I have a "feeling stretched" remedy for you. A friend told me this a long long time ago. She said when feeling overwhelmed with all the many task at hand, just pick one and do it. So, I did. The task that I managed was to update my sweet grandson's COTAforRyanT website. That was the most important task.
But I also have my own remedy that works. I made a list of the many task that were building up in my head and getting all crowded and pushed around and causing me to "feel stretched".
And then I managed to actualize and mark off several things. One of which was to get the Lesson Schedule posted over in the classroom of the Faces in Technicolor class. Here is the opening day: JUNE 18, 2010 LESSON ONE (11:55): ♥About the class ♥Canvas preparation ♥Finding a model
LESSON TWO (13:47): ♥Sketch discussion ♥Value discussion ♥Sketch demonstration
LESSON THREE (9:37): ♥Color value exercise ( those aren't times....that is the length of each video)
I can't tell you just how excited I am about the class. It is a good class with great lessons to be learned; but the exciting part is getting to see all the students paintings and feeling their enthusiasm and seeing their pride with painting. Some of my students are painting for the first time and it just gives me such a warm feeling inside.
Remember there is a second free spot drawing. Read all about it in this post. The thing to remember is, if you have already paid for the class and you are the winner, I will refund your class fee.
So, I'm feeling not so stretched now. ♥ Sharon
PS: I have updated the Cloth to Cloth page. See tabs at the top, just under the header.
I love using my hands to do anything. I get lost creating. Painting faces, collage, mixed media, and altered books are my passions.
Digging in the dirt feeds my soul. Flowers are one of God's greatest creations.
I'm shy although one might not know it. I have too many opinions and can't keep them to myself.
Every now and then, I just need to touch cloth. I use unwanted clothing, cast offs, remnants, unfinished works-in-progress, cloth napkins, table cloths, curtains, and my stash which is pretty extensive.
And then, I sit and stitch. And stitch. Because stitching calms and relaxes me. It quiets the chatter in my head and keeps me upright in the chair zone in the evenings. And that is The Cloth Side Of Me.
