Paint Out Week at Zoo Atlanta! This kick started so much inspiration for me. TWO of my three paintings sold! Half went to me and half to the zoo for the wildlife. That felt good. To be helping and been seen as a "real artist."

Paint for Peace. An event also in Atlanta. There has been a surplus of crazy in the world this year. I felt humbled and encouraged to be a part of this cause. Creating with people who are very different but all have one thing in common: wanting the hate to stop. Powerful stuff!

Art and minerals show in Thomaston, Georgia at Flint Rose Studio. I continue to be grateful to Flint Rose Studio. The studio owner, Fawne, is wonderful about including artist in art shows, events and just instances to get together and create.  It was through her I was also able to do a Chalkfest in Thomaston.

March's Free Art Friday theme was butterflies. This lead me to the organization: Butterfly Art Project in South Africa. I sent supplies to the children over there to create postcards with the theme: "where does art take you?"

Sent some art that had been sitting on my studio floor to Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary for their fall festival. 

 

 

Helped take the kiddos in Alabama to Rome for Vacation Bible School with another artist friend. Painted the center building. I had home made ice-cream too. Best of both worlds if I do say so myself.

Held a Card Workshop at the library to help spread a little joy to the seniors in our community around Christmas. We had 70+ cards made by individuals in the community that were given to nursing home residents for the holiday. 

 

 

 

Below are a few of the 20ish classes done this year. I know that may not sound like much... But working full time with 20 classes on the side IS a lot!
