Winter has arrived in NC

I dreaded the thought of experiencing themperatures below the freezing point, however when I headed out to my first watercolor class of the new semester it was just 32 degrees. It was fun teaching the class again.Looking forward to seeing some great paintings.
Yesterday I completed a  redo of a painting I did about 20 years ago. I added acrylic paint to the collage of watercolors and am pleased with the ourcome. I thought it was approriate that I finished it on election day."Americana." I will be showing it a new exhibit at the Paramount theater in Burlington

Happy New Year

My gosh it is 14 days into 2013!  Although there were lots of joys over the holidays there was much stress as well. So many friends and loved ones were ill with flu etc. Although I did do a small amount of entertaining ,  I have been trying to get things done with a small kidney stone in the last 40 years I've  experience  at  least 7 stones of various sizes.
I am taking each day a a time as the saying goes. There is  my nativity scene still on my mantel and husband  has needed some nursing of flu symptoms.I have two more art show commitments so I have taken some time to spend at the easel again. I  love painting  figures and am excited to get into a painting of Hispanic dancers with their twirling dresses. I am using a group of images I took two years ago at our church festival.
Also reading "To Kill a Mocking Bird." Every two years  our county suggests a "read" for all its residents and then has related activities planned associated with the book. .  I am just finishing a painting inspired  by the book for an art competition .
It seems everyone is watching " Downton Abbey." Love PBS. My spot on the Antique Road Show is not on the schedule for January. Keep watching for the Myrtle Beach show.
