Long time no see...

Sorry I have been MIA. My father passed away on March 29th, 2014. It was too soon, he was way too young. He was a wonderful man who always challenged people to be their best. I have not been up to posting since then, but it is time to get back to living. I haven't been my best, not even close. I am afraid I am letting him down. That is the very last thing I ever want to do. I am excited to say I will be attending the Tennessee Arts Academy in July. I will be reporting back on the things I learn. I am planning on going back and posting some of the projects the kids did toward the end of the year- see you soon.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Thinking of you.

  2. Thank you so much. This has been harder than I ever dreamed. That was so nice of you.

Colorful Owl Pastel Drawings

Last year, I attended the Create 2012 conference in Murfreesboro, TN. Several of the teachers from my town attended, and it was great. My favorite class was one on drawing animals, and the class description said something about being "based on the style of Laurel Burch". Well, since I am a big fan of hers, mostly because of all the things she had to overcome in life, I attended. The lady was so sweet, but basically she showed us her work, and let us have at it. That was fine with me! I was ready to just make something. Having an obsession with owls, which dates back to the 70's when they were first in style, I naturally chose to draw one. This is what I came up with- I took it to school, and the kids went wild. I don't know if it was the color, or the glitter, or what, but they BEGGED to make one. They did a great job. I believe these are from the third graders- Pretty cute, huh?

Romero Britto Inspired Walking Horses

In honor of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration,  the students have started creating their Romero Britto inspired horses. I think they are awesome! When they finish the Horse, they will work on the background. These are works in progress...
