Been Busy!

Wow, it's been a while since I've written! I have been busy with classes etc. but I have been painting a lot as well. I paint on Mondays with the Woodlands Art League group and Wednesdays at Watercolor Society of Houston, then on Saturdays at Studio in the Woods. We are lucky to have some Wonderful models to do portraits and figure work from.
I did the Market Street show again this year on October 6th, sharing a booth with Liz Hill. We had lots of fun and sold some artwork too! My Sister was here which made it even more fun.
Thursday, November 29th I will be speaking to The Woodlands Art League (WAL) on the Betty Edwards book, 'Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain'. (Also a class I teach at Montgomery College)
I'm still working on the portrait wall at the Mitchell Pavillion and have just gotten the photos of the new "Hometown Heros" for 2008. A never ending project! I have had an inordinate number of other portraits to add this year that it has gotten me a little behind with the weather and all. I still need to get the whole wall repainted as some of the older portraits are fading. I did manage to get everything clearcoated this Summer to protect what is there to keep it from deterioraiting further before I can get to it.
This time of year is always busy with last minute portraits to be done before Christmas, shows to enter and paintings to finish up! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
I will try to be back soon with some photos of new works and works in progress. In the mean time, I'm off to's Monday! Cheers, Tonya
