I spend some time teaching a class to my wonderful ladies and I am so grateful to be here now, to see the vibrant blues, to hear their raucous banter. I describe the colors to my visually impaired student, I tell my 94 year old firecracker how awesome her piece is; she smiles a gummy smile(she didn't wear her teeth today) & says, "you think so?" I really do. I really really do. ❤❤❤ #ilovemyjob #arttherapy #seniorscitizensrock #artgrrrlz
At a burlesque show with my besties. I am so grateful for these weirdos.
My wonderful student, an absolutely remarkable woman and artist. She has severe Parkinson's and has transitioned from another life of fine art with very fine detail to fine art with beautiful color variation and form. She works around her tremors with such incredible grace. This is a representation of a mermaid on a rock in the tumultuous ocean. Maybe it's her. I wanted to steal it. There is nothing more beautiful than being able to shine through life's challenges. I can't express how grateful I am to have the privilege of working with these wonderful strong women. #artgrrrlz #arttherapy #ilovemyjob
As always, my students today were wonderful! Two students worked on their own watercolors: a passionflower and a jaguar. Jo did a rainy day scene. #ilovemyjob #arttherapy #artgrrrlz
Artist of the day....Dawn!!!! She was having a really rotten, emotionally weird day & even the resident kitty didn't want to hang out with her(her words, not mine)...but she made this gorgeous piece and as always, insisted on helping me clean up. #ilovemyjob #arttherapy #artgrrrlz
