Not a very clear image - my daughter took a picture of it with her cell phone. But you can still see my little frog! I drew this and hung it on my hospital door here at the Nebraska Medical Center. I get lots of comments most every day.

Elizabeth and I decided to do a craft on my last Saturday home before heading to Omaha to the Medical Center. It was fun creating art with my very talented daughter!
Yes, my cancer has returned and I will be going through all of the chemo once again starting this coming Tuesday. I am so thankful that I have a loving Father and Savior with me for comfort and strength! His plans for me are for His glory and I am looking forward to whatever comes.
I will see my art students one last time tomorrow, then head out.

I scanned this in and it was slightly too long but you can see most of it!

Faux Stained Glass Window

This is a faux stained glass.
I designed the overall image and had the help of a delightful young lady from my church, Kylie Steiner, with the leading and painting - three days work total; one to draw up the actual size pattern and two to do the leading and paint, and add trim. It was great fun and we feel it turned out quite nice - those in our church thought so, too! :)

Figure Drawing

Yes - I know it's a drawing but I really wanted to post it on my home page.
I am very excited - we have a local group now getting together with a model to do some figure drawing. I have always loved to sketch figures and I went for the first time last night. This is one of my 20 minute drawings - we did three in all with a few very quick gesture drawings.

My Seniors

I must have thrown, turned the foot, pulled handles and carved at least 50 of these. I make all of my seniors in art a mug for graduation. They do seem to appreciate it. These are just a few that haven't been picked up yet.

Drawspace Artists' Cards

This was such a fun card exchange! I have never created Artist Cards before and had a great time doing it. It ended up I couldn't stop; kept right on making more after the first 6 I needed to make. Anyway, I guess I have extras I can send to others. : )

Growing quickly. . .

I spent approximately 30 minutes on this drawing. Parent-Teacher conferences were rather slow. :) (I never like how pictures scan - either too light or too sharp. Decided to just post them both!)
My little grandson is growing up so fast.

FINALLY - Work in progress....

I finally got started on my peony piece(s). I first began with the acrylic but then decided to also work with my new coloured pencils. I really enjoy both medium. I still have a ways to go with both and then I will have to decide which one to give to my secret sister at church!
I just realized, I am posting these before our luncheon. It is a good thing my Secret Sister doesn't get on-line!

New Addition

I had a wonderful Christmas break - especially since my new grandson was born.

Isn't he beautiful?

Time..... where does it go?

I can't believe I have not even been on my blog for so long. I have looked at it a few times to show others, but I have not posted anything. Although I have finished several projects at school, I have not had any time to myself to work on something of my own. That is what happens, though, once I start teaching.
I am finally soon starting a small colour pencil drawing for my Secret Sister at church. When I finish it, I will try to remember to scan and post it before giving it away.
