Painting of the Week
With the busy season, I only had two art girls yesterday, but one was Sarah and the other was Megan. Megan was one of my art students who got married and moved off, but has now moved back to the area with her husband. It is great to have her back at art. While Sarah and Megan painted, I did this little Christmas card to take to the Art Guild Christmas party last night. Every year the Guild has a party and plays the dirty Santa game. Last night's party was actually pretty interesting. They had entertainment in the form of a flute player - not just any flutes, but a handmade Indian flutes. The man explained how he made the flutes, and he played for us, which was beautiful. It was all very "artsy" and "spiritual" drawing in the artsy folks from the crowd to make spiritual comments. At one point, I made eye contact with my friend Trixie. The look on her face was priceless. It was that sweet Southern woman look that said, "That's nice. Now, shut up so we can hear the music." I had to look away from her to keep from lol.
