Learning to paint Grace

This is a class with one of my fav teachers Effy Wild from Canada. Just love how she brings "Grace" to life.

Self-Portrait Class with Misty Mawn

I love the looseness of Misty Mawn and her approach to art. Don't be afraid to change it! This is two variations of me using different colors.

Téada Returns!

What are YOU doing on March 17th?! We are so excited to celebrate St. Patrick's day with Téada at the Belleville Church Roots Music Series in Newburyport. People are still tapping their toes from the band's last performance here in March 2012. This event is sure to sell out, so get your tickets early! Téada is a traditional band with a truly worldwide reach. In addition to their appearance on our Belleville Stage in March 2012, Téada has appeared as a frequent headliner at major music festivals throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Africa, Russia, The Middle East and Australia. Highlights include a 30,000-capacity stadium concert in Brittany, along with performances at Penang World Musi

Jammin'

Mash-ups in music are popular. This is my mash-up in art of two of my teachers/inspirations: Jane Davenport and Tamara Laporte. Put their two names together "Ja" and "Tam" and we end up with "Jammin'!"

Quirky Birds

Going out on a limb here...Ha! Tamara Laporte is famous for her Quirky Animals. This is my take, called "Quirky Birds." I spent a long time on the bark with little tiny seeds. Hope you enjoy their expressions!

Snake Charmer

One of my favorite finds in Life Book 16 with Tamara Laporte was meeting Wyanne Thompson - she taught a class called "Your Normal is not Normal." It was the first time I used egg shells in a piece.....you should check her out!!!!

Bunny Girl

So now I'm in the throes of taking all these great classes from teachers online. I love online courses because I would never get access to these folks otherwise. One online course I'm taking is called Paint Your Heart and Soul 2017. This session is called "Bear Medicine" with Jennifer Albin - a great class My creation is called "Bunny Girl" by Donna The piece really makes me laugh as I remember when I was 5 I had to be a bunny. I had big floppy ears and a tail with pink ballet slippers on. I felt so vulnerable and they kept changing my role. So by the time I hopped out, I remember I had no idea what I was doing. I love this picture she seems a little vacant, too...

Mugging for the Camera

This is a great picture of Aaron with the Ronstadt Generations Y Los Tucsonenses band that played a few weeks ago here in Newburyport. They were amazing. This is special because he is the first person to drink out of this mug.....which was a gift from the Von Trapp Children singers!!!! I think of them often.....fond memories.
