Paint Party Friday 11/9

Hi Everyone!

I just got home from the best bead meeting. I have a connection with each one of these amazing women that attend and feel so blessed to have them in my life. So because it is so late this will be a short read. Things seem to be going pretty well with life right now. Shhhh don't want to say that too loudly. LOL I have my first meeting for the Art Committee next Wednesday and I am excited about that. I have been making cabs and getting some painting in. As far as the watercolors. I am coming along with that slowly. It feels like I am not relaxed with it. So as I tell my students RELAX. For art this week.

I just love this kid. I am happy with the fingers and the nose.

Just playing around and this is what I get
 The photo isn't very good, she is actually darker than this, 
but I love her face.

Some cabs made. These are glass and ready for beading.

 You can get these and more at

Linking to Paint Party Friday with a big thanks to Eva and Kristin.

Honor and integrity in art, in life.
