Art Class, Thursdays at 12:15-1:30 p.m.
Art is on display in the Reference section of the Lakes Region Library until February 28th.
I found a few sheets of loose watercolor paper and decided to experiment to compare their character.
I have been distracted from painting daily by job concerns and a pending move. I am fighting back to brightness with wet paint weekends, painting anything large or small that catches my eye.
Most are lovely, some not, but all are successful paintings for keeping my brush wet.
Timberlane Chiropractic has a large chalkboard in the waiting room for kids of all ages. Add your favorite creatures to the scene. I had a great time planting trees in the morning fog.

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. 🙂
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!

p.s. Treasure Hunt, can you spot my art in this gracious home?
It has been a lovely week for small paintings – mostly card sized. If you would one of my original hand painted Christmas cards, please send your address to Lucy@artlover.com (if I already have your address, just send a holiday note).
Having some fun with monocolor, under video lesson guidance from Simply Painting artist Frank Clarke. It is so nice to have a holiday free to explore new art ideas (even if it is too rainy to run the watercolors outdoors). Happy Thanksgiving!
Our first chips in toward our Christmas ornaments.

This afternoon study got me thinking about focal points, how so many things are around us but not everything gets the attention. As I pulled out a new paper to give it serious rendering, I thought about how painting a picture organizes life to help the best things get noticed.
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.

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.
