Beyond the Wall

Beyond the wall petersburg


Happy Monday.


Here’s a primacolor drawing of a building in Petersburg, Va.

I have been building and prepping 3 separate journals, 2 dream and one wreck this journal. I’m trying to get back in the swing of homescholing and my work at the nature center will have  a huge, horrific role in my dream journals.

I need to make a painting again……….sigh :/

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.

Tiny Sketch,  ink


I spend a lot of time sitting in the car, waiting for my daughter while she’s in class. It gives me a great opportunity to work on my drawing skills. I will post this one on the Urban Sketchers Facebook page!

A cooperative drawing with my husband. We challenged each other to draw with our non-dominant hands.

I am thankful that November is welcoming us with plenty of warmth today. Now, if I could convince her to give us sunshine…
