Visual Art is a beautiful language using the elements of art. It is universally spoken and invites the view into the artists world. A painter and art instructor for many years, I also enjoy writing, nature, family and friends. Take a peek into my studio; see what is on the easel, read my thoughts and tips, explore how faith, art, and life converge. The world of art is fun, challenging, exhausting and renewing all at the same time!

Its been a week! Student Art Show
Every year around the first week in May, our high school puts on the student art exhibit. As an art teacher, it is a lot of work! Its a wonderful thing to do, and many of our students participate - but it is a demanding and exhausting week! So, this was the week... I tried to start counting the pieces we hung and/or displayed - and it just wasn't possible. The small section I counted was 300 - and I estimate that was possibly 1/5 of the total - but that may be quite conservative... I think its safe to say, over 1500 pieces were hung. Monday morning, it all comes down again - till next May. There won't really be much rest until graduation and finals are finished... in a few more weeks, but hopefully it won't be as exhausting as this week has been!
