Trying Different Papers


I found a few sheets of loose watercolor paper and decided to experiment to compare their character.

1st Week of Art Camp

After two years teaching art in private schools, half a year of teaching art classes to senior citizens and veterans, private lessons to talented kids and teens at a gallery, I am adding a greater challenge — teaching intermediate art skills to tweens (ages 11 to 13) as a small art camp. Here are some of the works we made. For some reason, no one wanted to share their 1 and 2 minute figure drawings. Go figure. ūüôā

The classes are sponsored by Timberlane Chiropractic at 1996 N Future Terrace, Lecanto, FL 34461. Telephone for an hour of restoring relaxation (in my opinion) (352) 270-8890 and tell Timberlane that Lucy sent you.  Thank you, Bambi and Petr, for encouraging artists of all ages!

By next year I hope to have funding for extra plumbing (a public toilet) so I may host art classes in my own studio!

That Empty Space

There is a hole in my heart where the school tent should have been. There is so much beautiful child art waiting to be shown. Parents, grandparents, if you are your child’s earliest and possibly only suporters, make the most of that refrigerator gallery. These beautiful creations deserve that their inspirations be appreciated.

However, alongside that, it was a stimulating environment for a loose sketch in watercolor to restore my connections to the ultimate creator.

I did see some marvelous work by students around Citrus County and many professional artists.

You will want to stop in the restored Valerie Theater to see Rebecca Pujals-Jones backlit Bodies of Water photo art exhibit upstairs, and also visit her website:

My favorite professional painter today is Barbara Batchelder of Summerfield who painted a boat on the water that rises gently on nearly imperceptable swells “Waiting” for me to raise the funds to buy it.¬†1509824989929-1281433959
