I did this painting nearly 4 years ago as part of a beginning Acrylic painting class at UNLV. I should get it framed. There is something about a frame that makes a painting look so special. Today is June 1st and the first day of what I am calling my Art Retreat Staycation. I will be home this summer and I wanted to be able to enjoy this time. I have signed up for a lot of online classes and I need to take time to catch up and create. Instead of becoming overwhelmed, I decided to make "catching up" as enjoyable as possible. So I am going to be blogging about my staycation and posting pictures over the course of the next three months.
So, what did I do today? Facilitated an RCIA class, was lector at 12 noon Mass. Worked on day one of ICAD (index card art challenge). This wonderful event will run from June 1 to July 31st. Everyday I will be completing an art piece on an Index Card. I will be posting once a week on Saturday Afternoon. I signed up for Mary Ann Moss' Sketchbookery class which starts July 1st. I still need to do my day one homework for the Sacred Alter ecourse. And I need to write in my staycation journal, have to make a list of the classes I need to work on.
All in all it was a great day, looking forward to tomorrow. Going to Morning Mass and then home to Casa Eloisa (a derivative of my middle name) to start my artsy day.
