Time for Plan B!

Saturday was my Harvest Moon class at Unique Glass Colors. I pulled in and there was a police car there with Harold, Margot's husband. Someone had cut the junction box power lines going into the building complex - evidently thieves had cut & stripped the wires for the copper content! This is such a horrible thing to deal with - the loss of time & energy to put everything to rights - plus the expense - is incalculable! My sympathy to them as everything is repaired!!

But what to do? I have students on the way!!! At first I was going to cancel the class & try to reschedule another day so I started calling my students. Nancy "volunteered" her cousin's house. And, since her cousin was already in the class, I took her up on it. Fortunately, the class consisted of Nancy's family so this solution worked quite nicely. Thanks Ann-Marie & Tim for such quick work making space for the class!

The class worked out fine & everyone had wonderful paintings at the end of the day! I love teaching this class - each painting is so different from the next.

Harvest Moon Class

This is my next watercolor batik class - The Harvest Moon. I love this painting and have taught it several times before. It lends itself to many color combinations and sizes which is something not all paintings can do. If you are in the Orlando area and want to give this a try just let me know! Class is Saturday, Sept 25.

So here is the big picture of the octopus - did anyone guess what it was supposed to be? This is a Prismacolor pencil drawing of an octopus from one of my husband's underwater photos. He was in the right place at the right time and got some great photos before Mr. Octo scooted back to his camoflaged lair.
