I have had a lot of inquiries and questions about webinARTs. Plus nearly a hundred artists have signed up for the September class! So I created this video or "commercial" to help explain and promote the webinARTs September course. Let me know what you think!
Also, if you go to Facebook and "share" the video, you can win this tote bag! I'll draw the winner on Friday.

I was invited to paint a demo this morning at the Palos Verdes Art Center and I had such a wonderful experience! Not only was it a chance for meet 25 wonderful artists but I also was able to return to my old "stompin ground" as I went to high school in Palos Verdes. The entire morning was great. We laughed, talked a lot (oh wait, actually I was really the one who talked a lot) and the painting posted above was the demo completed just this morning.
The photo for this picture was taken by yours truly a few weeks ago when I was in Waikiki. I went down to the beach with my son and his baseball buddies and saw about 100 boats parked at the harbor in Waikiki. I noticed the palm trees right away as I rarely see any trees on the small dock areas. Although I was leaving on a flight the next morning I was up early at the harbor when the sun came up ready to take lots of pictures. One man actually stopped me and asked if I was a "tax investigator" taking pictures for the IRS! I still cannot figure out what that was all about!

Happy 4th of July!

Pin It
Summer is such a wonderful time and the 4th of July depicts everything I love about summer! Grilling, playing in the park, local parades, flags, homemade ice cream, hot dogs, fireworks, cool drinks, sparklers, bbq chicken and for some of us ... watching volleyball. Yep, that's the way I am spending my 4th straight 4th of July ... watching volleyball! I can count on two hands the number of times I have seen fireworks in the sky ... from an airplane ... on the 4th of July! I remember the year we were in Paris and were so disappointed they didn't honor America's birthday with fireworks. Wishful thinking ...
So what is your favorite memory of the 4th of July?
