Another Wonderful Sketch Meet Up

What a great sketch day with the Valley Sketchers!!!! So many wonderful Sketchers and sketches. Sketching the school brings back so many memories of growing up across the street

from the little Red School House. What fun!!

I even attempted a tree( which I suck at) one branch does not look right. But not bad.

I will post to all the media stuff tonight, just thought I'd abhor off a quick blog entry while I have some wi-fi.

Pretty Vial Things Class with Michael DeMeng!

What a great class!! Wow!! Such a nice time. I am so glad I was able to go! "Pretty Vial Thing" was a super amazing, technique rich class that Michael DeMeng taught at the Art Clinic today. The whole class reminded me a lot of my sister LE though. She would have probably made something crazy rad!

 This is the Vial of Invincability and it is the closest to being finished. Hard to see, but those are grasshopper legs in there. Before you cringe, you should know that they are black and white striped with a large patch of brilliant blue along the legs.
 I cannot wait to finish this Vial, its the antidote! I wanted it to resemble an apple.
 This one still needs a lot of detail work. It is the Vial of Strength. That is an Indian chief with wings.

 This one is just barely started. It is a vial of Invisability (notice the searching indian on top) I have a ways to go on this one.
I am tired and need to sleep.  All this posting and news letter writing I have done tonight took way longer than I thought. I hope to carry the joy and excitment from that class into my work week. We will be so crazy busy at work for the next 3 to 4 weeks! Ugh. I will need everything I have to stay up and going. Big Meet and Greet with the Valley Sketchers this Friday much to do!!  Nite nite!

Work Work Work :)

My "day job" has started to get very busy. I have had fatigue issues (maybe I was a little sick and did not fully realize it). I was getting behind on my new sketch group stuff and just now caught up to a manageable load. My daughter has been having sleep issues. I am trying to start gearing up for the Queen of Arts shows.

These issues plus a few more things have got me feeling a bit overwhelmed. I am hoping THIS is the weekend I get caught up enough to breath. I have to be at the studio to meet with a News Press photographer and (hopefully) some members of the Valley Sketchers so I better finish one more thing and get to bed.
