US Senator Johanns visits Springfield ArtWorks

Yesterday was an exciting day for Springfield. US Senator Mike Johanns visited our gallery and studio as well as other businesses. I participated in a roundtable with him almost a year ago and my vision is starting to take hold. I'm so excited....

Busy times

Finally getting in the rythm of creating after two weeks away for some fantastic surface design classes. Jane Dunnewold was a fantastic teacher....good to have Maggie Weiss in the class too. She really inspires me. Got all my pieces washed and ironed yesterday.

My second class was with Kathy Weaver. It was a refresher for me on airbrushing. It is the first time I have airbrushed on fabric. My pieces are very simple. Kathy taught us some great designing ideas. My first piece is neon green on white...I love it.

Surface Design Classes the last 3 days

Had a great time at my classes at the Fine Line, taught by Jane Dunnewold....just the beginning of new surface design work.
Lots of fantastic art from my fellow students. Maggie Weiss and I had a great time exploring with my tree design.
