House Row: for a house magnet swap on Amusing Muses
This is a quilt my mother made of my kindergartner's Laurel Burch cat drawings. The border has real Laurel Burch material on it. So excited. This will be auctioned off at the Evening of the Arts on April 24th. Thanks mom.
My jr highers have made tape sculptures. This was such a fun project. We made 5 sculptures and used about 25 rolls of packing tape.
Fifth grader's art project for the art auction.

Have you heard of a zentangle? I hadn't until the other day. I think it's a fancy word for a doodle, in which you create patterns and designs that over and underlap and you don't know what the outcome will be until you finish. You just keep on drawing until you say, it's done.
Paint over practice. This was fun, I took one image and copied it four times and then painted over it with water colors first, and then with some acrylic paints too.

I feel like I have neglected this blog. I've just been so busy with life stuff, but it's all good. I have no complaints except for, maybe not enough hours in the day. Today was gorgeous outside and we got an extra hour of sunlight. I can feel spring is right around the corner, or maybe it's here. We've had a lot of rain this year, so everything is really green.

This is one of my favorite postcards from Roc. I reminds me of Spring which is just right around the corner. I love making art in the spring time, birds, flowers, bunnies.......can't wait for it to warm up.
