This past few weeks have been very full with teaching. I have completed 2 of the three foundation classes: Acrylic 1 and Watercolour 1. This weekend I complete the last foundation class Drawing 1. I am finding that the teaching space is far more comfortable!
I have mentioned that our house has experienced the death/rebirth cycle! We are finally feeling settled in our space. There are still boxes that need to be gone through, one box that seems to have disappeared…but for the most part we are settled. What a long time it takes to get this all done.

In other news I finally got my video done for my Luminous World Art Show. I took a series of videos just hours before the Opening happened on October 28, 2016 but when I went to process them my old computer wasn’t being at all cooperative. Now that I have a new computer I was finally able to do the work to get the video together and up on YouTube. Check it out!
Thanks for dropping by! See you soon.
This weeks video is a narrated time lapse of drawing a daisy in a vase with a cute ceramic ptarmigan all from life. It took me 1 1/2 hours to draw this little still life. But it works down to only 4 minutes for your viewing. Don’t want to torture you too much. 🙂
Next week will be part 2 – the painting of this still life.
I had to purchase a new external hard drive just for the videos. Crazy how much space they take up. So I spent last night transferring over all my videos. Thankfully it wasn’t too many…yet. 🙂
See you on Monday. I hope to get ahead of these videos so that I can catch up on my blog. BTW we are suppose to be getting into the + double digits this weekend. Yahoo! Spring is springing and it is still April. I hope you have a warm weekend where ever you are.

Well this weeks video is now live!
Head on over and subscribe to my YouTube Station!
I think I will be back to painting tonight…well maybe…could be a possibility…
I am trying to figure out my new routine now that I have added videos as well. I have to figure out the time it takes to edit, narrate and so forth. This is #3 so next week I think I shall actually time the whole process. That will give me a better sense of things.
I plan to attempt to do a painting about the amazing thunderstorm we had on Monday night! Thunderstorms are not common even in the summer, so to have one in April is highly unusual. If you want to see a video and read more about it head over to CBC by clicking here!
Well I will see you after the weekend. Thanks for dropping by.

It has been a very busy week. I have been getting prepared for my Watercolour 2 class that is happening this weekend. It is the first time to teach this class.
I am now officially an ART HERMIT! Doing these videos add another layer to my art learning. I am working on getting the very basics figured out and then I will add complexity as I go along…like tips and tricks videos.
Have a great weekend! See you next week.
