Sketching in the Park

 
 
A Saturday morning spent sketching in Veteran's Park,
Arlington, Texas.  Several artists met and enjoyed the
cool breeze off the duck pond and sketched ducks,
the walking path, trees and foliage in the park.
Those who came out to sketch were Cindy, Sharon,
Phil and myself. Pictured below are Barbara, Vern, Cliff,
  Nancy and Suzanne.

Tina Bohlman Workshop at Fort Worth Woman's Club


Ginger Jar

Watercolor



Lemons

Watercolor

Today was the first day of a three day workshop at
the Fort Worth Woman's Club.  Our instructor is
Tina Bohlman, a well know watercolorist from
Waxahachie, Texas.  Tina is an accomplished oil painter
as well.  Kathline McKinney, the workshop chairman had
several still life settings around the room.  The one I chose had
a ginger jar that had been her mother's.
We drew thumbnail sketches for value studies then painted
our still life paintings.  Great time.  Looking forward to more painting
with Tina. Vist again soon to see more paintings from the workshop.

There is a beautiful Japanese Tulip Tree outside the window at the Fort Worth
Woman's Club where I teach watercolor classes.  Every spring we are
amazed at the beautiful blooms on this tree before any leaves appear
on the tree.  The color of these blossoms are rose, pink and white.
God's color pallette in the spring is breathtaking!!!!

Paintings with Plastic Wrap Texture



Both my Woman's Club Watercolor Classes and
The Upstairs Gallery Watercolor Classes have been
experimenting with watercolor and plastic wrap to
create unusual textures.  Some of the textures
created look like trees in a forest, some ocean waves and
others like cliffs in a landscape.
The following are a few of my demo paintings
painted in classes this past week.


"Aspen Forest"
10"x10"
Watercolor
$100



"Ocean Waves"
5"x7"

"Cliffs"

"Forest Reflections"

TIE PURSES, "CP" Collection


  TIE PURSES, "CP" Collection


These small hand bags are made out of neck ties that were
given to me by my step dad, or what I called him, "bonus pop", CP.
Each purse is made out of three ties. The tie tips of two
and the small end of another tie connects them.  The strap is made from
one of the ties that was used. These are great fun to make. The
hardest part is cutting up a pretty silk tie.
A great project for recycling neck ties.
