Bird prints

Sorry I have not written on here very much at all lately! I have been very busy with the end of the school year and my summer classes started so I am super stressed! I have been doing printmaking with my students for their final projects and ended up making linocut of my very own! Here is my little bird print! Hope you are having a great week so far and enjoyed the long holiday! I will try to post soon!

Summer Art Studio!

Hello! Hope everyone is having a fantastic week so far! I only have three more weeks of school (not counting this week!) and I am so ready for summer! Last weekend I even opened up my summer art studio...

This is a little room off of our garage that has the perfect amount of space and light to be my painting studio! I just love it! Let me take you on a little tour...

This is my little table that I got for $10 at a garage sale and painted white! Perfect table for collaging on...I try to keep it clean!

Next up is the view of my backyard:

In the summer I have a beautiful garden that I overlook...right now there is not too much going on though!

Here is where I sit when I want to relax a little and think about what I will paint next:

Look at these beautiful lilacs I picked to put in my art room:

Here are some paintings I am currently working on....I hope to finish them soon. I am planning on adding lots of collage on top of the painted canvases.

I will post the finished paintings when I am done! Have a great night! I am off to get ready to watch LOST!

Life is Art

This was the theme for our annual spring art show. We had our art show on Tuesday and it was a huge success! Here are some pictures from the show:

Look at all of the beautiful art!

Art is life...life is art!

I am so glad the art show was successful! I am also glad it is done! It is so fun but so much work putting it all together! Luckily I have three other art teachers and lots of helpful students to work with in putting this together!

Oh...and guess who came to the art show:

My Grandma! Yay! She liked the art and the refreshments:)

I am off to go running and hopefully actually do some painting today! Hope you have a great Saturday!

The Sea and Cake

I just love this band and it's name! Two of my favorite things in this world, the sea and cake! The video kind of makes me a little nauseous though..what do you think?

The Lilacs...

This morning I went and picked some lilacs from our backyard. Yay! Lilacs are one of my favorite flowers! They smell divine!

Aren't they beautiful?

Jack Henry thinks so...

He just loves to smell (and sometimes eat) them.

Yay for Spring! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
