Percolator Teapot

Playing around again with the iphone. Bought the
book, iPhone Obsessed which is all about doing some
interesting things with apps and your photos on the 
iphone so we'll soon see how well I do.

Walks and Snaps


Daily walks provide a multitude of snaps
with the camera, that is if Mini and Mandy
don't catch sight of a rabbit.

And apps on the phone can provide
so much opportunity for changing 
the way the subject looks. This one
is now a 'watercolor'.

Art of the Quilt

This beautiful old quilt was on display at a recent event 
being held at an historic home locally. The quilting itself
is extraordinary in the minuteness of the stitch. Click on the 
picture for a closer look.

Teapots and Friends

Teapots, friends and good conversations seem to 
hold hands. Sandra Malone has several pretty
teapot and cup designs and we are painting a 
few of them in class.

Learning to Tangle

Zentangle is an easy way to create beautiful designs that most people, young and older can enjoy doing.  A pattern is done using Sakura micron pens but can also be accomplished with pencil and other writing/drawing instruments. There are many original patterns and you can create your own and then put several of them together to create your own Zentangle. Do a Google search for Zentangle for lots of information on this fun and relaxing way of drawing. The pattern shown here is one of my versions of Cresent Moon.
