This can be found in the Galisano Children’s Museum in Naples, Florida. You find it on the inside of a small circular “road” lined with corn stalks. The kids loved it. I loved the centerpiece. I hope you do too. Enjoy, hope you are on the road to your “self” and keep making art!

I was just cleaning up my paints the other day when my son, aged 6, joined me and wanted to paint too. As I was low on watercolour paper we decided to use what was available. We went through the papers that had originally been set out to catch stray water and paint and found a few interesting pages to paint! We hope you enjoy our results! You can make art anywhere with anything..just keep making it.

Santa Still In Progress

Well then, this is a Santa that just didn’t get completed in time for Christmas Day.   My children love Mary Engelbreit’s illustrated edition of Clement E. Moore’s The Night Before Christmas.  They love it so much that I had wanted to try to get a small 12″ by 12″ painting on canvas completed for them so that they could enjoy a little bit of Christmas all year.  Unfortunately, I accompanied a family member to the Emergency room on Christmas Eve (she is doing much better now!) and didn’t get to finish it.  So, I am posting the piece still in progress, of course with a few minor changes from the original, but trying to keep with the richness of the original illustrations.  Enjoy, keep Santa with you all year and keep making art!

Some of you know that a member of my family was ill recently.  He passed peacefully away September 23rd surrounded by his family.  My daughter drew this for her uncle days before he passed and I thought I would share it today.  Enjoy her work, cherish your loved ones and keep making art!

Painting To Say Goodbye: Part 1

Some of you may think I am saying goodbye to you but I am not.  Anyone who has been following my blog for over 5 or 6 weeks knows I had completed a painting with a family with whom I had worked for about  year.  We completed the painting during our final meeting just before I moved to Newfoundland.  As promised just after that meeting, here are some of the photographs of the work completed that day by this wonderfully creative family.  I will post more over the next few days.  I hope the family now has this piece hanging proudly in their home as their efforts to work together in creating it need to be celebrated every day!  Enjoy, think about sharing your talents with others in creative ways and keep making art!!

 

Moving Day

Standard

We are getting ready to move from the house we’ve lived in for almost 9 years to a new place (rented for now) in Newfoundland.  Our house is still unsold, ergo the rented house, and we are hopeful it sells soon, but alas, we had to go.  Farewell to Fredericton and hello to St. John’s, Newfoundland!  Starting a new job on September 10…lots of new things but it is where I was born and raised and as so many of us often do…it is time to go home.  Enjoy your day and keep making art!!!

Today, I thought I would showcase my daughter’s works of art.  She loves making jewelry and is doing a jewelry camp this week with an exhibition of the work planned for July 27, 2012 from 3:45pm to 4:30 at the University of New Brunswick Art Centre.  One thing that I have noticed about my children since their Mommy found her art again is that are experimenting much more with their own.  I love it!!  Enjoy and keep making art!!!

Me and my girl! She loves her blue kayak!

If you have never tried it, these kayaks are the best for beginners and experienced paddlers!  I started with my son at age 3 and daughter at age 8.  They are now 5 and 10 and have learned to really love their kayaks as well!  Enjoy, try it…you’ll love it and, as always,but with a twist, keep making art and keep paddling!
