    1. Thank you so much, Mrs. Sutton. I tell all my students that painting, as drawing, is a learned skill. It's much like dancing--some are born doing it, but some of us have to work at it. Still, we can all do it. I hope you enjoyed my blog and I hope you continue to visit it. If you are a teacher, I also have a blog for my sixth graders: http://adventuresinmiddleschoolart.blogspot.com/
      I hope you have a beautiful day.

  6. Hi.. this is Bhavna and I truly admire your work. You really have an unconventional style, although quite different from mine but I genuinely respect it because it is unique. It would be great if you see my work at www.mesmerisingstrokes.com and we exchange our thoughts and broaden our insights.

Some never get completed and I just end up painting something totally different on that panel. Then there are some, that I just have to paint, no matter how much trouble they are giving

Roses, Chickens, and Bees

Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around. I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art. During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world. I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the broode
