This week I had the pleasure of giving and receiving a gift.  Whenever JoAnn Fabrics opens a new store they give a gift to the community in honor of the arts.  My boss ask me if I would  make the presentation check, and I was so flattered.  Donations like these help local art programs that are struggling to stay alive. 

The second gift was personal and from my dear sister, Lillian.  Over the years I have developed a love of owls.  They are so wise, beautiful, intelligent looking animals.  My husband suggested I use this log to display these precious owls.  Just love it!

I'm loving this class with Alisa Burke,  it has definitely opened a door for my muse.  In the pieces below I am working on a techinque that Alisa share with the class.   

Each one of these pieces appeals to me, let me know what you think.

The Art of Abstraction with Alisa Burke

I have always gravitated to abstract artwork and admire artists who express themselves through this art form.   When I saw Alisa Burke was offering "The Art of Abstraction" class, I just couldn't pass it up.  Here is a look at my sketch book, I really like the way my pieces developed using different tools.  My favorite part about abstract artwork, is it's open to interpretation.

That is all for now, thanks for stopping by.
