December Figure Drawing











As the old year is counting down to a close our figure drawing group is on vacation until mid January.  I'll miss the weekly sessions but look forward to 2013 being a very good year.  Out with the old and in with the new!  May the future year bring peace and be kind to all of us!

A Show An Exhibit and Dance too!

  The Nutcracker performances in Winona were fabulous and I'm full of inspiration and sketches for finishing the dance project.  It's hard to believe it's coming up on a year of documenting the ballet this spring.  
This fall also brought a shared booth with my good friend Cathy Missaghi at the Winona Art Walk, teaching High School classes at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum and a workshop with dance props at the Minnesota Conservatory For the Arts.


                                             Winona Art Walk at the Friendship Center
                    Our booth thanks to help from other wonderful artists in Winona for the set up!
My cards and "Mini" canvas with Cathy's encaustics.
                         Students work and mine exhibited with the Nutcracker costume and props from the    workshop at Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts.

                                               

                                               The beginning of the next dance painting.
 Almost done....
Done for now!
