Hi Art Friends,
I have a Christmas card all ready for you to see on art page of my website. The painting was inspired from going to all the drumming circles in Sarasota, Florida. It is Snow Men drumming in a circle! The words came from my Uncle David’s favorite Christmas song, Little Drummer Boy. He is in heaven and may hear you singing it.
I am continuing researching and learning about birds. I have been asked to teach a class about birds at InterAct Arts Center. It will be how to draw and paint the birds. The first few birds I will teach about are Black Capped Chickadees and then Cardinals. I already taught about Cedar Wax Wings at TSE. I have also gotten back into working with pottery, and I made a vase last week. It is in the kiln.
With the rest of my life, here is what is going on. I am working out at the YMCA and at home. I have therapy swim every Tuesday with Jared at Courage Center in Stillwater. Sometimes I have O.T. there with Alisa. I am also doing chair yoga at Fairview with an instructor named Margaret. She is teaching me and my mother and other people very good stretches and how to balance better. I am going bowling every Sunday. The state tournament is later this month. I am also working on centering and meditating as much as I can remember to be doing every day. My niece Katarina has recommended books for me to read. I get them from the Roseville Library. I read fiction about Al Capone and now I am reading Tracker by Gary Paulson.
Some of my family and friends will get surprises from my garden and my mother’s garden for Christmas.
