Because Art Should be Play and Not Work

Oh my....

Wow! I can't believe it has been so long since i posted anything here-sheer laziness  I guess. I have been making art in the meantime. I took a class taught by Rae Missigman called Paint Stitch and Store . Lots of fun painting canvas and stitching it into a trifold folder and and several envelopes for carrying many art supplies.
This was a really fun class and very reasonably priced. But that painted canvas is sometimes tough to stitch through, but well worth the effort.
I also took a class at Artful Gathering called Woodland Lighted Theater taught by Iva Wilcox where we made a wonderful lighted scene from an oatmeal container. Here are a couple of photos of the piece that I made.
I have some other things I've been working on and will post more in a few days. It is a wonderful cool morning-got down to 54 last night--a wonderful rarity in Missouri in July! Today is my husbands birthday and we are going out to lunch. Hope you have a wonderful day!
