New Nature Journal

20 Mar

20150320_125631

I am transitioning an art book from the 1930’s into my own nature journal.  My first entry had to be about all the gorgeous cherry blossoms popping up.

Check on my “welcome” page to find a listing of upcoming Nature Journaling classes at Rockwood Nature Center.

I have been super busy this summer with lots of art classes and one vacation.  I had one private student, taught two Nature Art camps at the nature center, and went to Nags Head for the week.  I will need a break from this summer, and I hope to get it real soon.  I have been working in journals a ton lately and have started a new dream journal.  I won’t be able to share that one for quite some time, though, since I am working on all the pages at once.

I have added 5 new sections to my student art page. It is work the kids did in my Nature Art camp. I still need to get my private students’ work on there.  It’ll be up soon.  Enjoy it!

Spent Father’s Day at the gardens and took a little time to paint. Had such a fun time making this!

This last week has been filled with a lot of class planning activity. I have a new student, Ladies’ Painting Night, and Nature Art summer camp in the works.

…………Well, I’m having difficulty focusing on saying  much more………..I have been reading lots of ADD books lately…….pretty sure I have it……..I’m glazing over while I type……

 

………………bye for now.

Well, I did get it done! My next step is to begin planning for the ladies’ night. (They all seem up for the challenge.) Ladies’ night is when I have a group of friends over to paint and relax with a beverage. It’s learning and socialization at the same time. You can see images of my first painting night offered here

If you live in my area and would like to hang with friends and paint, let me know. I do these from my home studio and accommodate  four friends.

Jonquil Contessa inspired me to post this little painting of my doggie. Very folk artsy, huh?
