I do believe I'm late with this news but I wanted to tell you that I will be at the Houston Quilt Festival this coming Saturday. If you are going to be there, you are probably already on your way.

You can find me during the last two hour shift of the day at the Cloth Paper Scissors Open Studios section of Make It University. I plan to demonstrate painting faces with Caran dAche and other water solubles on muslin.

More news:
Shady Ladies Altered Art Workshop is a new art retreat in Texas to be held April 2010. Jeri has a great line up of teachers and I am thrilled to be one of them. I will share more about this later but you can get the scoop by clicking over to the website.
Registration is now open and I would be so thrilled for you to sign up. Wouldn't that be fun?
I went on a field trip this morning (video style) and could not help but sketch the tour director. I had a gut reaction to her headscarf and ...........

I probably won't have much art to show until next week, but you never know about me so I'm not saying I will or I won't.

Expect calmness,



  1. Oh, my. Some of my friends left this a.m. to go to Houston for the quilt show. Once again, I was not able to go...I'm jealous...especially now that I know you will be there!! Darn it. Well, have a blast and travel safe. Let us know all about it later! take care, pat

  2. i wish i could attend to see your demo
    great for you and those who will

    terrific sketch
    i am sure more of her will surface

  3. Your drawing is spot on! I knew immediately who it was. Have fun at the show.

  4. Your show sounds like loads of fun!!
    Loved your sketch of Mystele...know she will be honored!!! She is such a doll and such a caring teacher...I am loving her class.

  5. LOVE the sketch! Can't wait to see what you do with her!

  6. Great sketch. I sure wish I could see your demo at the quilt show. I tried painting on muslin for the first time recently and my results are on my blog this morning. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Have fun on your trip.


  7. Doggone! I wish I had known earlier about Houston. I would have made plans to go. I am making plans to go next year, so maybe you will be there then.
    I am interested in the retreat tho.

  8. Great sketch! Sounds like a lot of fun...too bad Oregon is so far away, or I'd be there!
