Bring on the Flowers

It has been so hot here.... I am not complaining but that just isn't normal for the Seattle area.  We love our sun,  when it comes out we want to take advantage of it.   So when it gets hot here ( I am talking above 80- don't laugh)  and we have to find a cool shady space I have been hiding out in my studio with a great fan blowing away.   So my choice of painting flowers has been a no brainer,That and I am taking this awesome class from Lynn Whipple colager extrodinaire.

Freedom, BBQ, Fireworks and Friends.  Keep safe... One year at Seattle Children s Hospital, we were trying to find some art project that would be great for the 4th of July.   I decided on a really safe and sane fireworks... Bubble-wrap!   Just lay out the really large bubble wrap and have the kids jump all over it.   I also found out that there is nothing better for stress than twisting the smaller bubble wrap or poking a few yourself.
