Hello Hello!!!

A giant, warm welcome to Wordplay Painting.

I am so excited to share with you the many wonders of infusing our artwork with compelling, meaningful and irresistible words!

We will begin our class by finding and preparing a few used books and turning them into what will become our Art Books.

Think of your Art Books as small laboratories for exploration, inspiration and play. There we will use words as inspiration, as graphic elements, as lists, and as the subjects of small paintings and drawings. We will also work, much as a writer might, by considering things such as composition, editing (room for the eye…

The Orangies! A toast to our beloved pets!

I don’t know about you, but have hundreds of photos of the pups on my phone 🙂

Action shots, sleeping shots, playing with the ball shots, belly up shots….and they all make me smile! Today, while I was going through my computer looking for a photo of a art piece, I found some early shots of our Kaya and her 10 puppies!

We kept one of her pups, the dear Smudgie, and the two of them lived blissfully and happily together for years and years 🙂 We still have sweet Kaya, and I am grateful daily for her kind disposition, beautiful face, ever wagging tail, exuberance over the ball and/or treat, her nudging nose (if you stop petting her for a second) and even her snoring.

She is a love. pure love.

Do you have a wonderful companion that adds to your days? Makes you laugh? Is an important part of your family?

I want to send a smile your way, and a loving nod towards you and your very own sweet pets, they are the best! xoxo
