Christmas art

got something done but I have to admit it was done on a day of local get together and it was kind of a kit ....... we used our own establishments if we wanted to and so I did ....... I sure do like it and love the concept ...... it will be put out in my home each year for many years to come ... click to enlarge

"Come join in on all the fun" ....

Jeri Aaron has put together a new Art Retreat venue and it's going to be fabulous ... I have known Jeri for some time now, she is so creative ... with her being such an awesome artist herself, she has put this talent to work making her retreats unique ... she thinks of all the "special touches" to make a retreat a very special and personal event ... it won't be so large you feel like you are just one of the heard ... as a friend said it's an "I'm special and deserve it" kind of thing ... this is the kind of retreat you would plan for or go to with your very favorite and best of friends ... this event is the Shady Ladies Art Retreat in Salado, TX (Austin area) in April 2010 ... I will be teaching there along with some VERY talented awesome teacher ... so please click on the link and "join in on all the fun" .......

Son's Wedding Rehearsal Dinner

ok now I am working on doing a little special arrangement for our son's wedding rehearsal dinner table ...... yep it's the frog prince and princess ... I did some altering to the original frogs, made the little crowns and don't you just love her eyelashes .... lol .... I used some of the leaves from our oak tree that I had dried last year and a little stippling work on a card with fall colors then added the bing in green saying GO GREEN, a little double innuendo .... oh I think I didn't post the response card I did for the dinner, guess I better do that also ..... not sure if you can make it out but it says "he ask her and she said yes" ... the card and invitation were a little more of my digital work ... click to enlarge
