Hello again, it's been a while. I've been busy but running into an old colleague reminded me that I need to do a little bit of documenting here and there. Life is too interesting not to share! Thanks Monica :)

A new job fell in my lap two years ago and it is a dream come true. I get to teach in the TAB style and everyone in the community is more than supportive of the amazing things that go on in the studio. 

A good example of that support is my call to the school parents for visiting artists. One of the parents came in last week to teach me how to knit, she will also join some of my classes to teach small groups knitting, we also had many knitting needles donated to the school. neat!

I've been trying like crazy to improve my knitting skills and this morning I was back at it while skyping with my German in-laws. 

They don't speak english. At all. 

But we talk every Sunday morning and this morning Angelica was told by my husband that I didn't know how to tie up the end of my small knitting project. She totally knits! She showed me with my husband translating and his father laughing in the background. We bonded. Cute, right? Don't mind my messy dining room and flapping baby.

M is for . . .

M is for Mondrian, Piet Mondrian. M is also for Moose, like the darn cutest moose you've ever seen, right? Things have been hectic at the new job, more on that later, but I have just a second to share the darling drawings my kindergartners created yesterday. 

I got this idea from my new obsession, Please check it out, I do on the regular and I get so many great ideas! Below is the picture that inspired this project: 

thanks creative internet folks! Check out more of the cuteness after the jump:

Last Hurrah

My last working hurrah for the summer boils down to what you see here. I spent a month at Spudnik Press drawing, redrawing, burning, printing, blasting, burning, and printing until I got to the above print.

This weekend I get to do some summer art teaching at the Edgewater Arts Festival. I have been creating some stamps to make quick little frame-able artwork with the kiddie passers-by. Here is a sneak peak at my stamps so far:

Summer Job

Everyone should have the summer off to create. 

I think we'd be a better society for it, and not just because we'd all be more relaxed. 
I have found several ways to keep busy this month and it's looking like I won't even be able to finish all of my projects, which is what Saturdays will be for this fall. I've been working on my painting of course:
