A few posts back I alluded to different projects in process. This is part of what has been in the works! I was accepted to teach at the Artist Expo Houston this coming July!! I have two classes scheduled and can't wait to get started. Margot has taught at this excellent convention every year since its inception and she will be having a booth on the trade floor as well as teaching. Would love to see you there!

In January, one of my painting chapter's members taught a workshop on creating your own lace patterns using found objects. This is what I did with that information and I am quite pleased with the results. Instead of using cream or white for the lace, I used the lightest color in the roses - a FolkArt color called Spring Rose. It gives a softer, more delicate look to the lace. There are also several weddings on the horizon so I painted this on a photo album cover. Wouldn't it be a great place to store all those wedding details?
So here is my Valentine to you!!
