Magnolia Dreams

Is there another flower that speaks "Southern" the way a magnolia does? It is such a simply elegant flower and a favorite subject to paint in any medium! This is another view of the magnolia class I have been teaching lately.

Ghoul's Nite Out

Halloween is a very favorite holiday! What's not to love? You get to dress up - give out candy - scare the beejeebers out of everyone!! We had a great party to attend this year which gave me a chance to put on a "different" face - that's me on the right. Made my dress and the bat on the necklace. The fangs were interesting to put on. They were individual teeth that you mix a temporary epoxy which sets to the individual tooth. Once it hardens after about 10 minutes, you break the seal and the fake tooth slips on and off. There was one moment of panic when I couldn't break the seal on one of them, but eventually it came off - whew! That would not be fun to explain to my dentist!!
How did you celebrate?
