Work in progress


Swiped a bit too much


Grils helped with a mixed background. When will I learn to stop when I'm ahead?

Grandkids help me redo acrylic pour

Kids are spending this week with us.  So much fun for me painting with the girls. We recreated the pour I messed up last Friday.  I love the excitement seeing a new to them creative process.



Close ups are looking good!


Different group of colors.  We like it!
 Vacation Bible school craft, you guessed it painting!

Library acrylic pour class

Lot's of fun!  Kids did a good job. We even managed to set the painting level in the back of my Durango before the rain poured down on us..  Lessons learned-- don't mix red and green unless you really want brown.  We actually did a pour, a tilt, a spread using toothpicks and some free style paint additions. Very successful day.  One canvas, 5 students, many many interesting happy accidents in paint.

B/C of rain I left the painting in the back of my car for the day.  Later I discovered that a flower pot spilled over and got dirt on our collaboration.  Our masterpiece was ruined but thanks to Brooke, we have lots of photos.

Students asked to extend the class, so starting in August, we will meet on Saturday mornings for six classes.






If you are wondering why we are pouring onto a 'used' canvas, the reason is I moved my "Owl" before the paint dried and messed it up.  Wiping the surface off to DO again on another day, left an interesting swipe,.

The canvas from that project and this project was used in another Try-To- Learn-To -Do.  Not perfect but rather enjoyable.  Don't remember when the last time I just "doodled" was.  Doing it in paint with a brush is a bit out of my skill level.  However I am getting the hang of multi-color backgrounds, and paint PENS are wonderful!  Still working on letting things dry before I mess with them though--lol

another canvas that was wiped off and re-done.  The idea for the dog came from a piece of fabric scrap. I googled sayings for inspiration before I lay down for a nap--lol.    I may or may not re-do the face-  looks kinda busy to me.

Another painting post



I am teaching a children's beginner acrylic class at our library.  This Friday's lesson/experiment is on a pour method I have wanted to try.  As usual I can't keep from messing with the paint while it is wet!!  Kinda had to fix this up a bit. May be interesting to see how this dries.



Last week we got a shout out in our paper.  Grandson wants to know why people think I am local.  Today I was interviewed for a couple of Future  editions.  Special thanks to everyone who particapted in the photo shoots..
