when they come back in the fall they want to continue working on them in class.  My book is almost completed.  Will have to start another one.

That is my new Italian fountain pen that I purchased in Chicago.

still life

In memory of one of my favorite antique shops that recently closed.  It needed a lot of renovation to get it back to code.  Hopefully when they are done working on the building they will reopen as an antique shop.  It was 3 floors filled with antique finds.  Great STUFF for still lifes..  It would be nice if they add an elevator to this store/building.  They just better not tare it down and put up a parking lot....

I have been really busy planting my gardens for this summer.  Lots of hard work and the older I get it does get harder and takes longer...so maybe I will enjoy them more.
I still have more to plant....then comes taking care of them.

Also...then comes painting them.  I can't wait.  Watch for them.

It's been crazy here.  I had the virus that most people in my area also had.  It was 5 weeks.  Then at the same time I was getting ready for my new Industrial Exhibit.  That is all hung, we had the opening and it will be up till July 11.  The show is at the Pine's Village Gallery in Valparaiso, Indiana.

At the opening I gave a watercolor demo of some tulips.  One lucky person won the demonstration painting.  We had bad weather scheduled for the day, but there was a good number in attendance with only 4 seats open.

Taught a workshop tonight of pansies in watercolor on watercolor canvas.  Good students, working hard.
