I love getting ready to teach . . . well, mostly. There are some nerves involved, the kind that makes you wonder 'what am I doing.' But overall, I learn so much from getting ready. Trying to figure out what I bring to the students that is fresh and will help them move forward in the quest.
Also, I try to prepare hand outs that will give a visual for what we are working towards. I was very pleased with how these designs came out. One just never knows when everything will align and you produce a finished project that makes you pleased that you sat down to create.
This hand crafted, real chalk seating chart was created for an upcoming wedding. The flowers will be sunflowers, so the sign ties in with the overall look for the reception.
Let your imagination dream of personal touches for your wedding reception.
Make your day special.

The last 3 days I have been working on this quick project. It will be mailed, as is, to The Courtyard Gallery in Asheville for their annual Mail Art Show, 'Anything Goes - Everything Shows.' From looking at their site they usually get very unusual art for this show, but I decided to go a very traditional route - which will be unusual for this show. The piece is a 12" by 12" canvas board. Hopefully it will go through the mail easily.
Here is the image of my most recent project. The client's need was a gift for her son - it does get challenging to come up with gifts for those we love. So she reached out to me to create something for his office with minimal information. I took it as an opportunity to work on some detail work and to practice laying down gold leaf. Hopefully, this will exceed her expectations and will be a treasured gift from a loving mother to her son.
It is a real pleasure to craft such items. Always thrilled to help client put to paper what they have a vague notion about.
