on a Sunday morning with her grandma
and was fingering some of my hand painted fabric. Her grandma said to her, "You know you can have only one choice from one of the 5 booths we have been to recently." The girl nodded while narrowing her choices in her mind no doubt. Not much time passed before i saw her walking towards me with a bright smile. I had a feeling she just might be an artist in the making
as she selected one of my hand painted aprons,
the one with lots of vibrant colors circling about.
Here she is modeling the apron while i tie it up. After the the girl handed me the denero, i folded up the apron and placed into one of my hand painted lunch sacks i use for smaller items and handed it to Haley.
She gave me a big hug ! What a way to start the day!!
then i thought of this string of words....
plain vanilla hued cotton.
In a class setting, I can share my paints, brushes and tools and ideas as i have a history of painting upon things that do not move fast. Flowers get my focus and because you have to put the color somewhere, a good place to start and because i love leaves
and all the many shades of green that shows up in green!
I have plans for these lovely blossoms below.
- What do i do when i empty a jar of possibilities??
- Here are some brushes standing in a jar that once contained inks and now wrapped in a bit of painted cloth.
- I hope you are having a colorful summer
- and finding cool shady spots to sit and sip a cool ice tea!
- be well, Sonja
