Also, a humble small painting done by myself  in the class "Studying Under the Masters", which is  called "automat" by Edward Hopper. I really enjoyed learning about him and his unique art.
This is a technique used in one of my  classes to change old canvases we didn't love.

Feather Wreath

This is a feather wreath which was fun to make out of pretty paper I had with a chalkboard like finish background with a little bit of stencil design. I am  off to make another one. This is from a  lass I am taking online from Christy Tomlinson.

I have been having fun working on some ornaments and woods blocks. Also, found some birch cut slices which are great to work with to make all kinds of things. I have been inspired by the online class "The ART OF Holiday Goodness

ess", that started it all. Here are a few things I made.

A little chilly out but sunny so I am heading out to find a few leaves to sketch for an art class. It does sound like fun and motivating me to venture out. My dog is getting a little older so we both could use the exercise. I haven't collected  leaves in a real long time. I turned 60 last month so I need to turn over a new leaf ( no pun intended).
So I will bundle up a little, grab the dog, put on the 02, and make it a go. I wear 02 due to a long term illness and am doing okay with it, but the worst part is keeping the tanks full and lugging it around. I get discouraged and think it is too much trouble so I end up not doing what I want to do.

So before the day is  over I am going to do this... I may take some pics, too!
