It's a wrap.



Finished up the final videos to my on line workshop.


        Loved painting this little sheep on a wood canvas board.  He/She is the bonus lesson for the class.

I had to film in between jack hammers and back hoes.  We are having our backyard remodeled so to speak.  Tearing out concrete and the old pool that has had a huge leak for the last 5 years or more.  I hope the mess and expense will be worth it in the end.

So, a little challenging, but managed to get the filming in between their breaks, as it was quite loud. And capturing the sunlight in between the drizzle and clouds.  My table sits in the sun room, looking out at the big mess.

There are three main projects, a warm up lesson and a bonus lesson, with this little sheep painting.          She even has flowers in her hair!  And, if you like sunflowers, this is a fun project to do using black gesso!

The secret is finally out!

For the last couple of months, I have been working with Kara Bullock on a brand new floral class that is now open for registration.

Preparing for this class has been quite the learning experience for me as well.  Lighting and editing have been been my biggest challenges.  Although I have had a few on line classes in the past, I have learned so much more on the how to of putting a class together.

I have created a Pinterest page for the class and we will have our own Facebook page to share our art, thoughts and tips.

There are five lessons, three main lessons, one warm up and one bonus.  I have put my heart and soul into each of these lessons.  I would love for you to join me on this beautiful floral journey.

Visit:  karabullockart.com to find out more about the class.  Kara Bullock Art

Early Bird registration is open now!!

Hope to see you in class.

Just listed in my ETSY shop!

Visit my ETSY shop and find this lesson and a couple of others.  The link is posted onto the right of this page, just click it on and browse to see which lesson or class suits your needs.  It's fun to paint in your jammies and not have to go anywhere to learn.  I enjoy taking on line classes in the privacy of my own home and hope you do too.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for looking!

Celebrate the dreams, the searches, and the treasures of your life.

                 A quote from a wonderful little book titled: 

             
                Live What you Love, notes from an unusual life by Bob and Melinda Blanchard 
                                       who live in Anguilla, BVI and own a local restaurant.

We just returned from a memorial trip to the British Virgin Islands, where my sister and her husband live.  In Tortola.  We stayed across the way on a small island that they own, Marina Cay.  Our son, brother and sister-n-law were along with us.  Each day was a treasure.  Whether it be sunning on the beach, watching the sail boats come in, listening to the waves lap upon the shore, snorkeling, swimming, breakfast in the open restaurant, or just filling our lungs with the fresh sea air.

                               Spring Regatta view from the back of our little 9 acre island.

One of my favorite memories is swimming with the dolphins.  Something I always wanted to do, but never really thought I would.  Here are a couple great shots of me and my Dolphin friend, Polo.  He is twenty eight and the oldest dolphin in the park.  Each one of them were born in captivity, they were not taken out of the wild.
I love this quote from the book and seems to be very fitting here.  "Have the courage to let your life           and stories and experiences be both odd and wonderful."


Love this shot of our walk down the path to the beach.  If you look closely, you can see the little family sitting under the tiki hut.  Our favorite place to hang out each day.

                                       "May you be blessed with an unusual life"  

Thanks for joining me on my little journey. 

Until next time, 
Ursula
