Patsy’s Creative Corner…Moved!

Hello Friends,

Here’s another short video to tell you what has been happening at my house!  I have been busy moving and getting rid of furniture and packing up my son’s room.  I do miss him, though…and yes, I am goofy in this one, too!

 

Also, since I am painting flowers again (and still working on sea turtles for sure!) I tagged this post with Georgia O’Keeffee.  I had forgotten how much I had written about her a few years ago!  So if you love her art, check out those posts, too.  Thanks.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!  🙂

WINNER of Giveaway Watercolors!!

Hello Friends!

Today I am going to be announcing the WINNER of the Giveaway for these two paintings!  I picked from the five names of people who liked the post announcing the Giveaway.  I had to shoot the video last night since we will be out of town for part of the day today.  Thanks to all who entered!  Congratulations to________WATCH!

 

 

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!  🙂

Sumi-e Painting By Children!!

Hello Friends!

I found a short but very cute video of some young Kindergarten teachers teaching the kids how to paint with Sumi-e Ink.  I used to teach pre-schoolers and doing art with them was one of my favorite things.  We never made the kids all do the same project.  We let them paint at their leisure whatever they wanted to paint.  I think this fosters their natural creativity and helps them feel free to express themselves.  I sometimes miss teaching kids, and someday I hope to be able to do something with pre-schoolers or kindergarteners again but only in the areas of art or teaching them to read.  Enjoy this!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!  🙂
