Summer Vacation

Each summer I am able to have the grandkids visit me for a few weeks.  One of our highlights is to paint in “Grandma’s Studio”.  I really enjoy this time with the kids.

Ninth Annual Blossoms of Hope

Hello everyone,

The Blossom of Hope cancer awareness and fund raiser is going on right now at the Columbia Art Center, 6100 Foreland Garth, Columbia MD.  This years theme is Movement through Words and Art.

I entered my original haiku and oil painting “Morning Glory”.  Please accept my apologizes for the picture orientation – I am working on it!

Please come out to view all the entries and purchase an art piece for a worthy cause.

Summer is over; kids are back to school, vacation is a memory, and thoughts of the upcoming holidays are here.

I have my list of projects to teach and my list of items to sell in my The Painted Vine Etsy store.

I hope your summer was great!  Please come back in two weeks for Fall 2016 updates.

Thank you,
